Law n. 87 - Electricity Law
The Law also contributes to increased competitiveness of the electricity market and opening up for distributed (including clean energy) production, by:
- allowing for private sector participation in electricity generation and distribution;
- setting out the framework for market liberalisation through de-monopolising generation and distribution activities;
- restructuring the roles of the Egyptian Electric Utility & Consumer Protection Agency and the Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company, in particular in relation to ensuring freedom of competition in the power sector market; and
- codifying the fundamentals of permitting and licensing, including for renewable electricity production.
