The Renewable Energy research cluster of Covenant University seeks to engage in progressive research and product development targeted at solving the energy debacle experienced in Africa.

This we hope to bring to bear by:

Undergoing pilot projects to be situated in communities in Nigeria and subsequently other part of Africa;

  • taking part in Renewable Energy Advocacy in Nigeria and Africa by linking up with Key agencies and other strategic partners in the renewable energy landscape in Africa;
  • targeted localised product development;
  • trainings;
  • Short course formulation.
  • Energy and Technology

  • Energy and Environment

  • Energy and Education
