Egyptian-German Joint Committee on renewable energy, energy efficiency and environmental protection

Egypte

Titre : Egyptian-German Joint Committee on renewable energy, energy efficiency and environmental protection

Pays : Egypte

Durée : 2015 to 2019

Commissioned by : : German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ)

Organisme de tutelle :

Agence d’exécution : Ministry of Electricity and Renewable Energy (MoRE) ; New and Renewable Energy Authority (NREA)

Contexte
Egypt has enormous resources of renewable energy, such as wind and solar energy, which could reduce its current dependency on fossil fuels. Plans have been put in place to increase the share of renewable energies in the electricity supply from the current nine per cent to 20 per cent by 2022. In May 2012, the government adopted a strategic energy efficiency road map. In 2016, several information campaigns on the topic of energy saving were held around the country. More such campaigns are now being planned. Moreover, state-owned power distribution companies are now obliged to increase their energy efficiency. They must, for instance, submit annual efficiency plans, the implementation of which is then binding.

Objectifs
Conditions have become more conducive for climate-friendly investments in renewable energies and energy efficiency. Longer term strategies for renewable energies and energy efficiency have been introduced.

Approche
The Egyptian-German Committee provides a platform for national actors to conduct a cross-sector policy dialogue on renewable energies, energy efficiency and climate change. It cooperates with a range of stakeholders, including eight Egyptian ministries as well as the Ministerial Council on Energy and the Federation of Egyptian Industries. The project team supports its partner institutions with comprehensive policy advice, holistic capacity development measures, education initiatives and technology transfers. The areas of activity include improving the statutory and regulatory framework for the promotion of renewable energies and energy efficiency, and the provision of training and organisational support for employees of important institutions in aspects of energy and climate protection. Through information campaigns, the partners are raising public awareness for the efficient use of electricity.
