Internal and External Relationships

Energy is an input to all productive sectors of the economy. Because of the energy implications of overall socio-economic development plans, multi-sectoral inputs are needed for integrated energy planning.

The production, conversion and delivery of the various forms of energy require activities which cut across the functions of various ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) including, Petroleum Resources, Solid Minerals Development, Power and Steel, Transport, Communications, Agriculture, Environment etc

To ensure a co-ordinated development of the energy sector in consonance with the overall national development goals, the Energy Commission of Nigeria (ECN), through its policies and plans, has specified the various contributions expected of the energy supply sub-sectors to the total energy mix as well as the application of the energy types to the different consumption sectors.

It is also the responsibility of the Commission to monitor the performances of the various institutions to ensure compliance with the overall energy policy and programme of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, FRN.

Also, in the pursuit of Regional and International Energy Cooperation and Development objectives, linkages have been established with various international organisations, including the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the World Energy Council (WEC), the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), the International Energy Charter (IECh), the United Nation Development Programme (UNDP), and other relevant partners in the sector.
