Teaching and Research Assistant, Regional Centre for Energy and Environmental Sustainability (RCEES)
Shelton Sabasi holds a B.Tech. (Hons) degree in Fuels and Energy Engineering and an M.Sc. in Renewable Energy Engineering. He is currently pursuing a doctorate degree in Sustainable Energy Management, focusing his Ph.D. thesis on the grid integration of Variable Renewable Energy (VRE) and the impact of variability on power system flexibility. At present, Shelton works as a Teaching and Research Assistant at the Regional Centre for Energy and Environmental Sustainability (RCEES), which is one of the African Centers of Excellence funded by the World Bank in Ghana. He has been involved in several research projects with the Centre, primarily centered around assessing pathways for the country to achieve Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) number 7. These projects include energy efficiency, renewable energy generation and grid integration, as well as the assessment of mini-grid development. In addition to this, he has gained previous experience working with Ghana's Transmission Operator, providing him with a deep understanding of power system operations. He once worked as a Technical Sales Engineer, specializing in the design and modeling of solar PV systems. Furthermore, he has actively participated in various energy modeling platforms, particularly the Energy Modelling Platform for Africa. During the fellowship, Shelton intends to utilize data science and machine learning techniques to optimize battery sizing for enhancing power system flexibility. He is passionate about applying data science in energy systems to drive sustainable development.
