Executive Summary

·   As part of the JCP, various opportunities exist within the Clean Technologyclusterin Jordanwith a large estimated impact:

o   Gross value add of USD 5.1 Billion

o   Direct technical multiplier of 260%

o   26,000 jobs created (direct and indirect)

·   The opportunities are defined around four priority clusters

o   Renewable energy

o   Energy efficiency

o   Waste management

o   Water management

·   The opportunities aim to address Jordan’s critical scarce resource constraints and set priorities for prosperitywith several national challenges to be addressed such as:

o   Internal resource constraints

o   Growing knowledge economy sectors outside Amman

o   Internal unemployment

o   Energy dependency

o   Regional instability and influx of refugees

o   Low female labor participation rate

Key Findings

·   Within the Clean Technology cluster, four focus areas have been identified for Jordan with several subsectors within each:

o   Renewable Energy with six key subsectors: Solar PV, Solar CSP, Solar thermal, Wind, Investment and technical services

o   Energy Efficiency with six subsectors: Green Construction & HVAC, Grid analytics, energy management, efficient electrical appliances, technical services and on-farm efficiency

o   Waste Management with seven subsectors: Food & Organic Waste optimization, Non organic clean waste recycling, remanufacture & refurbishing, oil re-use, technical services, olive residue treatment and bio solids

o   Water Management with eight subsectors: water conveyance and dissipation, natural water system and QM2, water efficient agriculture, treatment (water production), desalination (water production), training and extension, chemical manufacturing and technical services

·   Jobs are expected to be created mostlywithin the Energy Efficiency and Water Management

Recommended Actions and Initiatives

Renewable Energy

·   16 opportunities were identified with an estimate that the government could save up to ~USD360 million and 3,440 total barrels of oil imported if the opportunities are pursued

·   Four key opportunities are highlighted with high job creation potential:

o   Install 400 MW solar PV panels locally

o   Provide renewable energy engineering and consultancy services (SME and large scale)

o   Assemble and customize 100% of local demand for wind turbine sub-components

o   Increase number of residential buildings with solar water heaters from 11% to 25%

 

Energy Efficiency

·   14 opportunities were identified with an estimate that the government could save up to ~USD175 million and ~1,685 total barrels of oil imported if the opportunities are pursued

·   Five key opportunities are highlighted with high job creation potential:

o   Retrofit 5% of existing building space

o   Provide energy management solutions for 50% of government and commercial buildings (including energy management systems)

o   Design and construct energy efficient buildings for 20% of new build-up area

o   Perform building energy audits for 50% of buildings for SMEs and large scale

o   Provide training to 50% of local engineers and architects annually

 

Waste Management

·   17 opportunities were identified with an estimate that the government could save up to ~USD63 million and ~2,045 ton of waste if the opportunities are pursued

·   Five key opportunities are highlighted with high job creation potential:

o   Extract 100% of high value materials (steel, aluminium, tires, plastic, glass, demolition waste) for recycling in regional markets

o   Compost 700 k ton of organic waste per year (80% of total organic waste)

o   Construct incineration facilities with waste-to-energy functionality for leftover waste (30% organic)

o   Construct modern waste and recycling facility for 300,000 tons of material (mechanical treatment, sorting, autoclave, composting, hazardous waste treatment)

o   Provide end to end waste management solutions to 1,000 customers in the region

 

Water Management

·   18 opportunities were identified with an estimate that the government could save up to ~USD89 million and ~285 mn m3 water if the opportunities are pursued

·   Six key opportunities are highlighted with high job creation potential:

o   Retrofit 50% of current 720 hectares of greenhouses with modern climate control systems

o   Construct 500 mn m3 of desalination capacity

o   Provide engineering, consultancy and end to end water management solutions to 50 large projects in the region

o   Construct 110 mn m3 of wastewater treatment capacity

o   Manufacture 50% of drip irrigation systems envisioned

o   Manufacturing of treatment chemicals for desalination and wastewater treatment
