1. The alternative power expo(www.alternativepowerexhibition.com)in Lagos is an annual event where different alternative power products are displayed for the populace to see and buy.from the word alternative,these are power products that can generate power from sources without the government power,infact these sources of power are renewable in nature meaning they are easily replaceable on their own like sun,water,wind,biomass ,etc.
2. The exhibition is a brain child of Folub Eletrik Servz,(www.folubelerik.com)an electromechanical and renewable energy company in Lagos.the idea came as a way of bringing to the general public the avenue to see,buy and put thier trust in the renewable power source,more importantly to increase the awareness on environmentally friendly products /services and help Nigerians to begin to be watchfully of their power generation habits with fossil fuel and it's implications.the last 6 years have witness a collaboration with Lagos television to bring it to the populace.
3. This year theme is 'Alternative power sources: private sector opportunities' and why we have this is to let the private sectors understand that there are many benefits in the sector like the economic,environment and job creation benefit that abound in the sector.
