Chibuzor Ndubisi is a graduate of Mechanical Engineering from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka. His interests focus on technological and economic trends in renewable energy and sustainable development, both of which he believes are crucial for Africa’s renaissance. He is working towards studying for a PhD in Mechanical Engineering, with a focus on renewable energy generation, after which he hopes to transition into the industry to drive change through innovation.
As an ardent believer in the abundance of Africa’s resources, Chibuzor wants to see more than 60% of the continent’s energy needs satisfied by renewables within the next decade. However, with a clear understanding of Africa’s relatively nascent energy sector and the spate of crises that plague the region, he expects that this sector would record a 30% renewable share by 2030. In his opinion, the African energy sector could reach its full potential by providing ample support for continent-specific innovations and businesses; ensuring synergy between the technological, business, and policy angles; and embracing the perspectives of Africa’s young energy enthusiasts.
Chibuzor is both excited and grateful to be involved with the YES! program. The initiative intersects significantly with his professional aspirations, and the knowledge, skills, and networks gained from YES! would better equip him for his career journey. He hopes to bring a unique voice to the Summit, build meaningful and lasting relationships, and become a worthy ambassador for the YES! community.
