Contribute to the target of 20% renewable electricity generation by 2020. A feed-in tariff is to be developed for several sources of renewable energy and a renewable energy support fund to be set up to back feed-in tariff payments.

The following activities would be undertaken:

  • Subsidizing the tariffs offered by the Egyptian Electricity Holding Company so that more rapid penetration of renewable energy sources could be achieved, including via private sector investment
  • Establishment of RE support fund to cover the feed-in tariff payments
  • Reform of regulatory framework to fit a larger renewable energy share (e.g. guaranteed network access and preferential dispatch)
  • Supporting the New and Renewable Energy Agency (NREA)
  • Assistance for the integration of RE into the grid
  • Development of a MRV system
