The Assistant Minister of Electricity for Energy Affairs, Eng. Nidal Qarmousha, stressed that joining the framework agreement for the establishment of the International Solar Energy Alliance is an opportunity that must be seized by all countries, pointing out that Syria's accession helps its electricity institutions to develop their skills and capabilities in this field.
Qarmousha said in a statement to SANA reporter today that Syria’s joining the coalition also helps to increase reliance on renewable energy sources directly on the demand side, or by establishing large renewable power stations that produce electricity and sell it to the public network. It also helps build the capacity of workers and increase training opportunities available for engineers Young people working in the ministry and developing legislation and laws regulating the optimal use of renewable energies.
The Assistant Minister of Electricity clarified that energy uses are more effective and economically feasible when established to meet industrial or agricultural loads such as cold rooms, poultry houses, and cattle yards, and in the service sectors where they meet their needs of electricity and energies produced from renewable energies.
With regard to the field of energy demand, Garmosha explained that it is possible to rely on electric buses that charge their batteries from photovoltaic stations, which helps greatly in providing public transport service without the need for fuel such as diesel and others, indicating that joining will help to learn about the experiences of other countries in this field.
It is noteworthy that the agreement includes training and does not obligate the Syrian government to any expenses, as it is useful for attracting investments from friendly countries to Syria.
