8 Solar Exclusion Map “Action Plan for high priority renewable energy initiatives in Southern and Eastern Mediterranean Area” (REMAP), 2007 (REMAP

9 Conclusions- solar potential With all these restrictions, 5% of the surface of Jordan is estimated to be suitable for developing solar plants. This figure would involve 100 GW = 250 TW.h Solar generation capacity economic potential estimation has been carried out : reducing the economic potentially feasible area to 15 km to the 132 kV grid boundary. ► 1% of the surface of Jordan. This area means 20 GW of installed capacity, with an electrical production of 50,000 GWh, being the current annual electrical consumption in Jordan around 12,000 GWh

10 Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR), with cooperation with Royal Geographic Center, has provided wind resource map in Jordan at 50 m height a.g.l.:

11 Exclusion Criteria The application of this filter allows estimating the available area around 41 % of the total surface of Jordan. Distance >1000 m of a Residential areas, noise < 40 db. Distance < 100 m from the axis of a regional road, Distance < 200 m from the axis of highway. Lakes and dams (hydrology). Water covered areas are neglected in the estimation of wind. Distance less than 75 km of a line of electric transmission.

12 Wind Power Exclusion Map The application of this filter allows estimating the available area around 16 % of the total surface of Jordan. Taking into account these figures, the wind technical potential is 3.6 GW.

13 Hydro-power Potential 1- King Talal dam spanning the river Zarqa, 5 MW. 2- Aqaba thermal power station 5 MW. 3- Khirbit Al Samra WWTP 3.5 MW The total capacity of hydropower is 13.5 MWe, the total amount of electricity generated, in 2012, by hydro-units was 57.6 GWh.

16 Total Energy in Landfills 356 MW

17 Solid Biomass The olive cake represents the solid biomass resources in Jordan tons of olive cake is generated every year with a rate of increase of 4.5% every year.

18 Geothermal Potential Most of these wells are discharging thermal water range in temperature from 30 to 62 C o. Azraq Well (Az-1) is the classic example of these wells. Azraq well is located about 2 km south west of North Azraq. Another well of importance is Smeika -1 well which is located at 17 km north of Safawi town. The temperature is 57°C and the total dissolved solids are about 600 ppm with high H 2 S smell. Several wells have been drilled during the oil exploration project by Natural Resources Authority.

20 II-CURRENT RE UTILIZATIONS S OLAR E NERGY – S OLAR W ATER H EATERS 12% in 2012 according to the last survey done by Department of Statistics (DOS). The total energy output was estimated at 380 GWh yearly. the total savings in the primary energy was 61, 218 toe. Assuming 24% penetration in the year 2020, The resulting energy savings are projected to be 760 GWh, or primary energy savings of toe.

21 S OLAR PV the total installed capacity was 0.5 MW in the year 2006, and 1.6 MW in Most of these units have been installed in the remote areas of Jordan, for the purpose of lighting, water pumping systems and have the capability of producing 3.21 GWh per year. Therefore, the savings in the primary energy is equivalent to 399 toe. This is expected to rise to 100 MW in the year 2020, equivalent to GWh per year, or toe in saving primary energy.

22 W IND E NERGY Two wind farms are in operation in the Northern Part of Jordan. The first was installed in Al- Ibrahemya in 1987 with a capacity of 320 kW. The second wind farm was installed in Hofa with a capacity of 1,125 kW. In 2006, the total capacity of these two wind farms was MW with output of 3.16 GWh per year, equivalent to 789 toe of primary energy mix). It is expected that 500 MW will be available in 2020, with a capacity of GWh. This has a potential saving of 272,957 toe of primary energy.

23 Biogas In 2006, the total installed capacity of bio-energy was about 3.5 MW in the Russaifa Biogas Plant, and Khirbit ALsamra WWTP has installed, 6.5 MW in 2011, working on digestion of waste water, a total of 10 MWe is the total installed capacity in the year Capable of producing GWh yearly. This has a potential primary energy equivalent savings of toe. The Jordan Bio–Gas Company (owned equally by CEGCO and Greater Amman Municipality) has continued to work on the organic waste treatment at the Rusaifa waste land fill. In 2007, the volume of solid and liquid waste treated, reached around 5440 tons, and the amount of electricity generated was 9,494 MWh, The plant consists of two parts, the first part seeks to restrict and use the gas emissions from the Rusaifa landfill for generating energy, and the second part handles the organic waste treatment away from the source. The waste treatment takes place via a special reactor for producing the bio–gas and organic fertilizers.

24 47203 tons of olive cake is generated every year with a rate of increase of 4.5% every year. Used for direct firing for domestic heating, fueling boilers, and in cement industry. The heat content in one kg of olive cake is equivalent to 0.46 kg of crude oil. The olive cake resources is equivalent to 21,241 t.o.e and saving toe in primary energy. Solid Biomass-Olive Cake

25 Hydropower The King Talal Dam has a 10 MW capacity installation, and there is a small hydropower project in Aqaba Water Company, The Khirbit Assamra WWTP installed 2 small micro hydro turbines of 3.5 MW at the inlet of the plant, to utilize the kinetic energy in waste water flows from the height difference between Amman and Zarqa cities. the total capacity of hydropower is 13.5 MWe with output 101 GW.h/year which is potential saving of toe of primary energy. Very small power plants could be developed in the urban water supply systems, but only for very small capacities. The only strong potential seems to be in the canal Red Sea – Dead Sea (600 MW), and in pumping storage in Al-Wehda Dam (200 MW).

27 Conclusions The country has a good potential of RE resources, especially the solar energy. The country has drafted policies and regulations to promote technology deployment, (e.g. the renewable energy and EE has a national priority), The country has ‘Enabling Environment’ to deploy the technology like: The Existence of National Plans for R&D and Innovation, Adequate Human and Financial Resources, The Existence of RE & EE Labs.
