Design of photovoltaic solar plants: the MED-SOLAR project organises a training course in Lebanon

The MED-SOLAR project is holding a training course on 7th and 8th of September 2015 in the field of photovoltaic solar plants in Beirut, Lebanon.

The course is dedicated to installers, local SMEs and technical students and will focus on hybrid power installations and the construction, operation, monitoring and maintenance of photovoltaic plants.

On day 2 of the training, participants will have the opportunity to visit the pilot plant located in Sultanieh where a photovoltaic system has been installed to support the supply of electricity in case of blackouts.

"The MED-SOLAR project in Lebanon paves the way for commercial-scale solar photovoltaic systems that have yet to emerge in the country", said Antoine Graillot, the project coordinator. "The training course aims to encourage know-how transfer and future technological development."

The agenda of the training course is available here.

Finally, on 9th of September, the MED-SOLAR project will be presented during the Beirut Energy Forum, a major fair dedicated to renewable energy and energy efficiency in the Middle East. Click here to view the agenda.

MED-SOLAR at a glance

The countries of the Mediterranean area face the same specific energy reality: the increase in the energy price and the weakness of the electrical grid (impossibility of having increase in the power supply, interruptions, etc.), which reduces the security of supply in critical facilities such as hospitals and schools as well as the proper development of the small and medium size industries.

The MED-SOLAR project seeks to improve the situation in regions of Lebanon, Jordan and Palestine by encouraging the proliferation of generators using a solar photovoltaic system for energy back up.
