Jordan has made impressive progresses in implementing its national renewable energy strategy, which is underpinned by a supportive regulatory framework, a defined project pipeline and funding assistance from the GCC countries. In 2012, the government introduced regulations paving the way for solar net-metering, under which Jordanians can sell electricity produced by solar energy at a rate of 125 fils per kilowatt hour ($A0.22kw/h).
By the end of February 2015, the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources received wind project proposals of round one of the tender with a total capacity of about 250MW and solar projects of the second round, with a total capacity of 200MW.
Solar & Wind Projects Jordan 2016 will gather Jordan’s leading government representatives, investors, developers, consultants, EPC contractors, financiers, legal firms and technology providers to discuss future plans, regulatory updates, procurement models and construction strategies to deliver solar and wind projects leading up to 2020.
