Coalition of Energy Services Associations (CESA) is a USAID-supported non-profit organization founded by three active Jordanian associations playing a critical role in the energy sector in Jordan; Jordan Green Building Council (JGBC), EDAMA for energy, water and environmental solutions and Renewable Energy Establishment Society (REES).
CESA aims to impact the energy sector in the region, by working with sector stakeholders including energy service providers (ESPs), energy consumers, the government, investors, donors and financing firms.
CESA’s activities are driven by the need to build a thriving market for energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions. It will help consumers to reduce the burden of their energy expenditures, increase the profitability of ESPs, and support the government in its plans to enhance energy efficiency and increase use of renewable energy resources.
Established by CESA and in Collaboration with the US National Association of Energy Services companies (NAESCO) and currently managed by CESA; Etimad® is a voluntary ESP Accreditation program. It is a transparent and rigorous system, built to improve trust between consumers and ESPs – one of the main pillars of market growth for energy solutions. Accredited ESPs will improve the performance of their business, increase their competitiveness, and expand their market opportunities.
As consumers become aware of the value of accreditation, they will seek out accredited ESPs to implement their energy efficiency and renewable energy projects. For more information about the accreditation process, kindly contact Eng. Nermeen Asfour, CESA Business Development Manager.
