The connection will help reduce the load of oscillations and will boost the two countries’ reliance on renewable energy.

AMMAN — Abdel Fattah Daradkeh, director general of the National Electric Power Company (NEPCO), said that Jordan and Saudi Arabia will sign an agreement on Thursday to connect both countries’ electric grids, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

The connection will help reduce the load of oscillations and will boost the two countries’ reliance on renewable energy.

The agreement came from the framework of the 2nd International Conference for IT Applications in the Development of Renewable Energy Systems and Processes for Intelligent Cities, which was organised by University of Petra’s ICT collage in cooperation with the National Research University Higher School of Economics of Moscow.

Daradkeh stressed that the cooperation between the ICT and the renewable energy sectors could help in solving many problems that are facing renewable energy fields.
