Two students from Al-Azhar University in the center of Gaza are redefining energy limitations that have plagued the area for years.

Working with the institute’s Mechatronics Engineering Department, Khalid al-Bardawil and Jamal al-Miqaty, who are engineering students, have created a vehicle that runs off solar panels on its roof with a very limited budget.

“Electricity [powered] motors are not available in our city and unfortunately nobody knows how to make them,” explained Al-Miqaty to reporters, adding, “we had to [get] a motor and make a lot of changes to it, and these changes were not easy to make.”

The blockade of the Gaza Strip, which refers to a land, air, and sea blockade on the Gaza Strip by Israel and Egypt from 2007 to present, continues to infringe on the wellbeing and rights of those living in this Palestinian territory along the Gaza Strip. It’s also suffocated the area of necessary resources like fuel.

Jerusalem authorities are in control of much of the energy sources and supplies in Palestine by way of its Israel Electric Corporation, as well as heavily restricting imports. And while the setbacks have proven detrimental to Palestinian residents, not all of them are willing to accept such a fate.

With a shoestring budget, the two students from the Islamic Al-Azhar University, are proving that just because fuel is often difficult to come by in Gaza doesn’t mean there aren’t other options.
