In the early eighties, experts in their fields gathered in Nigeria to explore solar energy alternatives to relieve the nation's fragile electrical grid . That gave birth to the Sokoto Energy Research Centre (SERC) governmental organization in 1982. The center commenced with a vision to mitigate environmental damage and alleviate poverty, supplement the inadequate power supply to the nation, and reduce the dependence on the then National Electric Power Authority (NEPA), now the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN).

While they focus on photovoltaic electrical development, the center also studies bio-mass stoves, as well as, promote the development, manufacturing, and use of solar cookers.
