With funds from the Federal German Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development, GTZ and InWent have commissioned the Renewables Academy (RENAC) to undertake a capacity building activity on the integration of renewable electricity into the Egyptian electricity supply system.
For this purpose a number of Egyptian power grid planners, operators and managers will be trained.
Objectives and methods
The project aims to support the efficient integration of renewable energy into the infrastructure of the Egyptian electricity grid for the future.
To achieve the maximum effectiveness the training shall provide a mixture of theory and practice exercises. The project will cover a range of issues designed to empower the participants to meet the challenges facing the Egyptian grid. In particular, the grid will have to be able to cope with high volumes of renewable energy in the form of wind energy, grid connected photovoltaic, concentrating solar power (CSP), decentralised cogeneration of biomass, sewage gas and landfill gas.
