Jordan’s Renewable Energy and Foreign Investment

Jordan’s renewable energy sector presents both opportunities and challenges for foreign investors. The country has been actively promoting renewable energy since 2011, establishing a domestic market for renewables and aiming to increase the share of solar and wind energy in its electricity grid. Jordan’s renewable energy projects offer opportunities for international companies in the sector, ranging from equipment to technology and consultancy services. The country’s long-term potential for renewable energy investments is evident, with an average of 316 sunny days per year, suitable wind speeds, and large desert areas with low population density, making it an attractive location for solar and wind energy projects.

However, the renewable energy sector in Jordan also presents challenges for foreign investors. The country’s energy market has been dominated to a large extent by rich individuals and private entities, and policies have prioritized personal production over reducing state energy costs. Such profit-oriented policies have led to significant public losses, which have been offset by borrowing from international financial institutions. The energy market has also been affected by privatization and liberalization, with increasing electricity prices, potentially impacting the socioeconomic landscape. These dynamics pose challenges for foreign investors seeking to navigate the renewable energy market in Jordan.

Despite these challenges, Jordan’s renewable energy sector remains an attractive investment opportunity. The country’s commitment to increasing the share of renewable energy in its energy mix, coupled with its favorable climate for solar and wind energy, positions Jordan as a promising international hub for renewable energy investments. As the nation addresses the challenges within its energy market, it continues to offer opportunities for foreign investors and engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) companies looking to participate in its renewable energy initiatives.

Jordan’s renewable energy sector has been growing steadily, with the government’s efforts to promote the country as a regional hub for renewable energy. The country’s favorable tax regime, political stability, and skilled workforce have contributed to the growth of the renewable energy sector. The government has also been working to attract foreign investment in the sector, with the establishment of the Jordan Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Fund (JREEEF) to promote the country’s renewable energy sector and attract foreign investors.

The renewable energy sector in Jordan has the potential to create jobs and stimulate economic growth. The country’s commitment to increasing the share of renewable energy in its energy mix has led to the development of new projects and the expansion of existing ones. The government’s efforts to promote the country as a regional hub for renewable energy have attracted international companies to invest in the sector, creating new opportunities for local businesses and entrepreneurs. The renewable energy sector has also contributed to the country’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote sustainable development.
