Jordan’s use of renewable energy increased last year vis-a-vis natural gas. 

In 2021, renewable energy accounted for 26% of Jordan’s energy production, compared to 73% from natural gas. By comparison, renewable energy accounted for 20% of Jordan’s energy production in 2020, Jordan’s official Petra news agency reported today.
