The second annual Wind Power Egypt will be held 9-11 October 2016 in Cairo, Egypt, and those who register by Thursday, 28 July can save up to $200 (US) off their attendance fee.
Egypt is pursuing a renewable energy strategy aimed at achieving 20 percent electricity generation from wind energy by 2022 -- some 7,110 MW. Toward that end, the government plans to invest over $10 billion (US) in renewable energy projects over the next decade.
Egypt boasts exceptional wind conditions and will soon become the regional hub for wind energy generation. Currently, the country has three renewable energy development schemes which includes competitive bidding, IPP and Feed-in Tariff (FiT) and have opened multiple opportunities for small and large projects.
The FiT scheme in particular has proven to be very attractive which will help generate 2000 MW from wind energy installations with projects capacities ranging from 20 MW up to 50 MW.
With several wind power projects in the pipeline and increased credibility of Egypt’s renewable energy market, the Wind Power Egypt conference will be a platform to discuss the second stage of wind power development in Egypt.
This is the only event in the country that focuses purely on wind power projects and will gather government bodies, investors, developers and all key stakeholders to exchange ideas and best practices for further development of Egypt’s wind energy market.
In addition, the event will combine a first-class exhibition with a high quality conference focusing on key issues including investments, project update and schemes available, grid integration and energy storage.
Key speakers include Dr. Mohammed Salah ElSobki, executive chairman of Egypt's New and Renewable Energy Authority; Maged Mahmoud, technical director and senior renewable energy expert of the Regional Center for Renewable Energy and Efficiency; Alberto Gil Garcia, senior manager, wind technology for ACWA Power; Samir Nacef, vice president, South Asia, Middle East and Africa for Engie; and Nandita Parshad, director, head of power and energy utilities, banking for the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.
Also on hand will be representatives of Egypt Electricity Transmission Company; Ministry of Electricity and Renewable Energy, Egypt; Egyptian Electric Utility and Consumer Protection Regulatory Agency; Egypt Electricity Holding Company, and many more.
A white paper on wind energy projects in Egypt is available here.
