  • Jordan aims to reach 50% of renewables in its power mix in 2030, so as to achieve 14% of renewables in the energy mix.
  • SEPCO represents 30% of total power generation. IPPs account for the remainder of power production.
  • NPC, the public company in charge of gas exploration and production, aims to achieve a daily production of 5.7 mcm/d by 2030.
  • The country has large oil shale and solar resources.
  • Gas accounted for 71% of the power mix in 2021 and renewables for 25%.
  • Electricity prices for households have risen by 27% in 2022 and diesel prices by 17%.
  • The country's energy consumption has decreased by 2.5%/year since 2017.
  • Oil supplies half of the total consumption.
  • Electricity demand should grow by an average of 6.5%/year until 2030.
  • Jordan will develop 600 MW of solar PV through the Prosperity Green project.
  • The country is showing interest in developing SMRs.

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR) coordinates the energy sector.

    EMRC, the Energy and Minerals Regulatory Commission was created in 2014 by merging several regulatory bodies (Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Natural Resources Authority and Electricity Regulatory Commission).

  • Energy Supply


    Jordan is relatively poor in conventional energy resources (gas reserves estimated at 6 bcm).

    It has the fifth largest oil shale resources, behind the USA, China, Russia, and Israel (100 mbl according to the WEC survey of energy resources), including 22 mbl of economically exploitable reserves in the Kérak and Lajjun regions.

  • Energy Prices


    With the rationalisation of consumption in mind, the prices of oil products have been raised in line with import and production costs. In 2012, Jordan lifted fuel subsidies, which implied a major rise in gasoline prices (+14% for lower grade gasoline, +33% for diesel (and kerosene) more than 50% for LPG).

  • Energy Consumption

    Consumption per capita is 0.8 toe/cap, including 1 973 kWh of electricity (2021).

    The country's overall consumption (around 8.5 Mtoe in 2021) has decreased by 2.5%/year since 2017.

    Oil is the country's main energy source, with 49% of total consumption, followed by natural gas with 37%.


  • Issues & Prospects


    According to its strategic plan for 2020-30, NPC aims to achieve a daily production of 5.7 mcm/d.

The Jordan energy market data since 1990 and up to is included in the Excel file accompanying the Jordan country report.
It showcases the historical evolution, allowing users to easily work with the data.

Key Data included in the excelsheet:

  • Economic indicators: Annual historical economic indicators, energy security, energy efficiency and CO2 emissions.
  • Supply indicators: Annual historical reserves, capacity, production and external trade (imports(+) exports(-) balance).
  • Demand indicators: Annual historical consumption per capita, consumption trends, total consumption, final consumption (per energy and per sector) and electricity consumption total and per sector.
  • Energy Balance: total and per energy.
  • Jordan Energy Prices: In addition to the analysis provided on the report we also provided a data set which includes historical details on the Jordan energy prices for the follow items: price of premium gasoline (taxes incl.), price of diesel (taxes incl.), price of electricity in industry (taxes incl.), price of electricity for households (taxes incl.), price of natural gas in industry (taxes incl.), prices of natural gas for households (taxes incl.), spot price of Brent and CO2 emissions (from fuel combustion).
