Ammon News - Director of the Renewable Energy and Rationalization Fund at the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, Rasmi Hamza, disclosed that a thorough technical review of the electrical grid within the Kingdom is underway.

This review is aimed at identifying ways to enhance network efficiency and transition to smart grids. The initiative will be paired with a broad-based project to upgrade conventional meters to smart meters, in collaboration with power distribution companies. The overarching goal is to enhance voltage performance and minimize electrical losses.

Speaking at a symposium hosted by the German University on Thursday, Hamza shared that the ministry's objective aligns with Jordan's economic vision for 2023, specifically in terms of boosting the share of renewable energy and modernizing high and medium-voltage power transmission networks into smart grids, and expanding infrastructure for electric vehicle charging systems.

Hamza underscored the need for a robust and sustainable power system in order to progress with the development and deployment of an advanced, resilient electrical infrastructure. This advancement, he said, will harness cutting-edge global technology to facilitate a smooth transition in the energy landscape.

Hamza emphasized the importance of awareness among sector partners regarding the need to stabilize the Kingdom's electrical system, especially in light of efforts to transition towards reliance on clean energy sources by 2050.

He expressed gratitude for the contributions of partners such as the German Agency for International Cooperation, the US Agency for Development, the European Union, and the French Development Agency.

These partners have offered valuable technical and financial support to enhance efficiency in government institutions operating in the sector and assisted them in developing plans and technical studies crucial for a seamless energy transition across various sectors, he noted.
