Jordan’s Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Jordan Green Ammonia Company (JGA) in their commitment to sustainable energy development.
The MoU, which is the country’s third regarding green hydrogen and green ammonia production, will initiate a year-long feasibility study which will pave the way for a future green hydrogen project.
Jordan’s broader economic modernisation vision for the years 2020-2030 places a strong emphasis on investing in green hydrogen production.
The country aims to build on their established renewable energy sector, and a successful outcome of the study will culminate in a final investment agreement.
According to Minister Kharabsheh, more agreements are set to be signed as part of the country’s hydrogen strategy, which he said “is ready and will be launched shortly.”
Wael Suleiman, the CEO of JGA, said: “Today’s signing ceremony is a symbol of Jordan’s resolute determination to harness its abundant renewable energy resources.
“Our MoU serves as the blueprint for the collaborative efforts between private sector entities and the government to expand the potential of green hydrogen.”
