The Energy Research Centre (ERC) was established in 1996 by a decision of the Board of Trustees of An Najah National University (ANNU). This research centre is concerned with, research, development, system design, feasibility studies and training in all conventional and renewable energy fields, energy management and energy conservation. In early 2000 the scope of the centre was expanded to encompass the impacts of energy on global environment, health and social development.
The research team of ERC consists of high accredited specialized experts in the various mentioned fields, mostly professors at An Najah National University. The know how and experiences of the team are diversified and covers most areas of electric power systems, energy management, energy efficiency , renewable energy and global environment. Therefore, this centre is unique in Palestine and can be considered as a qualified centre of high potential.
