JORDAN HAS AMBITIOUS VISION FOR RENEWABLE ENERGY — UFM

Jordan has taken a lot of action towards developing renewable energy and energy efficient technologies and services, according to Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) Deputy Secretary General for Energy and Climate Action Jorge Borrego.  Pointing out that the Kingdom is among the five top countries to receive the UfM's support, Borrego said that Jordan has "good ambitions and vision on renewable energy and a supportive action plan.  Borrego mentioned the Tafileh Wind Farm as a Jordanian success story. Hailing its sustainability, Borrego said that the project is not only of "high importance" when it comes to energy security and clean environment but also in the "immense support" it provides to the local population in terms of job opportunities, education, knowledge and health.  According to the UfM, The Tafileh Wind Farm, which is the first utility-scale renewable project in Jordan, was responsible for almost 25 per cent of the energy produced from renewable sources in Jordan in 2018 and currently powers 83,000 homes with 80 per cent of its employees from the local area.
