Résumé
Five sites were selected in different regions of Jordan (north-Hofa, north-Ibrahimya, middle-Tafila, middle-Fujaij, and south-Aqaba). Measurements by the National Energy Research Centre (NERC) where collected for many years, these measurements were evaluated in order to have an overview about the potential of wind resources in Jordan and to compare the different potentials for these sites. Those measurements were raw data of the average wind speed and wind direction. A wind farm was designed in each of the selected site by using the Wind PRO software and then technical and financial assessments were carried out. Those assessments have proved that the wind energy project can be a successfully project in Jordan and they are very attractive to investors. The Aqaba wind farm has shown that it is the best when compared with the other selected sites while the Tafila wind farm is in second place. Those two sites are likely the most promising sites to continue achieving the target of supplying Jordan with cheap and reliable energy. Also, they compensate each other depending on the season. Moreover, the two scenarios are suggested to achieve the Jordanian target 1000MW of wind energy by 2020 according to this thesis’ results
