Report Executive Summary

 Ahli Hospital Wind Energy Project (AWEP) is an EU funded pilot project that involves the design and implementation of a wind turbine system at Al-Ahli hospital to help meets its energy needs and serves as a capacity building exercise to encourage and assist similar projects to be implemented in other similar health organizations. A successful implementation of this project will avoid and minimize the risks of power intermittencies, decrease costs and improve the efficiency of an in-hospital power generation. This action will further include a series of awareness-raising workshops for the community, local and international study visits and tours, training sessions, field and feasibility studies of potential sites for wind generation in Palestine  and a detailed study of the Al-Ahli location to identify the best site for wind generation.

 The project activities will be implemented based on an international partnership and a local association  to enrich the project with the required expertise. The implementation phases of this project are divided into six work packages that will lead to achieve the project objectives. These work packages are :

WP 1   SYSTEM DEFINITION AND NEEDS-ASSESSMENTS

WP 2   SYSTEM INSTALLATION AND COMMISSIONING

WP 3   SYSTEM TESTING AND EVALUATION

WP 4   TRAINING, CAPACITY BUILDING

WP 5   WORKSHOPS AND DISSEMINATION

WP 6   MANAGEMENT, QUALITY ASSURANCE AND REPORTING

 

AWEP  is the first in type and size in Palestine, hence it needs more areas to explore especially in the wind resource assessment and the wind turbine installation and integration. Therefore the implementation of some core activities in WP1 and WP2 will require specific attention. So it’s expected that many challenges will appear during the project implementation. However, the proposed project framework is still convenient and will ensure the objectives achievement which will lead to install the most suitable wind turbine and to disseminate the renewable energy concept all over the Palestinian territories.

Future Recommendations

 The following recommendations are important for the success of the project implementation:

  • The EU Financial Management is kindly requested to consider the changes in the budget as mentioned in section 3.4.

  • The Palestinian Energy Authority (PEA) is asked to start building new polices to support and encourage Renewable Energy sources and connections to the grid ," those policies are the most important step towards building national renewable energy systems".

  • Cooperation Needed with the  Israeli authorities to facilitate the system import and permission required to the installation .

  • Working with Renewable Energy Centers at An-Najah National University to build the renewable energy map for Palestine. There are already efforts in this direction, but need to be supported at a national and international levels.

 Hebron Electric Power Company (HEPCO) is required to Study and supports the project needs to connect the extra power delivered by the system to feed the grid in the scenario of connecting the system directly to the hospital (Hybrid: Grid-Wind System).   Please refer to the project director for more information...
