NSMC begins renewable energy projects in Jordan
The NSMC will be working with the King Hussein Foundation in Jordan over the next 12 months to develop three community renewable energy programmes. Currently Jordan has to import 97% of its energy so there is a real effort going on by all actors in the sector to increase the size of the renewable energy sector. The communities in Beni Kanana, Tafilaha and Amman will receive social marketing and advocacy training which will enable them to develop their own community projects. Funding is being provided by the European Union to implement these new initiatives.
