Mr. Hassain Mohammad A. Alzubaidi
Senior Generation Engineer, Generation Operation Planning Department, Saudi Electricity Company, Saudi Arabia


  • Course Title: Energy Policy (B) 2011, Group Training
  • Implementing Partner: The Institute of Energy Economics, Japan

I am a senior generation engineer of Saudi Electricity Company, Saudi Arabia. I make a daily plans and operation plans according to production policy.

Our system and machines are quite old, which results in low energy efficiency. In addition, people have little awareness of how to utilize energy efficiently and effectively.

In this course, I could learn how Japanese government has devised strategies to change people's awareness of conservation and efficient utilization of energy. I was impressed by the net zero building. It shows an advanced example in efficient utilization of energy.

After returning to my country, I will try to adapt the Japanese policy to Saudi Arabians by cooperating with my colleagues to gradually change people's awareness of energy.
