ABOUT SOLAR PROJECTS EGYPT CONFERENCE

The Egyptian government is investing billions of dollars into new renewable energy projects to facilitate the development of wind and solar power plants across the country. Egypt has committed to increase its share of renewables in the country’s power mix to 20% by 2022 and 37% by 2035.

Egypt’s New and Renewable Energy Authority (NREA) has recently awarded the winning consortiums projects for round one of their Feed in Tariff (FIT) solar programme and are moving ahead with round two of project development. Three companies have already made the cut for phase one while the remaining pushed to phase two. This is expected to generate massive interest from Egyptian and foreign companies vying to get involved in the promising solar industry. Power Purchase agreements (PPAs)have already taken their first step towards completion with letters of commitment submitted by developers ahead of the final proposal submission deadline in October 2017. To further ensure interest and robust benefits to all parties’ contractual clauses allowing international arbitration have been included.

The 3rd Annual Solar Projects Egypt conference will bring the value chain to discuss updates in the Egyptian energy sector and of course the new PPAs that are up for tender. Egypt's massive population creates an enormous energy demand, which may strain the government's budget but also opens opportunities to invest in technologies to meet its growing need. The Annual Solar projects Egypt conference 2017 is the place to discuss these issues.

The ACM Interface+ Format

The ACM Interface+ conference format is designed to optimise the valuable and finite time our busy delegations can dedicate to being out of the office while also enhancing their enjoyment of the ACM on-site experience. Specifically tailored to our region of operations here in the Middle East, the Interface+ format maximises networking opportunities, facilitating the building of profitable relationships within the context of a dynamic, efficient and relevant learning environment.

ACM conference days, using the Interface+ format, have an earlier start than conventional agendas and conclude with a late lunch. The conference sessions are regularly punctuated by refreshment and networking breaks to allow for unhurried face-to-face interaction between peers, colleagues and business prospects. The mid-afternoon conclusion of our formal conference agenda allows for government representatives and busy executives to adjourn earlier in the day, having still enjoyed a full and rich programme of content. Post-lunch, ACM will offer additional, optional learning and networking opportunities in the shape of workshops, product demonstrations, technology launches, site visits, pre-arranged 1-2-1 business meetings and hosted receptions.

Interface+ makes timing sense for our delegates and business sense for our sponsors.
