7.5MW Solar PV Plant for Cement Factory Approved in Egypt

The 7.5 MW plant will offset approximately 4% of the electricity use by Arabian Cement Company facilities. Apart from the cost savings, the company also says that the project will as well reduce the environmental impact of its facilities.

Furthermore, Arabian Cement Company sees the initiative as part of the Egyptian government’s strategy to achieve 20% of the country’s electricity supply from renewable sources by the end of this year.

Green Building Africa promotes the need for net carbon zero buildings and cities in Africa. We are fiercely independent and encourage outlying thinkers to contribute to the #netcarbonzero movement. Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
