The Economic Research Foundation Oxford Business Group commended Egypt's efforts to enhance its potential in the field of electricity generation through renewable energy sources.

In a report published on its website, the firm said that government administrators in Egypt are seeking to increase the production of electricity through solar energy and other renewable energy sources.
The statement added that the Ministry of Electricity plans to increase by the year 2022, the amount of energy generated using renewable sources from the current ratio of 12 percent to 20 percent of total.
