An-Najah National University launches its first Photovoltaic Solar Carport project


Funded by the ENI-CBC-MED Project Med-EcoSuRe, An-Najah Naional University has launched a 50 kWp grid-tied carport system at the university campus. This system not only provides additional energy but also serves as an example for architectural integration of Solar PV.

The solar carport project aims to promote the transfer of knowledge and technology in renewable energies, using its facilities as a proof of concept for new innovative products and services. The results may be replicable and exportable to other urban and social contexts. The solar panels also provide shade to 24 of parking spaces of the garage.


The solar car park consisting of 105 photovoltaic modules of 465 watts that allow the fully charging of up to 6 electric vehicles.

The photovoltaic system covering approximately 50 m2. It is expected to generate 50 kilowatts of solar-generated electricity annually, approximately 85 MWh annually.

The project is among the many initiatives that support University Climate Action Commitment and Sustainability Plan. The plan aims to reduce global warming emissions in everyday campus operations.
