The German Jordanian University (GJU), ESMES partner in Jordan, held a meeting with Irbid District Electric Company (IDECO) to discuss the rising issues facing electrical grid operators due to increased PV penetration in Jordan

In this meeting, GJU presented some of the project goals related to piloting innovative solutions and providing necessary data to affect policy change. While IDECO presented the technical challenges that are facing the electrical sector in Jordan.

As the project’s pilot will tackle both load behavior and grid conditions, while being scalable, it was agreed to share information in different implementation phases to better meet project goals.

EU-funded ESMES project addresses the common challenge of fostering renewable energies and reducing energy use, with the common perspective of: adapting to Med climate conditions, finding innovative, effective ways of optimizing renovation investments and reducing the effects on electricity network.
