Egypt successfully produced 6,000 MW of electricity from renewable resources, as it seeks to boost the renewable energy share in the country’s energy mix. Of the 6,000 MW of renewable energy power generated, 2,000 MW is generated by solar and wind farms according to Mohamed El-Khayat, the Executive Chairman of the New and Renewable Energy Authority (NREA).


Through its 20 solar plants, the Benban solar park has been added to the national electricity grid with a capacity of 900 MW, El-Khayat stated, adding that the total number of stations planned to be built in the solar park stands at 32 stations with a total capacity of 1,465 MW.

“Egypt has attracted a lot of investments in the renewable energy sector, which resulted in flourishing the economy, especially as all projects attracted foreign currency inflows,” El- Khayat noted.
