on

It is the 21st century and the world has finally realized the magnificent importance of renewable energy. Recently, many countries are jumping on the clean energy train and are joining forces to shift from nonrenewable energy to a cleaner, more sustainable energy. Not only renewable energy is cheaper, has no limit and available all the time, it is also eco-friendly. With what our planet is going through right now, we definitely need that drastic change as soon as possible.

Egypt’s New and Renewable Energy Authority (NREA) has just signed a soft loan agreement with the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) worth 106$ million dollars to set off the very first solar plant in Egypt, specifically in Hurghada.

Currently, the NREA is in the process to select a qualified and suitable contractor to carry out this huge project; and hopefully the process will be done by next September.

The plant is meant to generate power through solar energy to be stored and used during peak hours and night time. The project is the first of its kind in Egypt, it is stated that the project will be up and running by mid- 2019.
