Executive Summary

Despite being rich in natural resources, Egypt is plagued by political and economic instability. Power subsidies that have existed for a long time, have come into question for their sustainability and their impact on the economy. Problems with existing infrastructure that have produced widespread transmission and distribution problems, declining oil production and natural gas exports, and lack of technical expertise to scale up the power infrastructure are causing the widening gap between demand and consumption. All this, coupled with depleting resources and global environmental awareness have prompted the Egypt government to increase the share of renewable resources in power generation.

_In this report, we have analyzed the structural setup of the Egypt power sector, and briefly discuss the laws and regulations that are applicable and the political situation that plagues the country. The report provides an overview of the power sector, including demand and supply dynamics, and the various sources that are being used to generate electricity. Furthermore, the report also covers the scope in Egypt for renewable and nuclear energy, along with the challenges in power sector for the various stakeholders.
