The objective of Egypt - PV is to remove the barriers to increased power generation by small, decentralized, grid-connected PV systems. The project strategy builds on the planned Government initiatives to develop a market for small, decentralized renewable energy power generation by ensuring adequate returns on targeted private sector investments.
The project will catalyze the development of decentralized, grid-connected small-scale renewable energy (RE) power generation market in Egypt and the solar PV in particular. The target is to facilitate the installation of new decentralized PV resulting in direct GHG reduction benefits of 66 kilo-tones of CO2eq during the lifetime of the project. Complementary indirect mitigation benefits are expected from the sustained market growth of the PV market after the project with estimated GHG reduction of about 0.6-0.7 million tons of CO2eq.
Energy Efficiency in Egypt
Energy efficiency and conservation in Egypt became one of the most important options to face the expected shortage of electricity. According to Egyptian Electricity Holding Company (EEHC) statistics, lighting accounts for about 20% of Egypt’s total electricity consumption, out of which 5% attributed to street lighting consumption.
Increasing efficiency of street lighting in Egypt through the replacement of existing lighting systems by efficient ones in compliance with national efficient lighting technical specifications and codes will have an impact on reducing energy consumption and accordingly GHG emissions, in addition to deferring energy investments needed for the addition of new generation capacities and fuel consumption.
Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy plan in the New Capital
New capital city is located 35 KM east of Cairo of a total area of 170,000 feddan which lies between the regional ring road, the Cairo-Suez road and Cairo-El Ain El Sokhna road. The new capital city will help to strengthen and diversify the country’s economic potential by creating new places to live, work and visit. In order to draw people to this new capital city, a series of key catalyst developments will be established at its core. This will include a new government administrative district, a cultural district and a wide variety of urban neighbourhoods.
The new capital is planning to implement an energy efficiency and renewable energy plan. One of the actions of this plan is to develop an efficient LED street lighting powered by solar energy in the new government administrative district.
