In December 2005 the Egyptian Wind Atlas was issued in cooperation with the Danish RISO Laboratories and the Egyptian Meteorological Authority (EMA) to indicate appropriate and promising areas to benefit from wind energy in generating electricity.
The Atlas redeemed the availability of promising areas endowed with high wind speeds in Gulf of Suez and on both sides of the Nile as well as areas in Sinai which suitable for establishing large projects to generate electricity from wind energy.
Which will qualify for the establishment of major projects to generate electricity from wind power.
The average speed in the Gulf of Suez is about 10.5 m / s at a height of 50 meters
The average speed in the eastern and western parts of the Nile is about 7.5 m / s at an altitude of 80 m
