Jordan: Renewable Energy Opportunities 08/01/13

  • Jordan
  • Energy and infrastructure


Jordan’s National Energy Strategy highlights the importance of renewable and nuclear energy, with plans to transform the kingdom into a net exporter by 2030. The plans aim to increase the renewable energy share in the energy mix from 2% to 7% by 2015 and to 20% by 2020.

Jordan has tremendous renewable energy potential which can only be realised by large-scale investments. Both wind and solar will form part of the projects for investment in the Jordanian economy. The adoption in April 2012 of the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Law (REEL) by Jordan’s Parliament envisaged an increase in private-sector investment in renewable energy in Jordan.

See below details on current tender opportunities (invitations are copies of the published versions by the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR)).
