NREL, in partnership with USAID, has cooperated with the Egyptian government on a number of activities to promote clean energy development. Some of these activities included:

Climate Technology

  • Obtaining agreement of Egyptian General Petroleum Company, operator of refineries to pursue refinery retrofit at one of facilities
  • Recruited and developed Egyptian ESCO partner, ESCO Misr, for refinery project Developed partnership with Nexant/Cairo to provide in-country support

U.S.-Egypt Science and Technology Joint Board

  • Organized workshop on hybrid renewable power systems for desert agriculture
  • Generated significant interest among Egyptian government, academic, and U.S. partner.

Renewable and Hybrid Systems for Agriculture

  • Develop refined economic analysis and demonstration of hybrid renewable power systems for desert agriculture.

Industrial Energy Efficiency

  • Organize trade missions, reverse trade missions, and other events to facilitate U.S.-Egyptian commercial partnerships in the ESCO area.

Large Scale Grid Connected Wind

Pursued emerging opportunities based on developments:

  • Danish development agency (DANIDA) installing 40 additional MW at Zafarana windfarm on the Red Sea.
  • US Export-Import bank interested in details of mixed credit arrangement, to make case for matching those terms
  • World bank interested in working with NREL to assess how grid-connected wind fits in Egypt’s expansion plan.

Certification and training collaboration with NREA.

  • New and Renewable Energy Authority expressed interest in this area after seeing CDER in Marrakech.
  • Could include a range of certification, training, staff exchanges, and other capacity- building activities. [1]
