You are invited to participate to the RFQ of solar PV modules for Bakhoun Technical College
The envisaged project falls under the category of renewable energy for educational public institutions. It consists of the installation of a Photovoltaic PV Solar system on the roof of a remote public vocational technical school, Bakhoun public technical college, located in the north of Lebanon in the village of Bakhoun. The college provides technical vocational education for 900 students from both sexes including Lebanese and Syrians refugees.
The project is located in Bakhoun that falls under Union of municipalities of Dinniyeh which prepared the Sustainable Energy Access & Climate Action Plans (SEACAPs) that enables the beginning of financial mobilization for the actions that better the town or village’s mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions and/or climate change adaptation.
The college currently runs on fuel engine generators and the utility grid. The college management is suffering due to the Syrian refugee crisis that has led public schools to take on two shifts in addition to the burden of electricity costs considering excessive blackouts, high diesel cost and shortage of diesel.
The technical college in addition to the municipality are willing to start a great step towards sustainable energy for improving the environment by reducing the amount of carbon emissions and for cutting energy costs.
LSES is targeting to implement a solar PV system and LED Lighting retrofit in Bakhoun Technical College following the success of the crowdfunding campaign that raised 10,000 USD through donations and online support on Live Love Beirut Platform for Bakhoun Technical College. This project aims to decrease the load consumption of the college using renewable energy technologies and to reduce pollution loads.

An agreement is under signature between LSES and UNDP to implement PV Solar system with battery storage system at Bakhoun Technical School. LSES will have 40 000, 00 $ to complete this project.
Project will be launched in November 2021 and the opening is planned on June 2022 (7 months duration)
The Problem: In Bakhoun, a northern Lebanese village, 900 students are at risk of dropping out of school as their only educational facility in the area can no longer sustain itself in terms of electricity and power generation. The school closure is preventable if sustainable and long term measures are urgently implemented.
The Pre-concept note on a Water-Energy-Agriculture pilot project in North BeKaa where LSES will be responsible of the Energy Part introducing Solar Photovoltaics applications in the agriculture field has been completed.
Fund raising campaign is under launching
The LSES was awarded with its partners an EU grant to implement the REESTART project.
The Project “Renewable Energy and Efficiency for Sustainable Energy Transition and reinforced trust between SMEs (Small and medium enterprises) and ESCOs (Energy Services company) is a EU project to “Promote innovation and entrepreneurship in support of Lebanon’s clean energy transition”. It is under good progress and consists in 4 main pillars:
-Capacity Building Program to reach the Lebanese Energy Service Companies in order to train on the technical, financial and legal framework to develop own Energy Business.
-Call for proposal to select 35 SMEs in order to give them a partially subsidize for Energy Audit, and to select10 ESCOs in order to give them access to sustainable energy finance to implement the energy efficiency and renewable energy interventions
-Selection, implementation and monitoring of 6 Pilot Projects at SMEs plant.
-Creation of Lebanese federation of ESCOs
Oxfam and LSES completed an advanced 3-day training on solar pumping held in Chtaura for lebanese water establishements engineers and operators. The training was a great success and our national water establishment managers got to know more about solar integration possibilities.
The training was conducted by the Lebanese Solar Energy Society(LSES) and Oxfam global solar and in coordination with Bekaa Water Establishment from May 29,2019 to May 31,2019.
The objectives of the training was to increase the capacity of the participants to be able to:
