Le barrage d’Assouan fournit la moitié de l’alimentation électrique de l’Égypte. L’Égypte travaille également à accroître son utilisation de l’énergie solaire.

The Egyptian government has obtained funding to rehabilitate its dam on the Nile River.

Germany’s KfW Development Bank agreed to finance $28.3 million for a rehabilitation project of hydroelectric stations in the Aswan Dam in southern Egypt, Egypt’s Ministry of International Cooperation announced Wednesday in a tweet.

The bank also agreed to provide $31.5 million in financing for Egypt’s solar power plant in Zaafarana in northern Egypt, the state-owned Al-Ahram reported Thursday.  LINK TO ARTICLE
