Addressing pre-construction challenges when building a wind farm in Egypt: regulation, investment and feasibility studies

Increasing energy demands and pressure on fuel supplies is leading Egypt to invest in renewable energy sector. With Egypt targeting 7.2 GW of wind energy by 2020 the country has plans to become the MENA region hub for developing wind power.

The 2nd Annual Wind Power Egypt Conference is the only conference in the region focusing purely on Egyptian wind market. To be held from 9-10 October 2016 in Cairo Egypt the conference will explore regulations, legislative and legal frameworks and policies for Egypt’s wind power market. The event will shed light on both the competitive bidding and feed-in tariff models. Apart from highlighting the latest technologies in wind power generations the event will also highlight best practices for mitigating operational and maintenance challenges for wind power operations in Egypt and rest of North Africa.

The 2nd Wind Power Egypt conference is a key opportunity for regulators, developers, component providers, investors and other stakeholders interested in the Egyptian market to meet and formulate next steps for ensuring that the country meets its wind energy generation targets. This event will be combining a high-quality conference with a first-class exhibition and networking opportunities which will help identify best practices and technologies for minimising costs and enhancing operations of wind farms.
