Usability Assessment and Statistical Analysis of Library Resources in Energy Research Centre Library, University of Nigeria Nsukka

Usability Assessment and Statistical Analysis of Library Resources in Energy Research Centre Library, University of Nigeria Nsukka

Abstract: "This paper reports the findings of a statistical assessment of the use of library and information resources in NCERD Library, University of Nigeria Nsukka. The periods studied are from 2005 to 2012. Library resources available were identified to include books, theses, dissertations & projects (TDPs), journals, conference proceedings and newspapers. Quantitative research design was used because the study involved statistical analysis of records of the library resources in order to ascertain their use by NCERD staff and students. Data was collected by observational technique and recorded documents. Five Research Questions and one Hypothesis were formulated to guide the study. Researchers aim to find whether the use of library resources is independent of the type of library resources available or not. The paper also tends to discover whether the resources are adequately utilized or not"

Solar Powered Seawater Desalination: A Potential Solution to  Ever  Increasing Water Demand and Conflicts Among Local Communities

Solar Powered Seawater Desalination: A Potential Solution to Ever Increasing Water Demand and Conflicts Among Local Communities

"Water is essential for all socio-economic development and for maintaining healthy ecosystems. As population increases and development calls for increased allocations of groundwater and surface water for domestic, agricultural and industrial sectors, the pressure on water resources intensifies, leading to tensions, conflicts among users, and excessive pressure on the environment. The increasing stress on freshwater resources brought about by ever rising demand and profligate use, as well as by growing pollution worldwide, is of serious concern."

Development and Testing of a Prototype, Parabolic Trough  Solar  Collector for Steam Generation at Nsukka, South East Nigeria.

Development and Testing of a Prototype, Parabolic Trough Solar Collector for Steam Generation at Nsukka, South East Nigeria.

Abstract: "The design and construction of a prototype parabolic trough for steam generation was carried out in Nsukka South-East Nigeria. The system was tested for the period of July to October 2014.This was done to explore the possibility of using solar thermal energy produced steam for processing of agricultural produce. The maximum efficiency obtained from the experimental result was 44.51% at ambient temperature of 280C and outlet temperature of 102 ºC. The maximum temperature produced by the system during the testing period was 110°C. The system was fabricated using locally available materials, which accounts for its relatively low performance. A repeat of the study with a stainless steel reflector or with an electro polished aluminium surface as reflector could improve the recorded efficiencies."

Overview of the Revised Draft Renewable Energy Master Plan (Remp)

Overview of the Revised Draft Renewable Energy Master Plan (Remp)

"Nigeria has envisioned to grow its economy at a rate of 11% - 13% so that it can be reckoned within the 20 largest economies in the world by 2020. Energy demand and supply studies by the Energy Commission of Nigeria, taking into consideration the economic vision, demography, available energy resources and modern developmental path, using MAED and MESSAGE energy planning models of IAEA has indicated that huge amount of energy in the form of electricity, fuels and heat would be required to meet this vision..."

Enhancing Renewable Energy Access for Sustainable Socio-Economic Development in Subsaharan Africa

Enhancing Renewable Energy Access for Sustainable Socio-Economic Development in Subsaharan Africa

"Energy is a basic necessity for human activity, economic and social development. The productivity and overall performance of sub-Saharan African economies is being hampered by the state of the Energy Sector. Measures to overcome this problem will require the attention of Governments, the international lending agencies, nongovernmental organizations and the various stakeholders. The continent is endowed with RE sources from which modern energy can be produced."
