Jordan Energy

Though it lacks the petroleum resources of many of its Arab neighbours, Jordan’s limited hydrocarbons have helped its energy industry become one of the most progressive and dynamic in the region. Development of renewable and nuclear energy is set to significantly boost domestic capacity and reduce the kingdom’s fuel bill in the coming years. The emphasis on renewables should help Jordan showcase its commitment to a serious climate change policy; it has already committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 14%.

This chapter contains interviews with Ibrahim Saif, Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources; and Adnan Z Amin, Director-General, International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA).
