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.
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:
LSES organized a technical session of four presentations in the Order of Engineers under the subject “ Building integrated solar technologies “ The speakers were experts from LSES who showed case studies for projects implemented in Lebanon where the solar systems were integrates into the architecture of the building. During the session LSES president Mr Youssef Ghantous presented an appreciation medal to Mr Pierre El Khoury general director of LCEC for his valuable contributions to the Renewable energy sector in Lebanon.
