AHK Geschäftsreise Ägypten

From 14-18 October 2018, an AHK business trip to Egypt will take place on the topic of wind energy including grid outages.



At the trade conference on Monday, 15 October 2018 in Cairo, you as a company headquartered in Germany will have the opportunity to present your products and services to the Egyptian trade public. On the following days, the AHK organises individual appointments for each company with relevant Egyptian decision-makers and potential business partners. Your wishes will be asked in advance with the help of a company questionnaire and then taken into account in the selection of the discussion partners.


As of 2018, a personal contribution of 250.00 - 1,250.00 EUR will be charged to participating companies for participation in AHK business trips, depending on the size of the company. For further information, please refer to the registration documents.


Target market Egypt

Egypt wants to achieve a 37% share of renewable energies in the total electricity mix by 2035; and is well on its way there. On the basis of reliable feed-in laws and a PPA of 20-25 years, numerous large-scale wind projects have already been developed, so that just over 800 MW of wind power is currently installed in Egypt. Approximately 600 MW are to be added annually by 2022. This will be accompanied by the expansion of the grid. According to the Ministry of Energy, at least USD 37 billion in investments will be required in the next two years to upgrade the transmission and distribution grid for the absorption of renewable capacities. Only in May 2018 were tenders published for five new substations in Upper Egypt, the West Delta and Cairo (consulting, construction and supply services), which will enable the connection of renewable energy sources and combined cycle power plants. The expansion of these large-scale renewable energy projects is supported by KfW in Germany, among others.
