This initiative is part of the broader "Water and Energy" project, which is funded by the European Union and promotes cross-border cooperation among Mediterranean countries. The Chamber has partnered with Greece, Egypt, Lebanon, Spain, and Italy for this project, the Jordan News Agency, Petra reported.

During the inauguration ceremony, JCC announced that The Aqaba Chamber of Commerce building has been selected as the host for a project that generates cooling energy. By leveraging chillers to cool water and subsequently decrease the temperature of the air, this project aims to reduce reliance on electrical energy sources, and lower overall costs.

In collaboration with partners, the Chamber has conducted a local market survey and initiated a training program to assess resource efficiency services and equip trainers in the sustainable energy sector. The Chamber emphasizes the global trend of renewable energy and the importance of economic stimulation and cost reduction to benefit citizens.

Several agreements have been signed to implement and oversee the installation of a solar energy cooling system, in partnership with the Royal Scientific Society through the National Center for Energy Research.
