With support from USAID/Jordan, USEA has implemented the Electric Utility Distribution and Transmission Partnership Program for Jordan. In 2011, Jordan’s national transmission company NEPCO signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Arizona Public Service (APS) to formalize their partnership to improve strategic planning and governance, integrated resource and capacity planning and human resources. USEA organized two executive exchanges between APS and NEPCO on integrating renewable energy into Jordan’s transmission system, governance and HR/training.
Also in 2011, Jordan’s electric distribution companies, EDCO, IDECO and JEPCO, signed an MOU with the Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) solidifying their partnership on energy efficiency programs and integrating renewables into the distribution grid. USEA organized two executive exchanges between the partners on energy efficiency programs, safety and training.
