ESMES in Jordan awards a school so that it can improve its energy efficiency



One of ESMES project goals is to raise students’ awareness on the importance of adopting an adequate sustainable energy behavior and to reduce schools’ energy consumption.

In this regard, after the training received by the Energy Teams in the schools, the 10th School for Girls in Aqaba, Jordan had to design an energy rehabilitation proposal, to be submitted to a competition with other schools and evaluated by a committee composed by the German Jordanian University (GJU) and the Ministry of Education of Jordan (MoE). 

Few months later, the 10th School for Girls had performed better in terms of the applicability and quality of the energy saving proposal, presenting the best strategy in terms of energy management reduction and the lowest energy consumption. It received the highest score in the school’s need analysis, to be awarded a 60.000 euros through a subcontracting of a company that will perform the works: the installation of LED lighting in the hallways, laboratories and classrooms, the installation of high efficiency inverter AC units, as well as the maintenance and upkeep of the older AC units in use.

On the 26th December 2022, the GJU team visited the 10th School for Girls to inspect and receive works from for the subcontract awarded to the school. The tender commissioning and hand over committee included the Ministry of Education, audit bureau and the GJU project team.

Congratulations to the school!
