Switching to clean, renewable energy sources has become an inevitable necessity to confront climate change. Given that traditional energy sources have been a major cause of the natural disasters we constantly face: floods, torrents, droughts, and wildfires, the transition is human necessity. However, as with all transitions the cost and negative impacts might disproportionately be shouldered by the more vulnerable.

Considering the economic challenges accompanying the transition to clean energy sources and the current gas and electricity crisis in Egypt, the “Alternative Policy Solutions” project at the American University in Cairo is hosting the “Renewable Energy in Egypt: The Opportunities and Challenges” webinar led by Ahmed Zahran ’02, CEO and co-founder of KarmSolar. The webinar, taking place on Wednesday July 10, 2024, at 12pm (Live on Facebook), will discuss the prospects and ways for a just energy transition in Egypt. The meeting will be moderated by Ahmed Khalaf, Senior Officer for Partnerships and Program Development at Alternative Policy Solutions (APS).
This webinar comes under the Just Transition Green Bridge project.
