Jordan

Jordan relies on importing energy resources to meet its domestic energy demand for fossil fuels. These energy imports account for more than 40% of the country’s budget. Jordan’s total primary consumption is entirely focused on fossil fuels, and its installed capacity is also principally fired on oil and gas. Jordan’s government plans to boost electricity generation capacity from renewable sources to 3.22 GW by 2025.  Jordanian strategy aims to reduce energy consumption by 20% by 2020 and 18% by 2030.

Jordan is a RCREEE member state since 2008.
