A. Anabtawi) (Technical Support) Fri, 25 Aug 2023 14:26:28 +0000 OJS 60 An Overview of Research in the Field of Project Construction and Management <p>The success of failure of a project depends on various organizational and non organizational factors. Various stakeholders are often tasked with different roles to ensure success of a given project. The success of a project is predominantly defined by the end user satisfaction while in most cases it is defined by the number of stakeholders who affirms that most of the project requirements were addressed. Other than satisfaction of the stakeholders, managerial skills have a stake in the success of the project. A good manager is one that ensures there is flow of information between the project owners and the team players to ensure success of the project. This chapter highlights some of the risks that could jeopardize the success of a project and outlines the effective measures that would ensure a project is successfully completed. A good project is one that works within the allocated time and budget, since those are the crucial parameters used to evaluate the success of a project. The chapter reviews four foreign articles alongside ten Persian articles.</p> Ali Fadhil Jawad, Mostafa Ghazi Moradi Copyright (c) 2023 American Scientific Research Journal for Engineering, Technology, and Sciences Mon, 04 Sep 2023 00:00:00 +0000 Creation of Small Rural Energy Communities in the Island of Crete, Greece. Are They Feasible? <p>Energy communities are well developed in many EU countries allowing the local production of green energy with the participation of environmentally conscious residents willing to be energy self-sufficient utilizing indigenous green energy resources and eliminating their carbon emissions. The possibility of creating energy communities in small rural villages in Crete, Greece has been investigated in the present study. Two small villages in western Crete, Modi and Ravdoucha, have been selected and their annual energy requirements in electricity, domestic hot water and space heating have been calculated. The characteristics of the solar photovoltaic systems generating annually all the electricity demand in these two villages have been estimated. The nominal power of the solar-PV system in Modi village has been evaluated at 334.02 KW<sub>p</sub> while the investment cost for each inhabitant in the village at 1,787 €. The corresponding nominal power of the solar-PV system in Ravdoucha village has been evaluated at 370.86 KW<sub>p</sub> and the corresponding cost for each inhabitant at 3,617 €. The solar photovoltaic system in each village can be created collectively with the establishment of an energy cooperative and the active participation of all the residents. Additionally, it has been indicated that the annual demand for domestic hot water and space heating in these two villages can be covered individually using their indigenous carbon-free green energy resources. Therefore, the creation of small energy communities in small rural villages in Crete is technically and financially feasible. The results of the present study can be used by policy makers and local authorities in Crete willing to promote the green energy transition in small rural societies.</p> John Vourdoubas Copyright (c) 2023 American Scientific Research Journal for Engineering, Technology, and Sciences Mon, 04 Sep 2023 00:00:00 +0000
