Lighting: a major element in reducing Egypt’s energy consumption
Egypt is the fastest growing economy in the Middle East and Africa and is one of the most populous countries. To reduce the energy demand, Egypt’s energy efficiency program requires the total energy consumption of government buildings and street lighting to be reduced by 50% by December 2016.
In April 2015, a project valued at US$268.2million was announced by the Minster of Electricity to replace 3.89 million street lamp bulbs with energy-efficient ones and is slated to be completed in 28 months. The objective of the energy-efficient street lighting will save Egypt US$191.52 million annually.
The 2nd annual LightingTech Egypt will be held on 26-27 September 2016 in Cairo, Egypt. This conference is organized by Advanced Conferences and meetings and will discuss the challenges, latest technology advancements, partnership requirements and market entry strategies.
