Al-Ahram Establishment will launch on Monday the fourth edition of its annual energy-focused conference under the patronage of Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly.
Minister of Electricity and Renewable Energy Mohamed Shaker, Minister of Petroleum Tarek El-Molla, and other leading officials and experts from the energy sector are set to attend the conference.
The conference, dubbed Harvest of Reform and Future of Development, is set to tackle the strategy of the energy sector in Egypt, investment opportunities in energy and the development of the petroleum sector in terms of research, exploration, and the refining process.
It will also address chances and challenges on the path toward digital transformation seen by the electricity sector in the fields of green hydrogen technology and regional and international electricity network linkage.
Green hydrogen is a carbon-free fuel obtained by extracting hydrogen from water, which consists of hydrogen and oxygen, through using renewably produced electricity to break molecules.
The fourth conference is organised by Al-Ahram Al-Massaei newspaper and Al-Ahram Investment Company.
Abdel-Mohsen Salama, chairman of Al-Ahram and head of the forum, said the establishment is keen on continuing cooperation with state institutions in organising the forum due to its importance as a platform for “golden opportunities” in the future of energy in the country.
“Despite of the circumstances faced globally and in Egypt due to the surge in coronavirus cases, Al-Ahram was determined, with its partners, to go forward with the forum…with a full adherence of preventive measures against the virus,” said Salama.
Karam Gabr, head of the Supreme Council for Media Regulation; Maged Mounir, editor-in-chief of Al-Ahram Al-Massaei and Al-Ahram Gate; and Alaa Thabet, editor-in-chief of Al-Ahram newspaper are set to participate in the meeting.
