AFFORDABLE AND CLEAN ENERGY -Dr Babatunde Onasanya, University of Ibadan

Moderator: Great evening everyone! It’s my pleasure to invite Dr Onasanya.
Dr Babatunde Onasanya was born in Abeokuta, Ogun state and attended primary, secondary and college of education there too. He studied Mathematics\physics Education from university of Ibadan and holds a Master and PhD in mathematics from same university. He is a lecturer at the department of Mathematics, UI. He also works for the Center for Petroleum, Energy Economics and Law.

You're most welcome to the platform of EARnpreneurs where noble Deaf Entrepreneurs meet. You have the floor sir.

Abiola Adenuga: Glad to hear from you Sir

Dr Babatunde Onasanya: Hi Biola!
It's so good to hear from you too after a long time.
Has anyone come across the SD goals? The popular united nation's SDG agenda?
It is all about making life more enjoyable for everyone on earth. It is a global agenda anyway.

Goal 1: No Poverty
To simply put, poverty is the lack of necessary means to meet basic need. It has different dimensions though. It could be economic or social. If poverty is to be eradicated, indeed, entrepreneurial is the way to go.

Goal 2: Zero Hunger
It is obvious that this is connected to the first goal. If people are not poor, they definitely will be able to afford food.

Or don't you think so?

Goal 3: Good Health and Well-being for people
As entrepreneurs, if you are providing service such as fabrication or installation of machines, you must be conscious that it does not impact negatively on health.

Goal 4: Quality Education. 
I'm with you Biola. Do you have something to say? I just want to quickly review up to 6 and 8 then concentrate on 7.

Tony Nwokolo: πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘Œ

Dr Babatunde Onasanya: On quality education, it is desired that people won't just access education but quality one. Hi Tony!

Abiola Adenuga: No Sir. Could you please say something on inclusive education?

Dr Babatunde Onasanya: 
Goal 5: Gender Equality
Goal 6: Clean Water and Sanitation (You see that this also relates to health); 
Goal 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth

Abiola Adenuga: The one in Lagos is like window dressing

Dr Babatunde Onasanya: Yes! The access to quality education is supposed to be inclusive and equitable. It means that all students are welcome to learn and should be supported by their schools to participate in different aspects of school life.


Abiola Adenuga: Thank you Sir

Dr Babatunde Onasanya: By 2030, it is hoped that people will be able to access affordable and reliable energy. Right now, there is a mix of renewable energy with the one we generate from other means. There are many ways to getting clean energy. The government alone cannot do this.You are welcome Biola. This gives opportunities to entrepreneurs to break even. People can now use solar-powered devices or generate electricity for basic home and/business appliances via inverter. All these are very clean.I want to pause for some feedbacks!!!
Tony Nwokolo: πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Dr Babatunde Onasanya: Thank you Tony! Are there others with us?

Tony Nwokolo: Is Nigeria ripe for nuclear energy now? And how clean is it? After the Japanese nuclear reactor accident few years ago. Chernobyl and 3-mile Island experience

Dr Babatunde Onasanya: I'm afraid I have to be frank that Nigeria is not! I visited one of our refineries and saw all sort of leakages. We make so much from oil and gas yet could not maintain its plant. Imagine if it was nuclear leakage!

Tony Nwokolo: πŸ€₯πŸ€₯πŸ€₯πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„

Dr Babatunde Onasanya: Truly, for any nation that can manage the nuclear reactor, it is clean and reliable!

Tony Nwokolo: πŸ‘πŸ‘

Dr Babatunde Onasanya: I think the use of solar electricity generator is good for Nigeria.Thank you Tony!

Tony Nwokolo: πŸ‘
Dr Babatunde Onasanya: If you want to go into entrepreneurial side of this, you could begin by collaborating with existing and successful entrepreneurs. How do I mean? You reach an agreement to source for project to execute. They bill and execute it. But the agreement should also include WHAT PERCENTAGE OF THE PROFIT IS MINE? During execution of projects, be available to learn and gain experience. With time, you could have so much experience to stand on your own.
Dr Babatunde Onasanya: Lagos State had a plan to do training on this aspect of entrepreneur.If you have a good background in Electrical or Electronic Engineering, you might just need some months of training. Let's see if there are some questions before we close!!! I will send you the link where you can register once it is opened for registration.

Dr Babatunde Onasanya: πŸ‘That is the link. A friend of mine is involved. I hope you learned something. Thank you.

Tony Nwokolo: πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Moderator: Wow! Many thanks Doc. We learnt a lot. We appreciate you for the time & knowledge shared with us tonight πŸ‘
Moderator: Sir,  how affordable are these options?

Abiola Adenuga: Today's seminar was quite impressive.Thank you Sir

Moderator: Lagos state Employability Trust Fund.

Dr Babatunde Onasanya: Thank you.

Moderator: How affordable sir are these alternatives?

Dr Babatunde Onasanya: My great pleasure.
Ganiyat Onafeko: It is very unfortunate that Nigeria couldn't maintain her refinery and these people in charge didn't even think about the health hazard of the leakage ehn!
Ganiyat Onafeko: Thanks so much for the beautiful lecture sir
Ganiyat Onafeko: Am interested in knowing more about inverter how it works, durablity, affordability etc
Moderator: πŸ‘
Moderator: Please keep the questions coming.

Dr Onasanya will take them one after the other possibly tomorrow.
Moderator: Thanks everyone for your participation tonight.

Sweet dreams
Tony Nwokolo: Same here. πŸ‘πŸ‘
Tony Nwokolo: We are tired of fuel generators n it's pollution wahala.  We need cleaner, better, more efficient, affordable, durable alternatives
Tony Nwokolo: It's a pity that We are too lazy to tap out abundant sunlight efficiently as a nation, to generate efficient power for the citizens 24/7.
Tony Nwokolo: Our
Tony Nwokolo: And affordable too
+234 809 582 8123: πŸ‘ŒπŸ½ Valid points here Sir...let’s find ways to inspire the younger ones to embrace cutting edge technology and usage of STEM In bridging this wide gap too

Dr Babatunde Onasanya: Good morning! I will attend to all this.
Moderator: πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
Moderator: Great morning everyone. Wish you a very prosperous day
+234 809 582 8123: Ameeeeen
Ahmed Adeleye: Big amen

Dr Babatunde Onasanya: If all cautions are taken care of, inverter is a very durable, noiseless and green way of generating electricity. If there is an average daily supply of electricity from the national grid for 7 hours, it is good enough. It converts the DC in the batteries to AC. If the case is otherwise, you need solar panels to charge the batteries.
There are small inverters with small batteries that can power low energy consuming bulbs, charge your phones, laptops etc.
STEM, I guess you mean Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Of course! That is the hope of the future.

Tony Nwokolo: πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
Tony Nwokolo: How affordable and durable, easy to maintain? Efficient?
+234 803 082 0991: Great lecture.  

Please how to identify long lasting deep battery?
Some said Sunking is good! How true?

Dr Babatunde Onasanya: Generally, buy batteries from authorized dealers. Besides, good batteries have about 1year warranty.
