An Introduction to Solar PV in Gaza
Transcript of An Introduction to Solar PV in Gaza
The Gaza Strip receives more than double this: approximately 3550 hours By supplying reliable energy into the electrical grid, PV solar could play an important role in helping Gaza to achieve energy independence and stability. "Long lines for fuel in Gaza as energy crisis continues"
(NBC News) Solar Energy in the Gaza Strip Solar Photovoltaic: Heavy duties from the Palestinian authority and fluctuating international prices make oil an expensive option Oil creates dependence on the outside Importing oil means Gaza will always rely on foreign powers for its well-being and not have control of its own destiny How Solar Energy Works Effective Affordable Solar Energy is Affordable and Viable PV technology has become increasingly more affordable and productive over the past decade The current created by the solar panels will go directly into Gaza's electricity grid As the sun hits the panel, the PV generate electricity Solar panels can be placed on the roofs of buildings and so not use valuable land that could be used for agriculture or other valuable uses Gaza is in a severe energy crisis and needs solutions. Deficit: 88 MW Gaza's Current Energy Supply 120 MW from Israel 22 MW from Egypt
Most of this energy is in the form of traditional fossil fuel-powered electricity. 120 MW supplied by Gaza power station Gaza is energy-dependent on Egypt and Israel.
Gaza needs long-term energy solutions. Renewable energy = Energy created using natural processes such as wind, water, thermal and solar We want to measure the potential for solar PV implementation on all of Gaza's public buildings. Potential for Solar PV in Gaza IPCRI is conducting a survey to measure
the solar PV energy potential of public
buildings in Gaza.
What is IPCRI? The Israel/Palestine Centre for Research and Information is a joint Israeli-Palestinian think thank founded in 1988. The IPCRI Department of Environment works on building the capacity of the region to deal with its cross-border environmental issues.
