The Higher Council For Science And Technology (HCST)
Converting the Building of the Higher Council for Science & Technology into an Eco/Green Building

The Higher Council for Science and Technology (HCST), obtained the approval of the European Union Delegation in Amman to support converting the HCST building into eco/green building, using renewable energy technologies and energy efficiency.


The financial support for this project is $ 750 thousand Euros, which is within the programme “Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Demonstration projects (REEED)” managed by the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources.


It should be noted that the project will reduce the building’s energy bill by utilizing solar energy and geothermal energy, using energy saving lamps, improving thermal insulation of the building and waste water treatment. The project will also reduce environmental impact through replacing the polluting technologies with environmentally friendly and more efficient ones.


Data about energy consumption before and after implementation of this project will be made available to researchers and professionals concerned in the fields of construction, renewable energy technologies, and energy efficiency, for the purpose of calculating the feasibility of similar projects, and design of green buildings in the public and private sectors.
