  • 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).

    In 2007 the country put forward the "Energy Master Plan", a 20-year energy plan involving ...

  • Energy Supply


    Jordan is relatively poor in conventional energy resources (gas reserves estimated at 6 bcm and very low hydroelectric potential).

    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.

    Jordan also has ...

  • Energy Prices


    Electricity prices have been rationalised. The average price of electricity for households is US$12.1c/kWh and for industry US$12.6c/kWh (2019).


  • Energy Consumption

    Consumption per capita is 0.9 toe/cap, including 1 750 kWh of electricity (2018).

    The country's overall consumption (9 Mtoe in 2018) increased by 4%/year between 2000 and 2017 and decreased in 2018 (-4%).

    Oil is the country's main energy source, with 54% of total consumption, followed by natural gas with 38%.


  • Issues & Prospects

    In its 2007 Master Plan, MEMR overestimated the energy demand growth and the supply of alternative resources up to 2020 (total energy demand growth of 5.5%/year, 10% of renewables, 14% of oil shale and 6% of nuclear). It considered a stable share of gas (29% in 2020), which will increase due to additional availabilities.
