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 up from the current 18 MW to 1.8GW by 2020, setting a target of 10% of primary energy demand from renewable energy by 2020. Jordan is in the process of adopting its NEEAP, and plans to achieve a 20% reduction of primary energy consumption by 2020.

Jordan is a RCREEE member state since 2008.
