Abstract

The paper examines the impact of energy use on households in Nigeria. Adopting the results of the survey conducted by Ochedi and Taki, (2019) on energy efficiency in the residential neighborhoods of Kogi State, Nigeria, the findings reveal that energy measures, to a greater extent, are not efficient in private households in Nigeria. Also, a lack of awareness and regulatory challenges impede Nigeria's adoption of energy-efficient measures while a lack of confidence in energy savings, as displayed by the respondents’ level of energy efficiency measures, hinders the progress. It is recommended that stakeholders invest in renewable energy sources to build a resilient Nigerian economy, like developed countries
