The climate conference witnessed the signing of 4 major power generation projects with a capacity of 28 GW, rising to 59.5 GW by the end of 2021, equivalent to 8 times the total renewable electricity. At the end of last year, the production capacity of the country was 3.4 GW.
The following provides the most important information about Egypt’s largest wind power project with a capacity of 10 GW:
1– The 10 GW wind power plant, when completed, will generate 47,790 GWh of clean energy annually..
2– This will help avoid 23.8 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions, equivalent to about 9% of Egypt’s current carbon dioxide emissions..
3– A new onshore wind farm could save Egypt $5 billion in annual natural gas costs.
4– The wind farm will provide up to 100,000 jobs, with around 30,000 direct jobs expected during the construction phase and around 70,000 indirect jobs, with around 3,200 jobs added for operation and maintenance. Construction activities of the plant..
5– The project comes within the framework of Egypt’s “Green Corridor Initiative”, a network dedicated to renewable energy projects, and will contribute to Egypt’s goal of ensuring 42% renewable energy of the energy mix by 2035..
