Dr. Monyei is currently a research fellow on energy policy and sustainable decarbonization at the University of the West of England, where he works as a researcher and consultant on issues pertaining to sustainable energy systems modeling. Specifical... Read More about Repurposing electricity access research for the global south: A tale of many disconnects.

Response to Todd, De Groot, Mose, McCauley and Heffron's critique of "Examining energy sufficiency and energy mobility in the global south through the energy justice framework" (2019)
Journal Article
Monyei, C. G., Jenkins, K., Monyei, C., Aholu, O., Akpeji, K., Oladeji, O., & Viriri, S. (2019). Response to Todd, De Groot, Mose, McCauley and Heffron's critique of "Examining energy sufficiency and energy mobility in the global south through the energy justice framework". Energy Policy, 133, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.enpol.2019.110917

We thank Todd et al. (2019) for providing their thoughts on Monyei et al. (2018) and for opening a debate around the notion of "energy bullying". However, as we argue in this correspondence, Todd et al. (2019) have arguably adopted an unbalanced appr...

Development of an IoT-based big data platform for day-ahead prediction of building heating and cooling demands (2019)
Journal Article
Luo, X. J., Oyedele, L. O., Ajayi, A. O., Monyei, C. G., Akinade, O. O., & Akanbi, L. A. (2019). Development of an IoT-based big data platform for day-ahead prediction of building heating and cooling demands. Advanced Engineering Informatics, 41, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.aei.2019.100926

© 2019 Elsevier Ltd The emerging technologies of the Internet of Things (IoT) and big data can be utilised to derive knowledge and support applications for energy-efficient buildings. Effective prediction of heating and cooling demands is fundamental... Read More about Development of an IoT-based big data platform for day-ahead prediction of building heating and cooling demands.

Benchmarks for energy access: Policy vagueness and incoherence as barriers to sustainable electrification of the global south (2019)
Journal Article
Monyei, C. G., Oyedele, L. O., Akinade, O. O., Ajayi, A. O., & Luo, X. J. (2019). Benchmarks for energy access: Policy vagueness and incoherence as barriers to sustainable electrification of the global south. Energy Research and Social Science, 54, 113-116. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.erss.2019.04.005

© 2019 The unavailability of tangible policy benchmarks continues to mitigate against sustainable electrification in the global south. Furthermore, incoherent policy benchmarks as to what should constitute clean energy allow for varying interpretatio...

Justice, poverty, and electricity decarbonization (2019)
Journal Article
Monyei, C. G., Sovacool, B. K., Brown, M. A., Jenkins, K. E. H., Viriri, S., & Li, Y. (2019). Justice, poverty, and electricity decarbonization. Electricity Journal, 32(1), 47-51. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.tej.2019.01.005

Drawing from examples in Germany, California, and Australia, we show that large scale integration of renewable energy in existing electricity grids does not necessarily lead to cheaper electricity, the strengthening of energy security, or the enhance...
