Scaling-up renewable energy development in Jordan

To support our business-to-government event in Jordan we released our new “Scaling-Up Renewable Energy Development in Jordan” white paper which we carried out in collaboration with Pöyry and EDAMA.

Jordan has done very much in the last 20 years to attract renewable energy investments, creating an enabling environment for renewable energy investments and promulgating laws that enable an effective integration of RE into the grid.

However, a country with such a great potential like Jordan and with such a positive track record has what it takes for doing more. Barriers such as a lack of a comprehensive and timely energy strategies that go beyond 2025 targets, concerns about the grid’s stability and its flexibility to integrate higher renewable capacity, and unexpected changes in the regulatory framework have slowed down Jordan’s growth in RE.
