An-Najah University researcher Imad Ibrik from the Electrical Engineering ‎Department, and the Energy Research Center Director, conducted a research ‎study titled: “Micro-Grid Solar Photovoltaic Systems for Rural Development and ‎Sustainable Agriculture in Palestine". The research has been published in ‎Agronomy Journal, as part of the Special Issue “Photovoltaics and Electrification in ‎Agriculture”, Agronomy is monthly peer-reviewed open-access scientific journal ‎with an impact factor of 2.603, and indexed in Scopus as a Q1 journal.‎


The study focused on the impact of using micro-grid solar photovoltaic (PV) ‎systems in rural areas in the West Bank, Palestine. The paper details two case ‎studies from Palestine and shows the inter-relation between energy, water and ‎food in rural areas to demonstrate how the availability of sustainable energy can ‎ensure water availability, improve agricultural productivity and increase food ‎security. Further, the paper attempts to evaluate the technical and economic ‎impacts of the application of nexus approaches to Palestine’s rural areas. The ‎results of this study are for a real implemented project and predict the long-term ‎success of small, sustainable energy projects in developing rural areas in Palestine.‎
