EDF-led joint venture commissions 2 Egyptian solar projects

EDF Renewables and El Sewedy Electric Co. have commissioned two solar projects with a total capacity of 130 MWp in Benban, Egypt.

The projects, which are part of the larger 1,800-MW Benban solar complex, will supply electricity to the Egyptian Electricity Transmission Co. via a 25-year power purchase agreement, according to an Oct. 14 news release from the Electricité de France SA subsidiary.

The two solar farms received funding from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and French development bank Proparco.

The new projects are part of EDF Group's CAP 2030 strategy to double the net renewable energy capacity to 50 GW worldwide between 2015 and 2030. They will go toward the Egyptian government's ambition to bring renewable energy to 20% of the country's power mix by 2020.
