Mise en place d'un système de froid solaire en Jordanie (en anglais)

Quatre sites de Jordanie sont désormais équippés de refroidisseurs à absorption solaire.
Under a EUR 4.3 million programme funded by the German international cooperation agency (GIZ) to introduce solar cooling technology to Jordan and the region, four sites in Jordan are now equipped with solar absorption chillers: the German Jordanian University and the Royal Cultural Centre in Amman, Petra Guest House and Irbid Chamber of Commerce.

The Jordan Minister of Environment Yaseen Khayyat stressed that these “state-of-the-art systems will not only reduce power consumption and encourage the use of renewable energy resources, but will also serve as a reference for researchers and experts in the field, as it is the first of its kind to be implemented among developing countries” .

Ministry officials underscored that solar thermal systems provide decentralised fuel-saving solutions for the Kingdom, especially since 98% of its energy demand is imported at high costs.

Jordan, which has 330 days of sunshine per year, has one of the highest annual daily averages of solar irradiance in the world, according to official figures.
