The Webinar is designed to help business owners and operators in Nigeria learn how they can reduce their energy expenditure and increase their profit margin by switching from petrol-powered and diesel-powered generators to low-cost renewable energy solutions like solar. It will also explore business opportunities in the fast-growing renewable energy sector and how active and aspiring entrepreneurs in the country can tap into them.
It is one of the Wema Bank’s efforts to deepen knowledge and impact young and innovative entrepreneurs and start-ups seeking to grow and harness their skills and creativity from mere talent to viable business enterprises with meaningful and sustainable contributions to the economy.
Energy prices have been on the rise in Nigeria and around the world in recent times. The prices of diesel and petrol, for example, have soared at different points this year, while electricity tariffs from the national grid have continued to go up. These costs have increased the operating costs and affected the profitability of businesses.
Another edition of Wema Bank’s SME Webinar on Friday, June 17th, 2022, by 10:00 am as experts in the energy and financial services sectors from within and outside Nigeria discuss the topic, Managing Rising Energy Costs in Nigeria through Renewable Energy: Strategies for SMEs.
