Dr Mohamed El Sobki, Executive Chairman of the New and Renewable Energy Authority (NREA), has just announced that Egypt will, by February 2016, be introducing a feed in tariff for electricity generated at energy from waste plants. Dr Sobki is currently consulting with the Ministry of Environment, the Ministry of Petroleum and the Egyptian Electric Utility and Consumer Protection Regulatory Agency (EgyptERA) to set indicative prices. This is part of Egypt’s drive to reach a total contribution of renewable energy of 40% by 2035 and 65% by 2050.
