AREC Chairman and Prince of Jordan Asem Bin Nayef hosts Powering Middle East Summit

The annual Powering Middle East Summit is once again facilitated in partnership with the Arab Renewable Energy Commission. The Summit, which brings together expertise in renewable energy implementation across the MENA region, with local and international technology innovators, shares many core principles with AREC, and looks forward to developing new partnerships which will help advance AREC’s renewable energy mission. Chairman of AREC and Prince of Jordan, HRH Prince Asem bin Nayef has graciously agreed to host the Powering Middle East Summit.

AREC is a not for profARECit non-government commission which was founded in 2011, its members represent several Arab countries and sets out to encourage the use of clean renewable energy in the Arab world. The commission aims to create awareness and encourage investments between partners by overcoming challenges, whether this is uncertainties in regional legislation, or a lack of knowledge in how to exploit renewable energy resources. AREC continues to develop renewable energy culture and explain the benefits to the members, with the aim of shifting green energy to the main source of energy, helping to reduce the effects of global warming and climate change and meet environmental targets for the region. These targets currently sit between 10% and 20% energy harvested from renewable sources by 2020.

AREC’s purpose is to create a regional centre, which acts as both a regional and international platform for researchers, engineers, economists, vendors and public sector officials, to help advance green technology innovations, maximise public awareness and create opportunities for renewable energy project implementation across all Arab countries. AREC will contribute its knowledge in Middle Eastern renewable energy policy and expertise to help strengthen the agenda for the Powering Middle East Summit. The summit will work together with AREC to create an inclusive and exclusive atmosphere which will build long term partnerships which have the ability to advance MENA renewable energy ambitions.

  1. The EH2ESS CAVICATOR Project involves an electro-chemical process in which H2O is converted into electricity and heat.

    The main components include: technical ceramics, in which are incorporated an anode and cathode, through which can be decomposed
    H2O by means of microwave;
    In this way 90% less energy is needed than using ordinary electrolysis
    – If 1 liter of water is decomposed electrolytically, it costs 5,000 watts of energy. Through the various types of ceramics and the micro-wave it will cost only 500 watts of energy; 1 m3 of H2 gas represents about 11 kW.

    The hydrogen gas formed in this way and the oxygen are fed directly to a fuel cell, and converted into electricity. The electricity generated is directly coupled to the grid through a converter, as happens with Solar panels. The released heat is transferred to a hot water supply.

    This system is suitable for any economic unit and thus can create large or small (mini) -grids via a ‘smart’ kWh meter. Also suitable for mobility-units. It will not rely on the environment and energy costs will be reduced by 50%, making the purchasing power increases and the economy will get a “boost” . This product may ultimately decentralizing the market. Another very important advantage is: total absence of harmful waste products. After all, no combustion of hydrocarbons and waste.
