Egyptian Ministry of Electricity & Renewable Energy: Success Story

In early 2017, the Egyptian government embarked a plan to upgrade and boost the efficiency of electricity transmission and distribution grids, with the conversion of the national grid into a smart grid that can accommodate the increased generated capacity.
 
Along the journey, our CEO Jean Pascal Tricoire met with Egypt’s President Abdel Fatah El-Sisi, along with Caspar Herzberg, our MEA Zone President and Walid Sheta, Schneider Electric’s Egypt Cluster President, and Sherif Abdel Fattah, Schneider Electric’s Egypt Vice Chairman.

Managing all these various groups has been essential to winning their trust and ensuring that they understand how our technologies and expertise can transform Egypt’s national electricity distribution. We’ve been engaged with the Egyptian Government from day one, working with the country key decision makers , the Ministry of Electricity and Renewable Energy and the Egyptian Electricity Holding Company to share our vision of what we can do for the country, with a focus on using our in-country manufacturing expertise, our national engineering capabilities and our global research and development to build a smart grid that would meet the needs of the country and its people for future generations, Schneider Electric won 4 control centers out of 5 in the proposed tender by the Egyptian government, this national deal involved dozens of different parties, from government, consultants, and our own employees. We’ve had different teams involved, locally, regionally, and globally.
 
In March 2020, President Abdel Fattah El Sisi received Luc Rémont, President of Schneider Electric, and an agreement was reached between the Ministry of Electricity and Renewable Energy and Schneider Electric. Under the agreement, Schneider Electric will establish several control centers in Egypt's electricity distribution grids, in addition to doubling its investments within the framework of the national plan to establish and develop these centers country-wide, which will boost electrical supply as well as the quality of the national electricity grid in general, in accordance with international standards.

After many discussions, meetings and talks, we concluded Phase One in July 2020. We will set up four control centers as well as upgrade parts of the national electricity grid. Egypt’s new smart grid will be greener, more efficient, and technology-driven.

We’re proud to be part of one of the most important electricity and development projects in Egypt’s history. The DCC program, which involves the establishment of four control centers in its first phase, is an essential part of building the region’s best national smart grid. Our EcoStruxure Grid solutions will be at the heart of what is the most exciting energy distribution project in the region.

By working hand-in-hand with Egypt’s government and building a clear picture of the smart grid of the 21st century, we will help improve the lives of tens of millions of Egyptians and ensure that they have access to cleaner, affordable electricity. Thanks to Egypt and Schneider Electric, Life Is On
