||Since 1970s, Ministry of Electricity & Energy
has given due consideration to the Renewable
Energy (RE) resources.
In early 1980s,a renewable energy strategy was
formulated as an integral part of the national energy
planning in Egypt. Such strategy has been revised in
view of the projections for possible RE technologies/application
options, available financing sources and investment opportunities
in the field.
strategy targets to satisfy 20% of the electric energy demand from
renewable energy resources, by the year 2020, including about 12%
from wind power , 8% from others RE sources ( hydro power ,
solar energy , ....... ).
