Wind Energy Potential in Egypt

Mean wind speed at 50 m a.g.l. determined by mesoscale modelling

Offshore wind resource map of Egypt:
mean wind speed at 50 m a.g.l. determined by mesoscale modelling

With a currently installed capacity of about 145 MW – corresponding to less than 1% of the electricity consumption – wind power is still in its infancy in Egypt. But the goals for the future have been set higher: 850 MW in 2010 (3%) and 2750 MW in 2020 (6%).
In order to effectively meet these goals, Egypt is not only committed to refine and strengthen the legal and regulatory framework governing wind power in Egypt, but also to provide the necessary reliable background information on the geographical variation and magnitude of the Egyptian wind resource.
