“Kom Ombo” solar power plant in Egypt Print E-mail
 The Egyptian government is  preparing for the establishment of a solar  power plant at Kom Ombo region in Aswan within the framework of a strategy designed to diversify energy sources as an implementation of the ministry’s plan, which provides for expanding the use of solar energy.

The Ministry of Electricity and Energy report stated that the plant will produce 100MW, yet financial sources are currently considered as the project is expected to be financed by African Development Fund and UN's Clean Development Mechanism.

The plant capacity will be added to the national grid to meet the development process and the electrical loads evolution. Moreover, the establishment of this plan reflects Egypt seeking to keep abreast of developments in the use of natural energy sources and give serious consideration to the use of solar energy.

Furthermore, the report stressed Egypt’s interest in this sector, pointing out a great cooperation with Euro Mediterranean Union as a part of the Mediterranean Plan carried out under the cooperation agreement concluded between the two sides launched by the Joint Presidency of the Union (Egypt and Franc), related to developing a strategy for solar energy production projects.

 The report has also stated that there are three projects being implemented in Egypt under this Plan, which are the 200MW wind power development plan, 50MW solar thermal plant and 20MW photovoltaic cells plant.
