Here’s what you should know about us…

Lumen Energy Consultancy helps private and commercial entities run their activities in a cost-efficient and productive way by integrating top quality renewable energy solutions to their existing power supply. We collaborate with local and international partners to ensure that projects are realized with both high quality technologies and positive economic value.

Extending the frontiers of energy in Africa

Our Motivation

LUMEN was founded on a drive to provide solutions to the electricity supply problems plaguing Nigeria and other Sub-Saharan African countries. The vastly inadequate infrastructure has kept nearly every sector of the economy dependent on generator sets for power. Businesses for example, spend a significant portion of their operating capital on fueling and maintaining diesel generators which are noisy and pollute the environment. Worse still, operations are often crippled by recurring episodes of fuel scarcity. In an era where technologies that harness the free energy from nature are rapidly growing, the status quo can certainly be changed. At LUMEN, we see opportunities to remove barriers that limit access to renewable energy resources.

Harnessing the power of nature…

Solar and wind energy technologies can be built to be modular, scalable and affordable. We believe that the fast adoption of such decentralized renewable power generation would accelerate industrial development and increase overall welfare of the populace.

Mission

To solve power supply challenges with world-class sustainable energy technologies.

Vision

To be the trusted technical partner for the realization of commercial-scale renewable energy projects in the region.

Values

  • Placing the needs of customers first

  • Trust, transparency and open communication

  • Promoting the productive use of green energy

Adedoyin Adebodun Adeleke

Business Development Manager

Adedoyin Adeleke is a sustainable energy researcher and currently pursues a doctoral degree under the UNESCO Chair in Energy for Sustainable Development at the Department of Energy, Politecnico di Milano, Milan, Italy with a scholarship from the Italian Government.

Adedoyin holds a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, and a multidisciplinary master’s degree in Energy Studies from Nigeria’s Premier University, University of Ibadan, Ibadan, both in Nigeria. His interest in using theoretical knowledge to impact social and economic development led him to co-invent a 10-seconds chicken de-feathering machine during his undergraduate studies. As his master’s dissertation, he researched on the “Sustainability of Solar Mini-Grids in Nigeria” profiles factors responsible for failure and success of solar mini-grids in Nigeria.

He was recently named by Renewable Energy World in its Inaugural 40 Under 40 List of Changemakers in the global solar energy industry.
