While the country is not blessed with the same easily extractable hydrocarbons resources as many of its neighbouring countries, it has favourable conditions to develop significant solar and wind energy capacity. Amman had set a target for renewables to produce 10% of its total power by 2020, but following commendable progress with its feed-in-tariff (FIT) programme, it is now hoping to surpass this.
