The Tafila Technical University in Jordan in cooperation with Triple M Construction held a seminar on renewable energy and its role in the development of the local community.
The seminar discussed means of cooperation between private sector companies, universities, and the government sector for the development of the local community, as well as solving problems of wind energy projects, maximizing the local component, and introducing advanced solutions and technologies.
Hatem Al Romy, chairperson of Triple M, reviewed the company’s activities and its role in implementing many projects in Egypt and Jordan and its efforts to benefit from research and science to serve the community development, in addition to localisation of technology.
He pointed out that cooperation with the Tafila Technical University will be in favour of the community. There are many ideas and proposals that could be agreed upon, including the localisation of wind technology.
“The problem is not in the lack of research, but in the failure to adopt the results of such research. We seek to integrate and cooperate to apply all research and innovations,” he said.
Moreover, Salah Ibrahim, renewable energy consultant at Triple M, said: “Keeping current growth rates in wind and other renewable energy projects and accelerating growth rates requires government action at various levels, including involving the private sector in the development and establishment of renewable energy projects, manufacturing of energy production equipment.”
He said that the private sector is an active actor with good experience that will contribute to reducing costs and improving efficiency. Governments should also play a key role in activating this sector and encouraging more investments through the development of renewable energy strategies.
