Ministry of Education Adopts New Course on Solar PV Applications

The Lebanese Ministry of Education and Higher Education has recently issued a new decision to include a 60-hour technical course on “solar photovoltaic installations, maintenance and operation” in the curriculum of the third year technical baccalaureate (BT “electrotechnique”). The decision number is 164/2017 and is signed by the Director General of the Ministry. The contents of the course was developed thanks to the support of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) (through the DREG project) and in collaboration with the LCEC based on the outputs of the EU-funded MED-DESIRE project. With the support of the two Lebanese companies Solarnet and Ecosys, the LCEC had previously installed a solar PV system at the Dekwaneh technical school as a pilot project to be used by professors and students. Given the yearly increase in the market size of solar photovoltaic applications in Lebanon, this new course would give a great added-value to students graduating with a BT degree and aiming to embark on a renewable energy career path.
