Badran Wins 2014 King Abdullah II Award for Innovation in Science

Ali Badran, UJ Professor of mechanical engineering, won the 2014 King Abdullah II Award for Innovation in the field of solar energy.  Badran received the award for designing a device that produces electricity, hot water, and desalinated water at the same time.



The device takes advantage of the lost energy from the photovoltaic panel (about 85 % of light energy is lost rather than being converted to electricity).



 It is worth noting that the award, which is granted in the fields of science, literature and arts consists of a certificate, a cash prize of JOD 25,000 for each field, and a golden medal.
