About Energhx Research Group

Energhx™ is a green energy consulting firm, started as Energhx Consulting in January 2008; and incorporated in the Province of Ontario on the 6th of July 2009. Partnership includes energy project and business development professionals, with unalloyed passion for developing solution to problems arising from mismanagement of energy resources. Although the formation of the consortium precede the Green Energy and Economy Act of the Province of Ontario, the mission and visions of its first directors address the complete solution prescribed in the Act. This includes the generation and integration of electricity through renewable energy sources; and the conservation of available energy supply.

As a consortium of professional engineers and energy market analysts, Energhx™ engages direct sourcing of energy commodities and appliances to provide hybrid power and heat generation solution and energy efficiency services to independent users of energy systems. We provide quality-proven resources for effective energy project management; and online membership access to resources from our affiliate organizations, including U.S Green Building Council, Canada Green Building Council, American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Association of Professional Engineers of Ontario, Ontario Society of Professional Engineers, Canadian Solar Industries Association, and Canadian Wind Energy Association.

Whether you are looking for energy management and/or hybrid power generation services; or you are looking for opportunity to enhance your energy service business, Energhx™ looks forward to serving you. You can represent Energhx™ by exploring our Green Energy Associate Program option; or contact us for consultancy services.

Emmanuel O.B. Ogedengbe has a sustained focus on training to become an expert in the field of Mechanical Engineering, which started with a strong motivation to pursue a diploma in Mechanical Engineering from Yaba College of Technology, Yaba, Lagos, Nigeria in the year 1990. After his undergraduate studies from Obafemi Awolowo University, his dedication to training was combined with a devotion to teaching assistantship for undergraduate courses in three universities, starting from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Nigeria from 2001 to 2002; University of Manitoba from 2003 to 2005; and the University of Ontario Institute of Technology from 2005 to 2007. Therefore, towards the end of his Ph.D. training at the University of Manitoba, he had no doubt in the choice to continue the pursuit of this passion with a career in the academics. Coupled with the need to combine experiences in industrial consultancy with teaching, he has been involved in the training of engineers-in-training after his successful stunt at CanmetENERGY Technology Centre between 2008 to 2011.

Due to exposure to the fundamentals of the design of energy systems during the period of his postdoctoral training at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology and CanmetENERGY Technology Centre between 2005 and 2008, Emmanuel developed an interest in the pursuits of a specialization in the field of thermal engineering & energy. His consultancy services to both residential and commercial clients in the Province of Ontario, between 2008 and 2011, involved the offering of demand side monitoring services, based on deregulated supply of electricity and natural gas, energy market analysis and development of MicroFIT proposal for the solar-wind projects. And within the Nigerian energy market, Emmanuel started the Energhx Research Group at the University of Lagos which is presently facilitating workshops and training on Energy Audit & Management for commercial and industrial energy stakeholders.

Emmanuel is a professional engineer, registered with Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO) and the Council for the Regulation of Engineers in Nigeria (COREN). With his current involvement in industrial presentations on the need for demand side monitoring and the implementation of the new ISO 50001 Energy Management System, there has been a developing interest in this standard certification and industrial efficiency in Nigeria.
