New policy and low cost

Jordan is not as richly endowed with natural resources as it neighbors and therefore relies on 94% of its fuel and energy requirements on imports, which equals about 8.5% of the country’s GDP in 2017.

Jordan depends on "import" for its energy requirement needed

The Government of Jordan (GoJ) has implemented its straightforward National Energy Strategy (NES), which runs from 2015 to 2025, underpinning the Kingdom’s energy transition. This policy will not only lower Jordan’s energy costs but will also make more affordable energy solutions available to local sectors, allowing them to continue to thrive in line with the Jordan Economic Growth Plan 2018-2022  targeting 10% of Renewable energy of the total energy mix in 2020.
