The vision for Egypt is to increase share of renewable energy by 2020.  In 2015, Minister of Electricity Mohamed Shaker put forth a feed-in-tariff scheme to promote the development of renewable energy in Egypt. As a result, a 4,300 MW quota for installed solar and wind was established in a first round of discussions. A MoU has already been signed in Sharm El-Sheikh’s Economic Summit in March for producing 50 MW in the Benban area and with more MOUs expected to be finalised this year.

With the pending financial close expected in October 2016 for the first round, the immediate plans for 2000 MW to be installed over the next two years up and a further 9,000 MW of solar planned until 2022, developers and industry stakeholders will need to discuss the key issues relating the to the successful delivery and construction of solar energy plants including the provision of utilities (roads, water and other infrastructure requirements), currency and risk mitigation strategies, security as well as staff accommodation requirements.

Solar Projects Egypt 2016 will discuss these practical issues including permits, logistics, grid connection, water and security needs prior to the construction phase as well as the 2nd round of the Solar Fit program.

Exellent Opportunities For The Solar Energy Sector

  • The New and Renewable Energy Authority (NREA) estimates that the feed-in tariff project will cost US$1.5m per photovoltaic megawatt and $1.3m per megawatt of wind power.
  • Egypt has captured the headlines and attention of the solar industry, with 2.3 GW of power to be generated by photovoltaic energy in the next couple of years.
  • Government invited local and international companies to participate in a feed-in tariff (FIT) program launched for 4,300 MW of solar and wind by 2017.
  • Egypt wants to add about 6 GW of solar over the next seven years (to 2022), and 2 GW of that could be installed in the next two years (to 2017).
  • Egypt's five year plan to increase renewable energy to 20% of its total energy production includes the introduction of a new feed-in tariff system aimed at encouraging private investment and the ambitious multi-billion Solar FIT program.

The ACM Interface+ Format

The ACM Interface+ conference format is designed to optimise the valuable and finite time our busy delegations can dedicate to being out of the office while also enhancing their enjoyment of the ACM on-site experience. Specifically tailored to our region of operations here in the Middle East, the Interface+ format maximises networking opportunities, facilitating the building of profitable relationships within the context of a dynamic, efficient and relevant learning environment.

ACM conference days, using the Interface+ format, have an earlier start than conventional agendas and conclude with a late lunch. The conference sessions are regularly punctuated by refreshment and networking breaks to allow for unhurried face-to-face interaction between peers, colleagues and business prospects. The mid-afternoon conclusion of our formal conference agenda allows for government representatives and busy executives to adjourn earlier in the day, having still enjoyed a full and rich programme of content. Post-lunch, ACM will offer additional, optional learning and networking opportunities in the shape of workshops, product demonstrations, technology launches, site visits, pre-arranged 1-2-1 business meetings and hosted receptions.

Interface+ makes timing sense for our delegates and business sense for our sponsors.
