Building Energy Efficiency Code - FMPWH-NESP 2017

BEE Code

The National Building Energy Efficiency Code provides architects, builders, engineers and other key professionals in the building construction industry with minimum energy requirements for new residential and office buildings in Nigeria. The code consists inter alia of the following elements; minimum energy efficiency requirements and verification methods, calculation methods and tools, building energy label and energy efficiency incentives, control and enforcement, qualification of experts and review and adaptation. The code focuses on low-cost minimum energy efficiency requirements and addresses parts of the building such as the building envelope, window to wall ratio, roof insulation, energy efficient lighting and air conditioning. It was launched in August 2017. Download


Building Energy Efficiency Technical Study - FMPWH-NESP 2017

BEE Technical StudyThe Technical Study provides a description of a set of minimum energy efficiency requirements for Nigeria and the process of identifying these requirements. The minimum energy requirements captured in this document have been used to develop the National Building Energy Efficiency Code (BEEC). Also contained in the Technical Study are the processes of developing a labelling and incentive scheme, procedures for control and enforcement of the requirements, recommendations on calculation methods and tools for the prescriptive and performance routes and compliance with the code. The study was launched alongside the BEEC in August 2017.


Building Energy Efficiency Guideline - FMPWH-NESP 2016


The Building Energy Efficiency Guideline provides useful information to professionals in the building sectorn key factors to consider when implementing energy efficiency measures in Nigerian buildings. These include the architectural design of the building, materials used for construction, equipment used in the building, regional hazards common in Nigeria, and tools for estimating energy efficiency indicators. It was released by the FMPWH in June 2016. Download






Energy Efficiency building design review - GIZ NESP 2017

Group Development Company (GDC), a Nigerian real estate company, is cooperating with the Nigerian Energy Support Programme (NESP) on assessing the feasibility of energy efficient buildings. NESP supported GDC in reviewing building designs for adherance to the principles of integrated building design. Design aspects include the identification of good location, the selection of appropriate materials and energy sources and the optimisation of HVAC and lighting equipment – compliant with the Nigerian Building Energy Efficiency Guideline. This brief report presents findings from four case studies. Download



Energy efficiency in buildings - GIZ NESP 2014

This study seeks to establish a baseline for energy efficiency in the building sector. Apart form reviewing framework conditions, policies and regulation, it looks at financing options, identifies important actors and presents market barriers and challenges. With the aim of shaping promotion of energy efficiency under NESP, the report also presents business cases of bioclimatic architecture for different climatic zones. Download




Energy efficiency in manufacturing – Scoping study - GIZ NESP 2014

This study aims to shed light into the hitherto unknown current situation of energy efficiency in Nigeria’s manufacturing industry. It reviews current energy consumption across different sub-sectors, identifies opportunities for interventions and maps actors shaping policies on energy efficiency. Download
