AMMAN – The Faculty of Engineering at Middle East University organised a workshop on renewable energy as part of the European AT-SGIRES project. Participants included a number of Jordanian universities, representatives of the public sector, and MEU faculty members.
Prof. Aladdin Al Halhouli, the Vice President for Scientific Faculties, stressed the importance of the project and touched on its objectives, stating, “This project provides renewable energy engineers with access to high quality education in the field of smart grids and allows them to learn more about the mechanisms of integrating renewable energy systems.”
The workshop addressed modern ideas and issues such as the features of smart grids and related distribution methods, security techniques for protecting electric networks, and the information technology and communications protocols that must be applied for the successful implementation of smart grids.
AT-SGIRES is a project funded by the European Union in association with Erasmus+. It aims to provide engineers in the Middle East and North Africa with access to high quality education and teach them how to implement smart grids systems and other modern technologies and applications. It also aims to help engineers develop their policy-making and research skills.
