Fossil fuel depletion, price volatility, global warming, greenhouse gas emissions, air pollution, and detrimental health consequences are all characteristics of Nigeria’s traditional energy sources, particularly the burning of biomass and fossil fuels. This proposed study intends to critically analyze the health impacts of biomass burning in homes with an emphasis on the health of women and girls who are primarily responsible for gathering firewood and cooking in the home. A study evaluated many of the potentials of solar energy photovoltaic in order to reduce the personal risks that women face from predatory males and other animals when they leave their homes to collect wood, as well as the physical effects of carrying loads of several kilograms over several kilometers, which can result in compression injuries to the neck, back, and hips. All of these issues would be greatly diminished by the widespread adoption of renewable energy. It included a summary of the several renewable energy sources, the implications of climate change, and the health effects of energy sources.
