Amani Azzam, the secretary general of the ministry of energy, stated that the goal of the meeting was to strengthen Jordanian-German energy cooperation and to open new markets for business investments in both nations.

In the presence of German Ambassador Bernhard Kampmann, Azzam highlighted ongoing bilateral partnership projects, including a study to expand renewable energy capacity in power grids, a roadmap project for hydrogen usage and legislation in Jordan, and a project to promote innovation in the energy sector.

The council is working to set up a meeting between German and Jordanian private and public sector representatives in order to discuss investment and cooperation opportunities in the Jordanian energy sector and find long-term, cost-effective, and reliable power sources for the Kingdom.

The Jordanian-German Energy Partnership was founded on a joint declaration of intent signed in 2019 by the Jordanian and German governments.

Jordan is one of 20 countries that have established energy partnerships with Germany in order to stimulate dialogue and exchange expertise among decision makers, the business sector, academia, and civil society in order to accelerate the transition to renewable energy.

The Jordanian-German Energy Partnership is managed by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action and the Jordanian Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources.
