EGYPT SMALL SCALE PV PROJECTS - SUCCESS STORY
- Sep 14, 2021 11:02 pm GMT
This album presents success stories of Solar System projects supported technically and financially by the Grid-Connected Small Scale Photovoltaic Systems “Egypt-PV”, which is implemented by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in partnership with the Industrial Modernization Center (IMC) and funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF).
The total number of implemented projects till June 2020 reached 35 projects across various targeted sectors. Egypt-PV successfully implemented 109 solar system plants in 13 governorates with a total capacity of 8.2 MWp, and with a total saving of electricity 13 GWh / year. It includes 16 projects in the industrial sector, 6 projects in the commercial sector, 3 projects in the public buildings sector, 5 projects in the tourism sector, 3 projects in the educational services sector, and two projects in the residential sector.
In addition, this project album presents significant events and training sessions conducted by the project from 2018 till June 2020.
The project aims at the development of decentralized, grid-connected small-scale PV systems and catalyzing its installation over factories, hotels, commercial, public and residential buildings, which will result in a direct reduction in GHG equivalent to 0.6 to 0.7 million tons of CO2 emissions.
In addition to establishing a one-stop shop to provide technical support, with the intention of increasing PV local component, creating new employment opportunities, and supporting this emergent technology and market in Egypt while removing barriers preventing from increasing power generation using decentralized grid-connected small scale PV systems.
This project was awarded as the best project internationally in the " Low Carbon" Category of The 21 st annual competition "EI Awards" for the year 2000 organized by the British Energy Institue (BEI).
Hydrogen is essential to the UK Government’s net zero ambitions and fuel cell technology is highly complementary with the storage of cheap hydrogen and the generation of electricity on demand.
I frequently write about microgrids, and also about renewable energy sources at all scales. None of the existing neighborhood microgrid concepts really makes the two major benefits of microgrids widely available. These benefits are:
