Egypt possesses an abundance of land, sunny weather and high wind speed, making it a prime resource for three renewable energy sources: wind, solar and biomass.
Moreover, Egypt is one of the countries lying in the solar belt region which is the most convenient for the solar energy applications. Solar Atlas reveals that the average of vertical solar radiation is between 2000-32000 KWh/m2/year and the rate of solar rise ranges between 9-11 hours/day offering investment opportunities in the various solar energy projects.
The west of Suez Gulf area is considered one of the most promising sites for construction of large wind farms projects due to the high wind speeds ranging between 8-10 meter/second and due to the availability of large uninhabited desert area
