Bids will be handled under the "direct proposal" process, whereby private-sector developers can submit projects without going through a tender.

Submissions must be in by February, with a decision announced six months later. Preferred candidates will then carry out feasibility studies, including resource assessment, grid connection and negotiating land-access rights.

If all goes well, they will then sign a power purchase agreement for a 20-25 year term at the agreed price, capped at JD0.085/kWh (€0.114/kWh).

The previous call for projects was cancelled due to lack of grid capacity. However, work has now started on a grid upgrade, slated for completion in 2018.

Jordan is aiming at 1.2GW of operating wind capacity by 2020.
