As part of a framework contract for renewable energy and energy efficiency projects in the SEMED region, ECA developed a national plan for the integration of solar water heaters (SWH) in Jordan. The team recommended on the financial viability of SWH development and the level of subsidy requirements, on the economic viability of SWH dissemination and on a viable business model for the greater integration of SWH and the role for EBRD credit guarantees. The recommendations were used to develop a national SWH programme and to clarify the role of EBRD in the SWH market in Jordan.
