Norbert Edomah

Mr Edomah is an interdisciplinary energy systems engineer with a keen interest in how people respond to (and influence) changes in energy infrastructure systems. His area of expertise is in Energy research and Sustainability (with particular interest in energy demand and supply systems, energy transitions, energy policy and governance, energy security and economics, and power quality). His PhD in Sustainable Energy Systems & Public Policy from the Global Sustainability Institute, Anglia Ruskin University, focused on investigating the influences underlying past changes in energy supply infrastructure in Nigeria. Prior to joining the Pan-Atlantic University in 2015, he has worked in industry for over 10 years with leading organizations, such as Tetra Pak and Schneider Electric. He is currently an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy UK, and a registered Chartered Engineer with the Engineering Council UK. He is a member of the Sustainability Transitions Research Network (STRN), a network of global researchers involved in sustainability transitions research around food, water, energy and transport systems.

At PAU, Mr Edomah currently leads courses on: Research Methods; Production Management & Operations Research; Business Mathematics; and Introduction to Mathematical Methods. He has published several research papers on energy systems and policy, and he is a reviewer for several academic journals including: Energy Reports (Elsevier); Environmental Policy and Governance (Wiley); IEEE Potentials; and Renewable & Sustainable Energy Reviews (Elsevier). He holds membership of some professional bodies and think-tanks, while also being active in energy related consultancy
