Green Energy

Economic Update

Does solar have a bright future in Egypt after Covid-19?

Egypt’s total of 1173 recorded Covid-19 cases and 78 deaths, as of April 5, places Africa's third-most populous country significantly below the global per capita averages for both counts as the pandemic continues to disrupt the global economy.


Analysis

New policies for private investment in Egypt's renewables

A combination of factors is driving demand for solar power in Egypt. According to the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), the cost of electricity produced by renewable projects has gradually decreased over recent years to become more competitive than traditional hydrocarbons-based sources.


Economic Update

The renewable projects driving Egypt’s energy transformation

Egypt is moving ahead with plans to transform its renewable energy capacity, spearheaded by the development of a major solar power station.


Analysis

Egypt looks beyond oil to alternative natural resources

Egypt has the potential to produce 53% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2030, according to a 2018 assessment from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA).

Global Pandemic Disruption

Economic Update

How will oil prices shape the Covid-19 recovery in emerging markets?

A combination of continued production cuts and an increase in economic activity has prompted oil prices to return to pre-pandemic levels – a factor that will be crucial to the recovery of major oil-producing countries in the Middle East and Africa.
