of a Smart Grid provides utilities and their customers with a significant
improvement in power reliability and services; to date, Smart Grid in Jordan is
still in infant stage. In this paper we will present the Smart grid policy and
law in Jordan by studying Tafila smart grid as a case study. One can see
variety of problems and challenges in the field of Smart Grid. Hence, this
paper can provide a help to find a new research point in this field. Also in
this paper we try to recommend develop implementation strategy that will help
to generate appropriate smart grid & Energy Efficiency Law.
