Siemens announced that the Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company (EETC) has awarded the company a series of five-year grid studies to analyze and examine Egypt’s transmission network, to identify the feasibility of deploying different advanced energy technologies.

The studies will look at the potential role of smart technologies to transform the grid, as it continues to reflect the changes in the way energy is generated, distributed, managed and stored.

The study will include a comprehensive training program for the EETC planning team who will jointly execute the various studies together with Siemens.

The cooperation with Siemens will explore the opportunities and challenges facing the national grid, with Egypt’s plans to leverage electric mobility, while the studies will also include studying the vital projects in the area, such as Benban Solar Park, Egypt-Sudan Interconnection project and Ouynat East Development Project.
