The core activity of the Centre is Research and Development to which our human and physical resources are majorly devoted to. The research activities are structured into the following thematic groups and include: 

Solar Energy Conversion

The solar Photovoltaic Energy conversion group is an interdisciplinary research group with common interest. The interest of the group is the study, development and deployment of solar energy technologies through research and development in the area of First, Second and Third generation solar cell. Currently, the group is working on development of solar cell (Dye Sensitized Solar Cell) using organic plant leaf extract to sensitize a working electrode and fabricate solar cells. In addition to that, investigation of the challenges of integrating power generated from solar system is on-going. The group welcomes research collaboration from International organisations, and institutions within and outside Nigeria.

The Wind Energy conversion group is an interdisciplinary research group with members drawn from diverse engineering disciplines which include; Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and other related fields. The focus of the group is the study, development and deployment of wind energy technologies through coordinated research and development activities. Currently, the group is working on wind energy integration for development of a charging station for solar-powered electric vehicles pilot study scheme at University of Lagos. The research group is comprised of qualified researchers with relevant knowledge and experience in wind Energy research. Members of the group are pooled from both the Energy Research Centre and the University community. The group welcomes research collaboration from International organisations, and institutions within and outside Nigeria.

Wind Energy Conversion

Biomass Energy Conversion

Biomass Energy is a renewable source of energy derived from organic materials (plants and animals).  One of the significant solid wastes from residential and commercial buildings is the food waste. Experimental Characterization of the feedstock’s thermochemical properties, using the combination of proximate and ultimate analyses will help yield valid research outcomes. The Biomass Energy Conversion Group therefore seeks to continually explore efficient ways through which biomass could be used to produce electricity, quality heat and liquid fuel. The research group is comprised of qualified researchers with relevant background and vast experience in this research area and members are pooled from both the Energy Research Centre and the University community. To get involved with the activities of the Biomass Energy Research Group, or find out more information about Biomass Energy Conversion, kindly send a mail to [email protected]

Embedded electric vehicle software is necessary for an electric car to function. In Battery Electric vehicles, software replaces the complex mechanical systems that internal combustion engines (ICES) have. The Software design group among other activities carries out studies on the battery management and control system of Electric Vehicles.

Software Systems Design for Electric Vehicles 

Electric Vehicles Component Systems Design 

The EVs Component Systems Design Group is an interdisciplinary research group with common interest. The interest of the group is to understudy the design of Electric Vehicles with respect to the following:

  • Vehicle Designs that specifies; Capacity, Aerodynamics and operational requirements
  • Review of the Vehicle aerodynamics and improvement of the body shape to suite local conditions and purposes
  • Limits/range of EVs operational viability in line with the capacity. 

The group welcomes research collaboration from institutions within and outside Nigeria as well as International organisations.

The Socio-Economic Adaptability and Logistics Research Group is saddled with the responsibility to examine the main issues around the success of deploying Efficient Transport Systems in Nigeria such as business environment, law, policy and regulations as well as vehicle standardization. Also, to develop models to evaluate the socio-economic implications, adaptability, and logistics of an electrified transportation system in Nigeria. The group welcomes research collaboration from researchers, and institutions within and outside Nigeria. For more information about the group’s activities, kindly send a mail to [email protected]
