Solar Energy Research Initiated by ACK

The Electronics & Controls Engineering Department at ACK has initiated a research project studying the potential of renewable energies. Knowing that Kuwait is a country with the one of the highest levels and quality of solar irradiation in the world, ACK has tied up with “Al-Dura United Trading & Contracting Company” and “Mashael Al-Kuwait for Solar & Renewable Energy Projects Company” – both key players in the field of solar and renewable energy – who donated a complete solar station of 1kilowatt with all its related devices and equipment for research purposes.

On this occasion, Dr. Mohammad Abdul Nibi, Head of the Electronics & Control Engineering Department at ACK, commented: “The collaboration with Al-Dura United and Mashael Al-Kuwait is another step towards providing relevant solar energy equipment and hands-on experience to our students, equipping them with the necessary skills, tools and knowledge to better understand and experience the field of renewable energies.”
