Day 1 Jordan's Energy Efficiency Policies

  1. 1. National Energy Efficiency Action Plan Amman, Jordan December 5-6, 2010JORDAN’S ENERGY EFFICIENCY Policies Muhieddin Tawalbeh National Energy Research CenterNational Energy Research Center 12/16/2012
  2. 2. Electrical Energy Consumption 2009 Street lighting Water pumping 3% 15% Residential 41% Commercial 16% Industry 25% National Energy Research Center 12/16/2012
  3. 3. Energy Conservation in the Various Sectors 35% 30% 30% 28.40% 25% 21% 20% 20% 20% 20% 15% 10% 5% 0% Industrial Commercial Residential Water Transport Pumping
  4. 4. Energy Efficiency is expected to reduce forecasted demand from16.733 Mtoe to 13.252 Mtoe by 2020, a 3.481 Mtoe or 21% of totalestimated demand. The use of renewable energy measures wouldfurther reduce this demand to 12.079 Mtoe. National Energy Research Center 12/16/2012
  5. 5. Current Energy Efficiency Activities in Jordan Jordan’s energy efficiency strategy- 2004Commercial and industrial energy audits Residential and street lighting efficiency program by AFD Equipment energy efficiency labels and standardsEERE LAW EE Roadmap/ EEO  EE By-law National Energy Research Center 12/16/2012
  6. 6. JORDAN’S ENERGY EFFICIENCY STRATEGYIn 2004, an energy efficiency strategy was developed by theMinistry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR) incooperation with NERC to complement the National EnergyStrategy with specific goals and policies to deal with theemerging energy challenge. The key goals of the Strategy wereto: Reduce consumption without negatively effecting production or the standard of living for Jordanians. Achieve a balance between imports and exports. Reduce production cost and improve competitiveness of local industries. Lower the investment needs in the generation, transmission and distribution of energy through efficiency improvements.

  7. 7. Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency LawThe Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Law,passed in February 2010, allows the Ministry of Energyand Mineral Resources (MEMR) to work with otherspecialized entities to conserve energy and increaseEnergy Efficiency (EE) in different sectors (Clause 3c),and the government is requested to issue by-lawsnecessary for execution of the provisions of therenewable energy and energy efficiency law, includingprocedures and measures for energy efficiency andenergy efficiency in the various sectors (Article 17).National Energy Research Center 12/16/2012
  8. 8. Jordan Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Fund (JREEF) The new Energy Law introduce the establishment of a fund to provide the necessary investment for the development of renewable energy and energy efficiency projects. The new fund is known as Jordan Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Fund (JREEF) It is established as a legally independent entity with financial and administrative autonomy. It is also allowed to receive donors’ grants and financial assistance. National Energy Research Center 12/16/2012
  9. 9. Energy Efficiency By-law Issued under Article 17 of the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Law No (3) 2010Article 02 Purpose and Scope This by-law shall abate obstacles to promote the efficient use of energy, stimulate investment and thus induce new business opportunities. It provides for the essential institutional framework which establishes the legal basis for activities promoting energy efficiency as to be detailed in further policy documents. These documents being mainly the Energy Efficiency Roadmap and the National Energy Efficiency Action Plan. This framework covers all relevant sectors, being electricity production, public, industrial, commercial, residential and transport. In order to stimulate energy efficiency in these sectors the provisions of this by-law apply to public institutions, energy suppliers, electricity generators, electricity transmission and distribution companies, energy service companies, manufacturers and suppliers of energy end-use products, and end-consumers. 12/16/2012 National Energy Research Center
  10. 10. EE-Roadmap – What does it address?Main goals of Roadmap document• Refine EE target (20% by 2020)• Identify constraints and derive necessary enabling steps• Define implementation mechanisms and tasks of a coordination entity – the Energy Efficiency Office (EEO)
