and supports wind energy development in Egypt by facilitating the
exchange of technical information, expertise and experience in the wind
energy sector. It aims to further the wind energy interests of Egypt in
particular and developing countries in general.
EGWEA aims to be an
influential umbrella organization representing the wind energy sector in
Egypt and thus assisting interaction and co-operation between all energy
players. It will be a network through which support around the world
will be obtained or given on wind energy matters. In this way it shall
promote the development of and investment in wind energy in Egypt.
EGWEAís activities are based on
the following principles:
- The potential consequences of a
continuation of increasing emissions of Carbon Dioxide and other
greenhouse gases to the global climate are of such a serious nature
that replacements for all polluting and hazardous waste creating
energy technologies must be developed and adopted as soon as possible.
- Wind energy shall be the driving
force for the immediate implementation of renewable energy in Egypt,
in keeping with the global trend of recent years.
- Wind energy solutions that involve
and benefit local communities shall be promoted. These may be
grid-connected and/or stand-alone systems.
