Within the framework of the German Energy Solutions Initiative energy solutions - made in Germany, the German-Arab Chamber of Industry and Commerce [GACIC] is organizing the 9th Egyptian-German Renewables Day, on the 08th of October 2017 in Cairo, Egypt.

The initiative is coordinated and financed by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy and GACIC is the implementing partner in Egypt.

With regards to the global climate change issue and the ever greater importance of energy security, an increased use of renewable energy is a high priority for Egypt.

The Egyptian government has signed the Paris Agreement (COP21 of the UNFCCC) and it has entered into force as of 29th July 2017.

Following an ongoing thorough reform in the framework of the electricity sector since 2014 which also comprised the kick-off of the second round of the feed-in-tariff in Ocotber 2016, major investments have already been launched in the Egyptian Solar PV sector.

In line with the ongoing support of GACIC for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency, and after the success of numerous previous business delegations on wind and solar energy, the conference is held on the occasion of an incoming delegation of several German companies providing technologies and services in the field of Solar PV.
