  • Egypt, UAE firm sign 10-bln-USD deal to build wind power plant
An agreement to build a wind power plant in Upper Egypt’s Sohag province was signed on Tuesday between Egypt’s Ministry of Electricity and Masdar, a renewable energy developer based in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Egypt’s $10-billion wind energy project announced last year moved one step closer to its execution after the consortium responsible for the renewable project signed a deal on June 6 to secure the required land. The agreement will help Egypt achieve its annual goal of slashing carbon emissions by 9 percent in conjunction with onshore wind farms, producing 47,790 GWh of clean energy annually while displacing 23.8 million tons of carbon dioxide.
