  • Engr. Kesiena Owebor is a purpose-driven scholar in the field of sustainable energy systems. He holds B.Eng and M.Eng degrees in Mechanical Engineering, from the University of Port Harcourt, where he also bagged an unprecedented CGPA of 5.00 on a scale of 5.00 in his masters studies. Presently, he is at an advanced stage of his doctoral research at the World Bank Africa Centre of Excellence for Oilfield Chemicals Research (ACE-CEFOR), University of Port Harcourt. He lectures Energy and Thermofluid related courses at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Delta State University. His research interest spans through energy modelling and climate actions – renewable energy, clean cooking, fuel cell systems, low-high grade thermal energy conversion technologies, and low emissions technology. He has several publications with reputable journals. He is also a reviewer with the Elsevier's Applied Energy journal. He is very familiar with bottom-up, top-down and hybrid modelling tools such as the Low Emissions Analysis Platform (LEAP) and IMACLIM. He is very good in the use of MATLAB and Engineering Equation Solver (EES). Engr. Kesiena Owebor is a fully registered Mechanical Engineer by the Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN). He is a registered user of Research Gate and LinkedIn. He is a team member of the Nigeria long term energy scenarios/modelling project (Deep Decarbonization Pathway - Nigeria) funded by the French Development Agency. He is also a recipient of the ACE-CEFOR scholarship award.
