Egypt’s Feed-In Tariff Program: Ready, Set…

egypt-report150115-icnEgypt recently released a shortlist of 110 qualified applicants for solar photovoltaic and wind projects in the context of the first regulatory period of its new feed-in tariff scheme.

The first regulatory period runs from 2015 to 2017. During this time, the Egyptian government aims to procure 4,300 megawatts of renewable energy capacity, including 2,000 megawatts of medium-to-large scale solar photovoltaic facilities and 2,000 megawatts of wind facilities.

The 110 qualified applications include 13 small-to-medium scale solar photovoltaic facilities (i.e., up to 20 megawatts), 69 large-scale solar photovoltaic facilities (i.e., from 20 megawatts to 50 megawatts) and 28 wind facilities ranging from 20 megawatts to 50 megawatts.

Although certain known market participants are likely dissimulated behind special-purpose vehicles many of the usual suspects are included in the shortlist.
