Egypt is determined to ultimately meet 60% of its energy needs from renewables as part of a high-level strategy now being drawn up, a top government official tells Energy Intelligence. Detailed discussions involving the Ministry of Petroleum and the Ministry of Electricity are taking place to finance more renewable projects and invest in new technologies, “and the strategy will be unveiled as it's being completed,” says Rania al-Mashat, Egypt's minister of international cooperation. Al-Mashat, who took over the ministry in December 2019, expressed the government's "commitment and focus to move to renewable energy, whether it's solar or wind."
