The Lagos State Government has unveiled its energy conservation and management implementation plan for various government ministries, departments and agencies across the state.
Lagos State Electricity Board chief executive Mukhtaar Tijani made the point in a statement on Tuesday.
Tijani explained that the plan is among the main recommendations of energy audits conducted on some government facilities and the need for the state to improve its energy conservation to support efforts to redefine the energy mix and distribution systems. .
He said: “Clearly this administration is orchestrating the infrastructure of a sustainable smart city with a focus on safety and resilience. Conservation and efficient use of energy should be a key part of the overall plan.
“Another key part of the plan is the use of smart energy sensors with multiple functions to obtain the corresponding information and share the data for predictive analysis.
“This data can be used for sensing, forecasting energy needs and providing valuable insights during peak periods. The implementation exercise will also create an opportunity to sensitize staff members from various MDAs to make informed decisions on energy use and assist the government in coming up with relevant solutions to energy challenges.
Tijani added that the energy conservation project will be carried out in phases across all institutions.
