MED-Solar strategic project: innovative photovoltaic technologies to ensure energy supply in public facilities

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. 

These problems are common to the target countries of MED-Solar (“Machrek Energy Development-Solar”) strategic project. In Jordan, Lebanon and Palestine, the population is actually connected to the power grid, but with scarce quality and regular interruptions and cuts-off. Instead of using exclusively polluting and expensive fuel generators against electricity interruption, the project proposes to provide the generators with a solar photovoltaic system for energy backup.

The objectives, expected results and pilot actions of MED-Solar will presented to a wide audience of stakeholders during two workshops scheduled in Amman (Jordan) on 26th June and Nablus (Palestine) on 1st July
