AMMAN — Jordan participated in the International Energy Forum (IEF) that concluded on Thursday in New Delhi, which mainly focused on the future of global energy security.

Energy Minister Saleh Kharabsheh, who headed the Jordanian delegation to the event, said that Jordan succeeded in attracting $2-billion investments to the sector, in a move that seeks to increase its contribution to the total energy mix to 20 per cent by 2025, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

To serve this end, the Kingdom endorsed the Renewable Energy Law and other relevant bylaws, which resulted in generating some 2,000 megawatts of electricity from solar and wind projects, with a total investment volume of more than $2 billion despite surrounding political conditions, he pointed out.

Established in 1991, IEF aims to foster greater mutual understanding and awareness of common energy interests among its 72 member countries.
