The Project’s Goals

The goals of this project can be summarized as follows:

1- Providing new and interesting technical solutions based on the use of renewable energy to enhance energy in remote desert areas, which may have harsh (related to the Earth’s weather) conditions.

2- Finding the best design and effective operation of a smart combination of two things/gas-electric vehicle mini-grids in desert climate areas

3- Conducting research on environmental adaptation of basic equipment in remote desert areas with harsh environmental conditions

4- Providing a service to establish micro-networks in the Arab Republic of Egypt and northwest China (areas with desert conditions) 5- Beginning and building a small company for the user in terms of supply and demand with a smart transmission system according to Egyptian features. (remote desert areas).

Project outputs

– Constructing an isolated smart hybrid network to provide energy to far-flung, isolated places using the available renewable energy sources, depending on the weather.

– Increasing hands-on expertise in constructing micro-networks in arid climate zones using renewable energy sources.

– The exchange of advanced technologies in the design and construction of micro-networking equipment between the Chinese and Egyptian sides.

-To provide the ideal working environment, a comparison of the solar module’s performance with and without a cooling system is conducted.

– Presenting the viability of isolated microbial networks based on the arid environment.

– Improving research into the incorporation of renewable energy sources into micro-networks in areas with difficult desert conditions.

– Publishing research in journals and conferences published abroad.
