ASU Renewable Energy Center established in 1996 for research issues of our academic staff and students , and to follow up the new technology in energy field especially renewable energy which it's now capture the attention of all countries all around the world .
Our Vision is to develop Energy Projects and help Researches to enhance the quality of energy research in the energy sector.
Our mission is to carry out high quality project technical support, research assistance and training in the renewable energy field in the university.
In 2013 ASU installed the PV project in two separated systems:
1- Photovoltaic System of 500 kWp Grid connected installed on Engineering roof, library roof, and activity building roof.
2-Test Field system of 58 kWp Grid connected.
Then in 2015 as the first university in Jordan, ASU installed the Weather Station to give an useful data for persons who are interested in studying the weather parameters (temperature , humidity ,wind speed , wind direction ,… ) , this data upload and update automatically in the formal website of the university (http://asu.edu.jo/index.php/en/weather-station) and it's available for all .
In addition to our PV projects and researches we expanded and opened the opportunities of practical training for our students and others from other universities. Also as a future plan we'll hold many training courses in renewable energy and PV systems, and build a partnership with many leading institutions in energy field.
