The municipality of Sahab in Jordan, which is taking part in the EU-funded SUDEP South sustainable energy project, has presented the success of the project in meeting the environmental, economic and demographic challenges that the town is facing to a German business delegation visiting Jordan. Several international stakeholders such as the German-Arab Chamber of Industry and Commerce, the German RETech Partnership e.V. and the German Solar Association (BSW) participated in the field mission organised by the project “Responsible and Inclusive Business Hubs (RIBH)”.
The EU funded SUDEP South project for Sahab municipality has a budget of €719,000 for implementing Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency measures throughout municipal buildings, schools and mosques for the reduction of the operational cost of energy at these locations.
The SUDEP-South project began in early 2015 with 12 cities in 6 countries of the southern Mediterranean. The objective of the SUDEP Programme is to assist local authorities in responding to the sustainable energy challenges and to enable them to implement sustainable energy actions leading to energy savings, energy efficiency and more use of renewable energy sources such as solar energy.
