Increasing Energy Efficiency in Water Supply in Jordan
Jordan is characterized by severe water scarcity and unsustainable, energy-intensive ground water use practices. Within the framework of the International Climate Initiative, GIZ has implemented a project to increase energy efficiency in water supply. With the help of two pilot projects, Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) was identified as a suitable business model to finance the modern ization of water pumps. EPC in the water sector is well applicable to other countries as well and can achieve efficiency gains of over 30 % and thus contribute to a substantial mitigation of greenhouse gases.
