In the light of continuing progress for renewable energy projects in Jordan and the region, Jordan Cigre National Committee has the honor to invite engineers and experienced specialists, industrialists, academics and researchers in the electrical & industrial sectors to participate in the conference of  (Integration of  Large Capacity Renewable Energy Systems on Transmission and Distribution networks )  which will be held during the period April 26th to 27th, 2016 atLe MeridienAmman Hotel – in Amman/ Jordan.

This conference will be preceded by two workshops in the morning and evening of Monday, April 25th, 2016 entitled:"Commissioning & Final Acceptance Tests for Solar Projects (case study)" and"Commissioning & Final Acceptance Tests for Wind Projects (case study)", where through these workshops many actual case studies and practical solutions related to renewable energy projects will be presented.

This conference would be a valuable opportunity to enhance the interaction and exchange of knowledge among participants, as would be an appropriate event for institutions, electricity and industry representatives to put forward their problems and developing their plans to meet the integration of Large Capacity Renewable Energy systems on the T&D  networks.
