Yellow Door Energy (YDE) is the market leader in Jordan for Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) solar and energy efficiency solutions. The company’s projects enable customers to reduce energy costs, improve power reliability and lower carbon emissions. In January 2019, the company announced it has raised $65 million in Series A financing from global investors IFC, Mitsui, Equinor, APICORP and Adenium.
The company’s customers come from different industries and their projects range in size from 300 kW to 18 MW. Select customers include Umniah, The Specialty Hospital and Istiklal Mall. Thanks
to Jordan’s wheeling regulation, these customers receive solar power from YDE’s solar parks located outside city centers. As the BOT solar provider, Yellow Door Energy invests in, designs, constructs, commissions, operates and maintains the solar parks.
YDE was founded in 2015 as an investment from Adenium Energy Capital, a leading Middle East solar investor that has developed and financed over 300 MW of solar PV assets worldwide. As the market-leading solar developer, YDE is an active member of EDAMA Jordan, Dii Desert Energy and Middle East Solar Industry Association (MESIA). YDE representatives regularly speak at industry conferences to share best practices in developing successful solar projects in the MENA region.
