Jordan’s clean energy sector is witnessing “great momentum” and attracting world-renowned companies with decades of experience to invest in green technology projects in the Kingdom, a recent report indicated.
Jordan Clean Technology Sector Report 2016, released by EDAMA Association, showed that Jordan ranks second in the region for creating a favourable environment for renewable energy and energy efficiency investments, surpassed only by a thriving Tunisia, citing findings of the 2015 Arab Future Energy Index.
The report is the first of its kind to shed light on the country's clean technology sector, with information and statistics about the sector's progress and companies, according to EDAMA. It indicated that Jordan is placing a heavy emphasis on solar and wind power projects, highlighting that energy is the backbone for every sector in the Jordanian economy.
