Jordan’s Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources has implemented many renewable energy projects worth $70.5 million over the past four years, through the Jordan Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Fund (JREEEF), according to Minister Hala Zawati, Jordan Times reported.

The projects were financed by JREEEF in cooperation with donors from project owners, including the European Union (EU), the Canadian government, the Italian Ministry of Environment, and the French Development Agency.

The projects aim to enhance the renewable energy sector’s contribution to the overall energy mix.

Implementing these projects comes in line with Jordan’s initiative to provide heating systems for schools and to replace traditional light bulbs with energy-saving LED ones.

The JREEEF is the executive arm of the ministry and targets residential houses to facilitate the shift to renewable energy resources as a sustainable source for energy.
