In Jordan, the national renewable energy strategy, has been set and will target 1,800 MW, or 10 per cent of the country’s energy supply, to come from renewable sources by 2020. The government’s plan will call for 600 MW of this new capacity to be provided by solar power. The Renewable Energy Trade Mission in Jordan organized by MESIA will present a comprehensive outlook on developments in the Jordanian solar market  and the regulatory framework for developing solar projects in the country.  Officials and very senior representatives from the government will give you an overview of the key growth sectors for solar in Jordan; Commercial roof top sector, utility scale power plants, captive power projects (hotels, large consumers), to name a few. The aim of this Trade Mission is to connect international solar companies, manufacturers and investors with local Jordanian industry leaders. The target is to facilitate partnership discussions between MESIA members and local companies interested in expanding in the renewable energy sector in Jordan.
