Abstract: The use of renewable energy and a lesser reliance on fossil fuels in Nigeria which is in line with the United Nations Paris Agreement will help to reduce the excessive emission of green house gases which is a major cause of global warming and climate change. Excessive emission of greenhouse gases has been discovered to affect the health of individuals, communities and institutions in Nigeria adversely. This study identified that the use of renewable energy which is one of the climate change mitigation strategies will help to enhance good health and well being, increase environmental sustainability and also boost sustainable economic growth in Nigeria. It further identified solar energy as the most promising of the renewable energy sources in view of its apparent limitless potential. This study further highlighted case studies of some renewable energy infrastructure projects in Nigeria. It concluded with the call for more intensive research on the use of renewable energy infrastructure projects as a veritable tool for enhancing climate resilience in Nigeria.
