Princess Sumaya inaugurates solar electricity system
Amman, May 27 (Petra) -- President of El Hassan Science City (EHSC) and the Royal Scientific Society (RSS) Her Royal Highness Princess Sumaya bint El Hassan said Sunday solar energy should constitute a central part of Jordan's future energy mix.

Speaking at the inauguration of the Solar Electricity Solar System at the EHSC, Princess Sumaya said that solar energy systems are "a response to our economic, social and environmental needs thanks for their role in enhancing our environment, economy and political security".

The EHSC is running the project, funded by the Japanese Government as part of the "Cool Earth Partnership" initiative.

"Renewable technologies form a crucial part of our creative mix and there is no doubt that Jordan’s highly educated young population needs an avenue for innovation and opportunity, for technologies such as green energy will guarantee the future health and security of our younger generations," she explained.

The new system will generate 280 kilo watt to be used at El Hassan Science City.

The Princess valued the Japanese government’s role in providing vital financial assistance to developing countries that wish to address climate change. "We, In Jordan, are committed to achieving emissions reduction and economic growth, in addition to sustainable development and global climate stability." The EHSC was founded on the belief that scientific research and application is a key mechanism for developing and retaining human resources and capital ultimately.

The city also seeks to forge a leadership role for Jordan and the Middle East by creating alliances of knowledge and building a centre for thought and action excellence.

EHSC encompasses three main affiliates namely; the Royal Scientific Society (RSS), the Princess Sumaya University for Technology (PSUT) and the El Hassan Business Park.
