An Energy Idea Pavilion at N.I.E.S 2023; A showcase of Ideas for Cleaner Fuels
This is a call out to all; Educational Institutions, Youth Programmes, STEAM Programmes, Incubators and inventors!
NIES Youth Idea Lab was launched at the 5th Edition of the Nigeria International Energy Summit – the official Energy Trade event for the Federal Republic of Nigeria in February 2022.
The programme is designed to inspire a new generation of entrepreneurs to embrace the challenge of net zero and help deliver a step change in performance. This programme will contribute to the growth and development of the energy ecosystem and entrepreneurship in Nigeria.
Our vision is that this programme will accelerate game-changing companies, creating start-ups with technologies for cleaner fuels, support start-ups to validate and commercialise exciting new technology ideas and providing them unique opportunities via personalized readiness programmes.
The Energy Idea Pavilion showcases 10 innovative ideas for cleaner fuels. Each innovator will retain their Intellectual Property as our ultimate goal is to create opportunities for economic empowerment for our Youth. We would like to offer the platform every year for Youths in Nigeria and Pan Africa to showcase their innovations.
The programme spans:
A clean growth accelerator programme
The creation of an effective entrepreneur pipeline,
A female founder programme and
An incubator/scale up programme.
The programme aims to also identify, develop and deploy advanced and integrated digital solutions that will support the Nigerian energy sector’s transition to cleaner fuels.

Trade (local, national and international)
- To fund 10 Youths to exhibit at the Pavilion
