The National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI) is actively seeking collaborations with foreign investors to bolster local production and domestication of lithium batteries and other renewable energy solutions.

Dr. Bashir Gwandu, the Executive Vice Chairman of NASENI, expressed the agency’s readiness to partner with international companies willing to establish their industries in Nigeria for the production of renewable energy solutions, electric vehicle parts, and other capital goods aimed at creating job opportunities.

In a recent meeting with a business delegation from LEMI Technology in Shenzhen, China, held at NASENI’s headquarters in Abuja, Gwandu highlighted the agency’s efforts to attract solar cell manufacturing to complement its existing work on solar panel assembly. He also mentioned ongoing discussions with various companies from around the world to explore partnerships for the local production of lithium-based end-products in Nigeria.

NASENI intends to collaborate with the National Automotive Design and Development Council to promote the development and production of electric vehicles and the conversion of existing vehicles to electric vehicles.

Gwandu suggested exploring areas of collaboration with LEMI Technology specifically in the production of lithium batteries, with a focus on ensuring the safest means of producing these batteries. The founder of LEMI Technology, Ms. Joyce Chen, expressed the company’s eagerness to partner with NASENI and invest in Nigeria’s renewable energy sector.
