Meanwhile, land parcels in the Aswan and Sohag Governorates were made available for wind projects, of which Egypt holds roughly 1,640 MW of power generation potential, concentrated primarily in the Suez Gulf. The North African nation is home to high levels of solar irradiation, coupled with strong winds and large desert plains. 

Last November, it was announced that Egypt would sign final agreements to construct two new wind and solar projects totaling 1,000 MW of installed generation capacity,  with a view to deriving 42% of total power generation from renewables by 2030.
