Machrek Energy Development - Solar (MED-Solar)
Start date: Dec 31, 2012, End date: Dec 30, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The project in briefThe 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 hospital 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 project (Lebanon, Jordan and Palestine) where all the population is actually connected to the 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.With the achievement of MED-Solar the energy situation in the three target countries will improve by reducing energy costs, decreasing the dependence on imported fuel and improving the security of supply through the use of clean energy resources.Specific objectiveTo promote and implement innovative technologies and know-how transfer in the field of solar energy, especially photovoltaic energy. Expected Results: • National energy grids and their weakness characterized in Jordan, Lebanon and Palestine • Set of recommendations defined to improve legal frameworks and energy tariff schemes • Power from solar energy increased in 3 public buildings and 1 industry (between 500-800 m2 of photovoltaic modules installed) • Pilot plants tested, validated and monitored
