Renewable energy uses natural resources such as wind, sunlight, tides, and geothermal heat which are naturally replenished.
The following are the most important activities and achievements in the field of new and renewable Energy:
CEGCO continues to exploit wind energy to generate electrical power in Hofa and Ibrahimia power stations, where total generated sold power was (2.25) GWh, which participated in the cost reduction of power generation in CEGCO stations an amount of (284289) JD in 2012.
The Biogas company (owned equally between Central electricity Generating Company and Great Amman Municipality) continues to work on its plans and programs for 2012, which aim to achieve the highest levels of productive services of electricity power and developmental services through extracting the larger possible quantity of gas resulted from organic waste treatment in the dump located at Alrusayfa, where the quantity of methane gas generated from waste treatment, and limited from being emitted to atmosphere in 2012 was around (5539950) m3 and the total operating hours of the generating units were (6429) hours. The total generated power during 2012 was (5831) MWh and CEGCO was able to achieve a reduction of (100000) Ton of CO2 starting from 9/12/2009 to 31/12/2012 and having financial returns through United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
