The initiative is now in the feasibility studies stage, and will be presented next week in cooperation with Egypt’s Sovereign Fund and a number of involved ministries.
According to Shaker, Egypt has set aside more than 7,000 square kilometers for renewable energy production projects, with a capacity of 90,000 megawatts (MW).
