Jordan lacks natural resources such as coal reserves, commercially viable oil deposits, and natural gas, meaning that it must depend on imported fossil fuel for power generation. The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR) is the apex body for the energy sector. In 2005, the National Energy Efficiency Strategy came into play, aiming to reduce dependence on imported products and boost renewable energy infrastructure through 600-1,000 Megawatts (MW) of wind energy, 300-600 MW of solar energy, and 30-50 MW of energy from waste. The Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Law, which came into force in 2010, increased focus and investment in renewable energy sources. The country is now exploiting its wind power potential, and eight upcoming projects are expected to come online in Ma'an, Tafilah, Amman, and Aqaba in the future.
