A series of local and international companies have started the development of the world’s first electric charging plant using solar power in Jordan.

The project aims to provide clean energy resources for the charging of electric vehicles to help the Kingdom reduce its carbon dioxide emissions, and a statement released by El Hassan Science City said that it will also help to develop Jordan’s technology sector through the training of engineers.

Financed by the USAID, the project was selected to be hosted by Jordan due to the country’s abundant renewable energy resources, and also flexible governmental policies that encourage the development of renewable energy resources.
