Jordan has adopted an Energy Strategy for 2020-30, which aims at diversifying energy forms, increasing the contribution of indigenous energy sources, improving energy efficiency in all sectors and reducing the impact of energy costs on the national economy. The Strategy also calls for Jordan to be self-reliant, to reduce energy costs for local consumers, to diversify and increase reliance on local energy sources, and to reduce energy imports.
To this end, the Strategy targets to increase the proportion of electricity generated from local sources from 15% in 2019 to 48.5% in 2030, and increase renewable energy’s share of the entire energy mix from 11 per cent in 2020 to 14 per cent by 2030. While the Strategy considers the evolution of the energy sector out to 2050, it does not include quantitative projections or targets in this respect.
To support Jordan with the implementation of the Strategy, the EBRD intends to develop a sectoral low carbon and climate resilient pathway (“low carbon pathway” or “LCP”) for the power sector. The LCP will provide a set of detailed sector-specific policy and technology recommendations to define and implement a low-carbon pathway, ensure Paris Alignment and provide clear indications about the priorities of investment and sustainable development for the sector towards a deep decarbonisation and climate resilience in the mid to long-term future.

Access to Information Policy (AIP)
The AIP sets out how the EBRD discloses information and consults with its stakeholders so as to promote better awareness and understanding of its strategies, policies and operations following its entry into force on 1 January 2020. Please visit the Access to Information Policy page to find out what information is available from the EBRD website.
Specific requests for information can be made using the EBRD Enquiries form
Independent Project Accountability Mechanism (IPAM)
If efforts to address environmental, social or public disclosure concerns with the Client or the Bank are unsuccessful (e.g. through the Client’s Project-level grievance mechanism or through direct engagement with Bank management), individuals and organisations may seek to address their concerns through the EBRD’s Independent Project Accountability Mechanism (IPAM).
IPAM independently reviews Project issues that are believed to have caused (or to be likely to cause) harm. The purpose of the Mechanism is: to support dialogue between Project stakeholders to resolve environmental, social and public disclosure issues; to determine whether the Bank has complied with its Environmental and Social Policy or Project-specific provisions of its Access to Information Policy; and where applicable, to address any existing non-compliance with these policies, while preventing future non-compliance by the Bank.
Please visit the Independent Project Accountability Mechanism webpage to find out more about IPAM and its mandate; how to submit a Request for review; or contact IPAM via email email@example.com to get guidance and more information on IPAM and how to submit a request.
