Egypt fights climate change with solar projects
Adjust font size:


Many countries are trying to find new energy to reduce greenhouse emissions. Egypt has the highest greenhouse gas emissions in the world.

The country now is trying to reverse that by diversifying and cleaning its electric power production.

In Kureimat in the Egyptian desert, workers prepare to capture sun rays and turn them into energy.

The solar project is cleaner and carbon-free. In a country like Egypt, it's a natural choice.

Abd El Rahman Salah El Din, Chairman of Nat's Renewable Energy Authority, Egypt, said, "We have many capabilities. We have a huge desert, we have human resources, we have clouds only about nine or ten days a year, and our sun projection is very high because we are in the sun belt."

The Solar Project is one of the renewable energy projects now underway in the country.

Operation is set to begin next year.

These solar panel structures will take up 65 thousand square meters of desert. But it's just a beginning.

Egypt's top energy officials say the country is already planning a solar energy scale-up, as part of a regional plan extending across North Africa.
