Under the patronage of Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly, Al-Ahram is set to launch the third edition of its annual Energy Conference under the theme ‘Energy, Investment Horizons and Development Opportunities’ on 29 December.
During the conference, which is organised by Al-Ahram Al-Massaei Newspaper and Al-Ahram Investment Company, Tarek El-Molla, minister of petroleum and mineral resources, and Mohamed Shaker, minister of electricity and renewable energy, are set to review their respective ministries’ experiences in empowering young people and helping prepare them for leadership positions.
The two-day conference is scheduled to cover investment management methods and discuss how Egypt has succeeded in overcoming the sector’s challenges.
The conference’s participants will also introduce a comprehensive vision about the future of sustainable energy in Egypt and Africa, as well as discuss the future of natural gas development in Egypt in light of new natural gas discoveries.
Participants will also discuss the national natural gas delivery project and the role of the natural gas sector in turning Egypt into a regional energy hub.
The conference will also touch upon the connection between electricity and digital transformation, as well as the role financial corporations should play in boosting funding for the energy sector through adjusting bank policies on joint loans and insurance.
The annual conference was established to serve as a one-of-a-kind event that focuses on the energy sector in Egypt and the investment opportunities it offers, as well as to help decision makers adopt a strategy regarding investment in the sector.
The first edition of the conference was held in 2017 under the patronage of former Prime Minister Sherif Ismail, and drafted a national vision in line with Egypt’s efforts to be a regional energy hub.
The second edition was held in 2018 under the theme ‘Energy Future and Sustainable Development: Egypt’s Vision 2030.’
