New African Energy research shows Egypt’s power sector is evolving with extraordinary rapidity.
The trajectory of the sector, which has witnessed a massive transition to gas-to-power (GTP) generation since 2015, has now shifted forcibly towards renewables.
With government priorities shifting, procurement, which started with large scale state-owned EPC+Finance initiatives, has progressed rapidly through the feed-in tariff and BOOT tender processes to the increasing predominance of bilaterally negotiated IPPs.

The report examines progress towards subsidy reform and full sector liberalisation and analyses tariffs and market structure to provide an estimate of the proportion of power customers now paying close to cost-reflective tariffs.
The report also considers potential supply and demand scenarios and asks how much of the existing less-efficient thermal generation may have to be decommissioned.
Analysis is underpinned and informed by independent power generation forecasts based on the actual project development pipeline, with data drawn from African Energy Live Data – our proprietary database of more than 6,500 power projects and plants.
Join African Energy for a free webinar – Egypt new risks and new opportunities, where the report's authors will discuss some of the risks, realities, opportunities and threats associated with entering Egypt's electricity industry.
In the short video below John Hamilton introduces some of the main talking points.
