NCEEC to partner with IITA on research and energy conservation
Representatives from the National Center for Energy Efficiency and Conservation (NCEEC) visited IITA headquarters on 21 April. The team, consisting of research and technical staff, was led by Dr Olawale Ajibola, Director of NCEEC. NCEEC focuses on research and energy conservation; hence the team visited IITA to identify areas of partnership in line with their mandate.
In a meeting with the NCEEC team and IITA management staff, Michael Abberton, IITA West Africa Hub Director, appreciated the team’s interest and proposal to visit IITA. He introduced the team to the activities and technologies of IITA, emphasizing that IITA is a research Institute that is open to partnering with both government and private institutions.
Relating the purpose of their visit, Dr Ajibola stated that as a research center under the Energy Commission of Nigeria, NCEEC manages and harnesses resources for energy conservation, an area in which IITA also has working experience. “We are here because we are visiting stakeholders to partner and see where we can work together on resources and energy conservation,” he said.
