Environmental and Social Impact Assessment for +83MW Wind Energy Project, Jordan

Green Watts Renewable Energy Co. L.L.C
2012 - 2013

ECO Consult was commissioned by Green Watts Renewable Energy Co. L.L.C to conduct an Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) Study for an +83MW Wind Energy Project in Al Rajef area in Ma’an Governorate.

The ESIA will describe the baseline conditions and complete a comprehensive assessment of the environment within the project area including birds and bats, biodiversity, air quality, noise, water resources, infrastructure, land use, and socio-economic conditions. The study will also identify both national and international regulatory requirements that the project has to comply with. Impacts associated with the construction, operation, and decommissioning of the project will be also assessed and identified, along with recommendations for mitigation measures that aim at reducing the project’s impacts in all development phases to acceptable levels. The study will produce an environmental and social management plan that will specify monitoring requirements for the project and will be compliant with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) standards and guidelines for environmental and social protection.
