Egypt: EU Ambassador to inaugurate new solar photovoltaic plant in Alexandria

H.E James Moran, EU Ambassador to Egypt, will inaugurate a new solar photovoltaic plant placed on the roof of the Alexandria Chamber of Commerce. The ceremony, to take place on 5th of June 2016, will be attended by Mohamed Ahmed Abdel Zaher, Governor of Alexandria, Ahmed El Wakil, President of Alexandria Chamber of Commerce and Mohamed El Sobki, Executive Chairman of the New and Renewable Energy Authority.

With a capacity of 30,750 kWh per year, the innovative pilot plant is one of the 5 implemented by the FOSTEr in MED project in the Mediterranean area. Other buildings equipped with solar technologies are: Balqa College in Aqaba (Jordan), the Lebanese University Campus in Beirut (Lebanon), the Centre National de Formation de Formateurs et d’Ingénierie de Formation (CENAFFIF) in Tunis (Tunisia) and the Regional Agency for Housing (AREA) in Cagliari (Italy).

FOSTEr in MED promotes the development of building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV), which consists in the integration of solar modules in buildings as architectural elements (such as a roof, a façade, a shading element, a parapet).
