Abstract

This study investigates the process of designing and setting-up a new market for solar energy in Nigeria and its expected sustainable values, such as low costs for end-users and positive climate change impact. Empirics come from a case-study conducted in Nigeria. Taking inspiration from the work of Deleuze and Guattari, we analyse the ways in which each key component of the new market form an assemblage; and how each assemblage has potentials to influence performance metrics of the new market. Further, we examine how using solar energy in households improves sustainability for climate change at macro organisational level. Findings show factors that enable or hinder public authorities and market actors from institutionalising the solar energy market throughout the whole country and what can be done to reach there.
