A farmhouse in Jordan is hoping to reduce its fuel usage for heating by at least 20% as a result of energy efficiency upgrades.
Poultry producer Al Jazeera is installing high-efficiency heating systems which is expected to reduce the use of diesel as well as its operating costs.
The company is being supported by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development’s (EBRD) $180,000 (£116,984) grant.
It is part of the organisation’s Finance and Technology Transfer Centre for Climate Change (FINTECC) programme.
Terry McCallion, Director of the EBRD’s Energy Efficiency and Climate Change team said: “There is an increasing demand in the region for cost-effective energy efficiency solutions. We designed FINTECC to accelerate the deployment of advanced resource efficiency technologies and to support the development of their supply chains.
“This investment will act as a regional demonstrator of the cost and environmental savings that are possible through installation of the right technologies.”
