Tuesday، 09 October 2018 - 02:34 PM

The Electricity Ministry, the New and Renewable Energy Authority (NREA) and the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) co-organize the first high-level Renewable Energy Conference, held from October 9 to 11, 2018, with the participation of Electricity Minister Mohammad Shaker and IRENA Director-General Adnan Z. Amin.

The three-day Egypt Renewable Energy Conference seeks to advance renewable development in Egypt and features the release of IRENA’s Egypt Renewable Energy Outlook report, a comprehensive assessment of Egypt’s full renewable energy potential.

Egypt aims to source 20% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2022, rising to 42% by 2035 as it works to meet rising demand for power.

Total installed capacity currently stands at around 3.9 gigawatts, much of which is from hydropower.

The conference brings together investors and national policy makers from Egypt and across the Middle East and North Africa region to advance energy transformation across Egypt as it pursues short and medium-term targets and capitalize on falling technology costs.
