Project Description:


The Energy Efficiency in Public Buildings (EEPB) program aims at improving energy efficiency in public buildings in Jordan for the Ministry of Education (MoE, mainly schools) and Ministry of Health (MoH, mainly hospitals and health stations) and Ministry of Public Works and Housing (MoPWH, mainly office buildings), in total around 3200 schools, 350 health stations, 30 hospitals and 70 other public buildings.

KfW provides a loan of 15 million Euros to the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan with MoPWH as the program executing agency, to finance technical measures concerning energy efficiency in these buildings. The Energy Saving Measures (ESM) mainly includes improvements and/or replacements of electro/mechanical systems, such as lighting, hot water, heating and air conditioning systems.

Energy consumption depends not only on the efficiency of the equipment but also on the "human" factors. Operation, maintenance and repair are very important. One of the goals of the accompanying measure will be to establish structures to ensure energy efficient operation of the installed equipment.
In the long run, the program aims at introducing energy efficiency as an important aspect to be considered in all procurement, construction and rehabilitation measures as well as in operation and maintenance of public buildings.

The overall program objective is to contribute to climate protection and to reduce the budget constraints caused by high-energy costs of the Government of Jordan.

Indicator: Reduction of CO2-emissions between 15.000 and 20.000 t/a

The Program objective is to increase the energy efficiency in public buildings.

Indicator: The average reduction of energy consumption of the implemented technologies is at least 15% of the current (equipment's) consumption.

Within the KfW program framework the payback time of the total package of the Energy Saving Measures has to be around 5 years. Incidental, effective energy saving measures can have a longer payback time, of around program consists of two phases, a Pilot and a Roll-out Phase.

Five Pilot Projects have been selected for the installation of a first saving measures, and to be a project for the relevant Ministries to prom, Project and test different technologies:

• AI Nadeem hospital in Madaba - MoH
• AI Basheer Hospital -Obstetrics building - MoH
• Amman Comprehensive Health Center - MoH
• Thoqan Hindawy school for boys- MoE
• MoPWH building – MoPWH

The following energy saving measures are agreed with MPWH for tender development:

1. Lighting (lamp and fixture) replacement
2. VRF (MPWH only)
3. Photo Voltaic
4. Heating System Improvement - Distribution System Maintenance, Boiler Calibration, Thermostatic valves.
5. A/C Split Unit replacement to inverter type
6. DHW Solar Thermal collectors
7. Energy Monitoring System
