Abstract

This study presents an analysis of the energy and exergy utilisation of the Jordanian urban residential sector by considering the flows of energy and exergy through the main end uses and applications in Jordanian households. To achieve this purpose, a survey covering 200 households was conducted and energy consumption data were gathered. Exergy analysis of Jordanian urban residential sector utilisation indicates a less efficient picture than that obtained by the energy analysis. Energy and exergy efficiencies were found to be equal to 66.6% and 15.4%, respectively.
