Andy "An Assessment of the Prospects of Introducing Solar Energy in the UNEC Energy Mix" Published in International Journal of Trend in Scientific Research and Development (ijtsrd), ISSN: 2456-6470, Volume-5 | Issue-2, February 2021, pp.1017-1021, URL: https://www.ijtsrd.com/papers/ijtsrd38616.pdf

With the continued annual increase in the number of students and staff within the University of Nigeria Enugu Campus (UNEC), the demand on energy has continued to rise. There is need for an efficient and regular power supple to meet the growing demands in order to ensure proper functioning of the academic environment. The Campus currently receives an average of about 5 hours of electricity from the national grid daily. This is due to the erratic power supple and inherent in the country, making learning conditions stressful, administration more tedious and the living conditions in the students and staff housing difficult. As an alternative the campus relies on fossil fuel powered generators which apart from high cost of maintenance, are grossly inefficient and constitute environmental pollution with the constant release of harmful gases and noise. The study investigated and assess the current state of energy supply within the various zones of the campus, and explored the potentials of introducing an efficient, safe and alternate source of power in the campus energy mix. It evaluates potential of solar energy installations and possible challenges associated with the University of Nigeria, Enugu Campus.
