The Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company (EETC) awarded Siemens a series of five-year grid studies to analyze and examine Egypt’s transmission network, to identify the feasibility of deploying different advanced energy technologies.
The studies will look at the potential role of smart technologies to transform the North African country’s energy grid. The studies will include a comprehensive training program for the EETC planning team who will jointly execute the various studies together with Siemens.
The cooperation with Siemens will explore the opportunities and challenges facing the national grid, with Egypt’s plans to leverage electric mobility. Also included will be the study of Egypt’s Benban Solar Park, Egypt-Sudan Interconnection project, and Ouynat East Development Project.
