Egypt Power Market 2021-2035: Power Procurement is Evolving to Meet New Government Priorities

Dublin, May 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Egypt Power Report 2021” report has been added to’s offering.

Egypt’s power sector is evolving with extraordinary rapidity and the focus has switched forcibly towards renewables.

The Egypt Power Report 2021 is a comprehensive guide to the risks, realities, opportunities, and threats associated with entering Egypt’s electricity industry.

The report makes a detailed examination of the government’s power sector priorities as it plans for the next phase of procurement and examines the opportunities and challenges facing the electricity supply industry, including the impact of coronavirus on demand growth and sectoral reforms and the government’s ambitious renewable generation targets.

The report examines sector opportunities, including:

  • An imminent opening of a secondary market for the solar FiT project.
  • Progress towards the potential sale of three 4.8GW gas-to-power (GTP) plants and the alternative priorities that the authorities could use for evaluating bids in a process which is still opaque.
  • Early net-metering projects, which represent the first phase of market-based projects.
  • The prospects for Egypt as a regional energy hub.

The analysis is underpinned and informed by independent power generation forecasts based on the actual project development pipeline, with data drawn from African Energy Live Data – our proprietary database of more than 6,500 power projects and plants.
