Africa/Middle East: Jordan

Partnership Exchange on Incentivizing Investment in Renewable Energy Generation

Date: May 2010
Location: Amman, Jordan

With support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Members of the Jordan Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) and NARUC experts met to discuss a wide range of issues related to incentivizing investment in renewable energy generation. They discussed licensing, renewable energy project contracts, and demand-side management, among other topics.

This partnership also included the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources. Including this important stakeholder allowed for more meaningful and timely dialogue on renewable energy and energy efficiency policy under the 2010 Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Law.
