Egypt and Greece move forward on electricity interconnection project
Europe is looking for new energy partners to deal with the current crisis and the consequences of Russia's invasion of Ukraine. In this sense, countries such as Azerbaijan, Algeria and Qatar have emerged as possible alternatives to Russian energy. Similarly, Egypt has shown potential and capacity to become a reliable energy ally.
In September last year, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al Sisi met with the president of the Union of Greek Electric Utilities, Dimitri Kobilozis, to discuss bilateral cooperation. In this regard, they focused on the development of electricity projects based on Egyptian renewable energy sources and their export to Europe via Greece by means of a submarine cable.
