NIAF has been working in the Nigerian electricity sector since 2007 with the objective of reducing the degree to which power shortages impede economic growth across the country. The NIAF Power workstream is divided into three Activity Areas as follows:
- Privatisation – targeting the increasing of private sector participation in the sector.
- Market Reform – assisting with the preparation for the commencement of the Transitional Electricity Market (TEM) and then the Medium Term Market (MTM).
- Service Delivery – focusing on the more immediate maintenance and expansion of power generation, transmission and distribution capacity.
To achieve these ends, NIAF works with the following government institutions, primarily as a provider of technical assistance:
- Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE)
- Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC)
- Ministry of Power (MoP)
- Presidential Task Force on Power (PTFP)
- Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN)
- Nigerian Bulk Electricity Trader (NBET)
- Nigeria Electricity Liabilities Management Company (NELMCO)
- Transition Steering Group (TSG)
- Electricity Management Service (EMS)
- Lagos State Electricity Board
