Bylaw in Jordan

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on January 6, 2015
In 2012, the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources along with the National Energy Research Center in Jordan approved a solar bylaw which entered into force in April 2013 (see the attached document). According to Article 10 of Law No. 73, solar water heaters are a mandatory requirement for every new multi-family building with more than 150 m² of living space, for every new office building exceeding 100 m² of floor space, as well as each new public building with more than 250 m². The bylaw encourages spreading the national awareness in the field of conservation of energy and improvement of its efficiency and helps establishing a database related to conservation of energy and improvement of its efficiency. There are, however, no additional regulations regarding quality standards or system sizes.
