Jordan will continue to pursue projects that aim to increase the percentage of renewable energy sources in Jordan’s energy mix up to 50%, according to a Jordanian official.


Amani Al Azzam, secretary general of the Jordanian Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry, stated that the Arab country expects to achieve this share of nearly 31% by the year 2030, with the implementation of solar and wind power projects in certain areas.

She said that “We will achieve this target by 2030, but we will continue our efforts to achieve 50% with solar and wind projects, we think this target is achievable,” at an energy conference held in Barcelona, Spain.


Azzam was quoted by the local newspaper saying that the Ministry is in the process to conduct a “comprehensive review” of the Energy Strategy.


She said that the new strategy is designed to increase support for plans involving a switch to renewable energy and green hydrogen production.
