Sustainable Energy Development Group

SEDG is a dedicated study group comprised of passionate experts in the fields of power and energy. We are driven by the pressing need to bridge the gap between the available energy supply and the growing population in Africa, especially in Nigeria. Our organization is not political and does not seek profit; rather, it is a platform created out of a shared commitment to the SDG 7 Goal. We aim to provide an information hub for the youth, empowering them with knowledge about the critical role they play in developing the nation and contributing to innovations for sustainable, reliable, and affordable clean energy for all.
