Conference Day One
08:40 Ministerial keynote address

H.E. Dr. Ibrahim Saif,
Minister, Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources


Jordan has made impressive progresses in implementing its national renewable energy strategy, which is underpinned by a supportive regulatory framework, a defined project pipeline and funding assistance from the GCC countries.

In 2012, the government introduced regulations paving the way for solar net-metering, under which Jordanians can sell electricity produced by solar energy at a rate of 125 fils per kilowatt hour ($A0.22kw/h).

By the end of February 2015, the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources received wind project proposals of round one of the tender with a total capacity of about 250MW and solar projects of the second round, with a total capacity of 200MW.

Solar & Wind Projects Jordan 2016 will gather Jordan’s leading government representatives, investors, developers, consultants, EPC contractors, financiers, legal firms and technology providers to discuss future plans, regulatory updates, procurement models and construction strategies to deliver solar and wind projects leading up to 2020.

Excellent Opportunities For The Solar & Wind Technology Industry

Did You Know?

  • Jordan has one of the highest solar irradiance levels in the world of 4-7kWh per square meter coupled with more than 300 days of sunshine. This provides a high potential for the development of solar power in the country.
  • Jordan possesses high potential of wind energy resources with annual average wind speeds exceeding 7m/s (at 10m height) in some areas of the country.
  • Jordan is looking to generate 30% of its electricity production from indigenous sources by 2020 to reduce its reliance on imported fuel. Renewable energy capacity development will help meet these targets.
  • Jordan is expected to commission around 1,800 MW of solar and wind power capacity by 2018. The government is preparing to accept offers for additional wind capacity of 250MW.
  • Jordan’s Energy Minister, in mid-2014, announced that the government expects to commission about 1,800MW of solar and wind power capacity by 2018. Of these, power purchase agreements have already been signed for 200MW of solar power projects.
  • Jordan issued PPAs for 200MW of solar power in February 2014, and updates on the country's largest PV power plant, the 52MW Shams Ma'an facility, which will be built by US firm First Solar.
  • Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA), the political risk insurance and credit enhancement arm of the World Bank Group, is backing the development, construction and operation of four solar power projects in Jordan, adding 50 megawatts of clean, renewable energy generation capacity to the country’s grid.
  • In July 2015, Kuwaiti Fund for Arab Economic Development and the Abu Dhabi Fund for Development have agreed to the increase in the total generating capacity for the projects of the wind energy in Maan and solar cells in Quweirah to 180 megawatts (MW), expecting the total cost of both projects to stand at around $300 million.

The ACM Interface+ Format

The ACM Interface+ conference format is designed to optimise the valuable and finite time our busy delegations can dedicate to being out of the office while also enhancing their enjoyment of the ACM on-site experience. Specifically tailored to our region of operations here in the Middle East, the Interface+ format maximises networking opportunities, facilitating the building of profitable relationships within the context of a dynamic, efficient and relevant learning environment.

ACM conference days, using the Interface+ format, have an earlier start than conventional agendas and conclude with a late lunch. The conference sessions are regularly punctuated by refreshment and networking breaks to allow for unhurried face-to-face interaction between peers, colleagues and business prospects. The mid-afternoon conclusion of our formal conference agenda allows for government representatives and busy executives to adjourn earlier in the day, having still enjoyed a full and rich programme of content. Post-lunch, ACM will offer additional, optional learning and networking opportunities in the shape of workshops, product demonstrations, technology launches, site visits, pre-arranged 1-2-1 business meetings and hosted receptions.

Interface+ makes timing sense for our delegates and business sense for our sponsors.
