E/ESCWA/SDPD/2014/Technical Paper.1
Issued in: 

The project “Enhancing and Improving Access to Energy Services through Development of PublicPrivate Renewable Energy Partnerships” seeks to build the capacity of governments and other stakeholders of PPPs for promoting renewable energy services in rural areas. Different types of PPPs will be examined evaluated in different regions/areas based on economic and social conditions. The project aims to focus on countries with special needs, taking into account experiences from different regions. The project is expected to demonstrate to stakeholders, particularly the private sector, the benefits of PPP. ESCWA selected Jordan from among other countries in the region for the implementation of the project in the region. This report is prepared as a deliverable for the project according to the signed agreement between RSS and UN-ESCWA. Seven Jordanian case studies on Renewable Energy Public Private Partnerships (RE/PPPs) were selected to be surveyed to address their challenges and potential solutions.
