Event Summary:
Join the U.S. Commercial Service for a Webinar on the renewable energy and power generation sectors in Egypt. This Webinar provides an overview of the rapidly evolving policy landscape in Egypt, outlines key opportunities and challenges Egypt has in meeting energy consumption demands and explains how this will lead to greater opportunities for U.S. renewable energy and power generation companies.

Egypt represents the Middle East's most populated energy market and is the largest oil and gas consumer on the African continent. Despite political upheaval, Egypt remains an attractive destination in the renewables market, worth over $15 billion. Egypt's government aims to diversify the energy mix in favor of renewable energy resources and has set a target of 20% of generated electricity from renewable energy by 2022, up from 12%.

In parallel, Egypt remains an attractive destination in the power market as it works toward improving energy efficiency and upgrading transmission and distribution stations to accommodate new capacities coming online. While 94% of total primary energy consumption in Egypt is from fossil fuels, the government aims to diversify the energy mix in favor of power generation.
