Norbert Edomah is a Senior Lecturer at the School of Science and Technology, Pan-Atlantic University Lagos, Nigeria. His research interests include: industrial energy efficiency and cleaner production; influences underlying changes in energy supply infrastructure; politics of energy infrastructure supply; public policy to improve energy security; and planning and organization of the electricity markets in developing African countries. He is keen on understanding how people respond to (and influence) changes in energy infrastructure systems.
