Egypt: Aiming at High-Quality Supply Chain

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on September 29, 2014
Egypt TrainingSolar energy is becoming an increasingly attractive and feasible option for many applications in Egypt against a backdrop of rising energy prices across the country. In July 2014, the long-announced first step of reducing fossil fuel and electricity subsidies resulted in a new energy price hike. According to the Chairman of the Solar Energy Development Association (SEDA), Khaled Gasser, diesel prices have jumped by 70%, the ones for petrol by, on average, around 40%, whereas natural gas prices have risen by 30 to 70 %, and electricity is now 25 % more expensive. The next challenge is to develop a high-quality solar thermal supply chain from system providers to certified installers
