Egypt Solar Energy Forum 2018

2017 is set to be a remarkable year for Egyptian solar industry with a record investment of US$ 1.8 billion pouring into the sector.

The Egyptian government has committed to increasing its share of renewables in the country’s power mix to 20% by 2022 and 37% by 2035. At present, the nation only sources around 3% of its electricity generation from renewables.

Recently, the EBRD board of directors approved 500 million US$ financial support to build 13 solar projects, AIIB’s also backed its solar power project development by offering 210 million US$ support to finance 11 solar projects in the country. Norway based Scatec Solar also closed its financing deal of 400 MW solar projects in Egypt. With improved regulatory environment and right policy in place, we will see more and more investor s entering this market.

With this in mind, the Egypt Solar Energy Forum 2018 aims to bring together industry leaders, regulators, investors, EPCs, consultancies and solution providers to Cairo to discuss the latest development of Egyptian solar market, and challenges facing the industry.

Key areas to be discussed:

– Policy and market trends;

– Off-grid solar power market evaluation and opportunities;
– CSP and PV Solar technology and innovations;
– Solar and energy storage;
