Egypt’s electricity generation plans mean the country could end up with an enormous surplus of 74.4GW by 2035, new research by African Energy finds. Electricity oversupply could be larger still as the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic are expected to subdue economic growth in the short-term. This raises further questions surrounding the country’s medium-term electricity sector planning. Despite these challenges power sector investment opportunities will continue.
While generation capacity has doubled over the past five years, Egypt may need as much as 100GW of new power over the next 15 years, our 2020-2035 supply and demand outlook shows. The success of the Benban solar complex has made headlines but renewable energy still accounts for less than 10% of installed capacity. With government plans to source 42% of generation from renewable sources by 2035, the need for solar and wind in particular will be greater than ever. Plans to privatise large-scale gas plants have been announced, but Egypt Power Report 2020 questions the space for new thermal power in the short- to medium-term, the viability of generation targets, and examines Egypt’s export options.
Report includes: Executive brief, Political and economic risk analysis, Market structure and overview, Policy and regulation outlook, African Energy Risk Management Index, Competitive landscape, Fuel resource availability, Transmission overview, Demand and supply outlook 2020-2035, exclusive power sector data on installed capacity (2010-2024 by fuel, technology, ownership and provinces) and project profiles.
African Energy’s own Risk Management Index and 15-year (2010-24) power supply analysis using African Energy Live Data – our proprietary database of more than 6,500 power projects – to identify trends on installed capacity broken down by fuel, technology, provinces and more.
Egypt Power Report 2020 also provides comprehensive information on existing and planned generation projects; an appreciation of the political risk and the key players in the sector; an overview of the macroeconomic climate and outlook; details on the market structure and operations, analysis of policy and regulation including future plans, major legislation and legal requirements for generation, transmission and distribution; and natural gas resources and availability.
