Masdar signs agreement to develop 2 GW of renewables in Jordan

Masdar has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Jordan’s Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources to explore collaboration in renewable energy projects with a total capacity of up to 2 GW. The MoU also includes exchange of expertise and knowledge in the areas of renewable energy and infrastructure development, including electricity transformation, distribution, and exportation. In 2015, Masdar delivered the 117 MW Tafila wind project in Jordan. The company was also the developer and lead partner on the 200 MW Baynouna project, located east of Amman.

Jordan, which produced 19% of its electricity from renewable sources in 2020 with 13% of solar and 7% of wind, aims to increase this share to 50% by 2030. Jordan is also looking to become a regional hub for green energy production.
