Egypt’s official long-term ambitions aim at becoming more energy efficient by 5% by the year 2022 and by 18% by 2035 as suggested in the National Energy Efficiency Action Plan (NEEAP). With 42.3% of energy being consumed by the residential sector and 27.4% by the industry (EEHC Report 2015-2016), these two sectors are the main focus of policies and activities, for example, reflected in the Electricity Law No. 87/2015.
JCEE has a long history of collaboration with the Ministry of Electricity and Renewable Energy (MoERE) and its affiliated governmental bodies to tackle significant improvements in Energy Efficiency (EE). Together, we worked on a considerable number of topics, such as implementing EE units in the line ministries, providing capacity building training for the assigned personnel as well as those in the distribution companies. Further, we managed to develop a smartphone application for households that offers tailor-made information on their private electricity consumption and hence provides an improved reading and reporting mechanism.
