After a period when electricity shortages and black-outs were a regular occurrence in Egypt, we are now entering an exciting period in the Egyptian energy sector, despite the challenges of the prevailing economic climate.

Government initiatives to prioritise electricity provision to residential and commercial areas and the emergence of the private sector in generating electricity to more remote areas have helped to improve the situation.

Progress has been in the right direction but the future has the potential to be even brighter as the government continues its drive to generate 20% of electricity from renewable sources by 2020, according to the New and Renewable Energy Authority (NREA).
