Edge Innovation Center, developed by Raya Smart Buildings, the real estate subsidiary of Raya Holding— the leading Egyptian shareholding company, hosted a seminar titled “Renewable energy creates the future” where the heads of major companies spoke of their companies’ experience in using renewable energy and in investing in this vital sector.
The seminar saw lively discussions between experts and the heads of major companies from various sectors. They reviewed their experiences and their expertise in providing effective solutions that helped their communities overcome the challenges of traditional energy.
renewable energy is receiving wide presidential attention; President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi has said that Egypt should be on equal footing with developed nations with regards to its renewable energy production.
Last month, President El-Sisi visited the Benban Solar Energy Complex, the largest solar power plant in the world, built in partnership with the private sector and with international expertise. It is also one of the most important infrastructure projects in Egypt.
Using more renewable energy is one of the pillars of sustainable development; it protects the environment, preserves energy for future generations, creates job opportunities and meets the increasing demand for energy. With that in mind many countries have begun to take great strides towards establishing and developing renewable energy sources, especially solar and wind energy.
Ahmed Ibrahim, CEO of Raya Smart Buildings, said the seminar was an opportunity to review the cumulative local and international experiences of giant companies, identifying their various initiatives to invest in this field, and exchanging know-how by listening to their inspiring experiences in this vital sector.
Ahmed Ibrahim highlighted the government and the private sector’s efforts to rely on clean energy by overcoming the difficulties and challenges that prevent this sector from taking off.
This meeting was one of a series of events organized by Edge Innovation Center to shed light on topical issues and pioneer investment projects, bringing together business leaders from various sectors.
