The scarcity of water- food- energy nexus resources has a very huge impact on the socioeconomic future in the world generally and in Jordan specifically. In Jordan, the annual consumption of energy is approximately equivalent to 20,000 GWh, which is mostly imported in the form of petroleum products. The water sector accounts for 15% of this consumption. An analytical research to study the energy status in water sector in Jordan will be presented. It will show the current energy consumption profile, investigating potential of energy efficiency improvements, and estimating potential savings. Economically feasible measures will be proposed and possible reductions in CO2 will be estimated.
