Hydropower, Wind Turbine, Biogas Plant & Solar Energy Technologies

About the book:

The objectives of the study are to: determine solar energy, biomass based fuels, small hydropower schemes and wind energy sources that can be used to replace the regular fossil based fuels. An experimental model was established using the Bayesian decision model to ascertain the econometrics of the said energy technologies & applications for the communities in Ogor Kingdom, southern region, Nigeria. The model formulated was gotten from the data derived from Bill of Engineering Measurement and Evaluation on net benefits to the community persons after the projects were designed & constructed for the new applications on power source characterization in Ogor kingdom. The result of the model versus prototype was optimal at 100%.The work is recommended for implementation to: the government, four communities of Ogor Kingdom and all stakeholders as to fund the said alternative new sources of energy technologies and applications to combat the energy crises in the state and enhance economic growth in the region. The contribution to knowledge is in the use of new inventory models to get the econometrics of renewable sources of energy thereby eliminating global warming & climate change crises.

Consequently, the above background brought about his activity mindedness with a strong religious belief in the God Almighty, which led to his disciplinary life style. The theories that guide his life style had been the “Holy Bible. Thus, at the point of entry into secondary school, his father took him to Comprehensive Secondary School, Nawfia, (a technical school) where all trades and sciences are taught and he passed the entrance examinations and was admitted as a student.

He was found to be a priesthood material that was why his father always asked him if he would want to be ordained a Priest in which he always answered “No”. The following subjects/courses were taught at the said secondary school and he took the courses during the West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) after completion of training and practice at the school in 1985: Woodwork, Metalwork Carpentry, Mechanical Engineering & Building Drawing/Technical Drawing, Fine and Applied Arts, Block/Bricklaying, Mathematics, Physics, English Language, History, Religious Knowledge, Commerce, Economics, Short hand, Accounting etc. He lived in the school boarding House and was elected Treasurer of Young Catholic Students with great trust to keep the organizations fund as a student.

During the annual Inter – house Athletic competition, he received awards for gaining first position in 5000 and 1,500 meters marathon races both in 1985 at the school. At the zonal Athletic competition, he also received another award for gaining first position in 5500 meters marathon race in the same 1985 at Njikoka zone, Anambra State, South Eastern region, Nigeria. The said first positions were possible due to the said disciplinary lifestyle from childhood, which was an inheritance from his parents as well as from the Almighty God.

He studied Building Technology and graduated as the best Student in 1991 with Upper Credit at the Institute of Management &Technology. He was a Charismatic student up till date. Thereafter, he did his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) at Lokoja, in Kogi State, Nigeria where he was posted to and he served at Directorate of Foods, Roads and Rural Infrastructures (DFRRI) from 1991 to1992. In 1992 he was employed by Vivid Construction Company Ltd as a Project Engineer. He resigned on 1St August 1995 and opened a construction and consultancy company, Leeworks International Limited, as the Principal Constant. Thereafter, he was appointed in 1996 by the Onitsha Catholic Archdiocese, Nigeria as a Resident Engineer to supervise Pedro-chi and Company Limited, an Italian company in Nigeria, engaged on the job of construction of  Church Building Complex worth of ₦600million from 1996 to 2007. So from 1996 when the project started to 2007 when it was completed, he acquired five different degrees in addition to the earlier OND and HND in Building Technology including: (B.Sc) degree in Building, (PGDE) in Statistics/Mathematics, (PGD) in Civil Engineering, (M.Eng) degree in Civil Engineering (Water Resources Engineering), and (Ph.D) degree in Civil Engineering (Water Resources Engineering) with distinctions. These were possible due to his time management skills, emotional, physical, and moral stability, disciplinary lifestyle and ability to study independently.

From the foregoing, his mentor was late Professor Ojiako G.U. who in 2006 made a request for Luke to join him at Anambra State University as a Lecturer. That he is gifted, talented and charmed in terms of: intellectual capacity, research and creative ability, analytical thinking, work ethics, organizing and expression of ideas, and a drive or motivation for surprises in any assignment given to him. These skills of Luke including presentation and communication of ideas are the characteristics that led to his outstanding Ph.D research work and the recipient of an international award as the world best poster Presenter in 2012 from the President, Glen Diagger of International Water Association London, out of a total of 387 presenters in a competition held during their World Water Congress & Exhibition, at Bussan, Korea from 16th to 21st September 2012. At the said Anambra State University Luke joined him on 28th February 2006 as an Assistant Lecturer in research, teaching and supervision of undergraduate and graduate students, and rose to the rank of a full Professor on 1st October 2019. In recognition of his research skills from 2012 to 2022 on “Renewable Energy” as the most prominent researcher, the Global Energy Association awarded to him an honorary diploma, during the Global Energy Week forum on 13th October 2022, at Moscow, Russia for his outstanding contributions to the development of energy in the region. See details:, and

He was appointed Head, Department of Civil Engineering in 2008/2009, 2018/2019 and 2019/2020 academic sessions. In 2020/2021, 2021/2022 and 2022/2023 academic sessions, he was also appointed the Dean, Faculty of Engineering of the said University, now COOU. As the Dean of Faculty of Engineering, his teaching profession is such that he accepted as a vocation from God to mentor this generation and generations to come under the supervision of the God Almighty, whose Grace is with him in abundance. Based on his background, he discovered that the only thing that gives him joy is to teach someone using his life story described above as a case study for mentorship. As he carries out the mentorship work, he always gives testimonies through the God Almighty as his superior and supervisor who strengthen him such that his mentorship work is a call from Him.  Therefore, he carries out these skills as the work of God who sent him “Opus Dei”. His teaching philosophies revolve around a preacher and his audience. He professes that the larger the audience in diversity, equity and inclusion, the better for him as a preacher of good news. He exhibits discipline, humility, gentility, self expression, communication and dramatization of ideas, preparatory notes, and meditations with prayers, studies, researches etc before appearing to his audience to deliver the lessons already planned.

In conclusion, Professor Luke Eme’s teaching interests, philosophies and lifestyles were inherited from God and his parents who were both teachers of the highest reputation. His teaching experiences were also drawn from his mentors as: late Professor Ojiako G.U., who had his B.Sc, M.Eng, Ph.D in Water Resources Engineering from University of New Castle and was honoured with an international award from India for his outstanding research contributions and also late Professor Anyata B. U. of Cornell University and his many other teachers. He is married with children since 2001 and he is a member and the physician, Queen of Peace Sub Council, Knights of Saint Mulumba, Nigeria since 2008.
