Future Electricity Systems Forum 2024

Theme: Empowering a Sustainable Energy Future and Transforming Utilities


The future of Egypt's electricity system looks promising, with substantial growth expected in both capacity and investments. As of 2021, Egypt had a cumulative installed electricity capacity of about 59.5 gigawatts (GW), and this is projected to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate of over 2% through 2035.

Renewable energy plays a key role in meeting the future electricity demand in North Africa. In Egypt alone, the National Renewable Energy Strategy aims to increase the share of renewables in the national energy mix to 42% by 2035. This includes significant expansion in solar and wind energy, with ongoing projects and investments expected to make Egypt the largest renewable energy market in Africa.

The Future Electricity System Forum will focus on decentralised energy and its innovations and challenges, the electric vehicle market, energy storage, as well as the digitalisation and cybersecurity of electricity systems.

The conference will bring together experts and partners to discuss cooperation, partnerships, and the role of future electricity systems in driving economic growth.
