In his inaugural remarks, El Molla highlighted the ministry’s efforts over the years to confront climate change and reduce emissions in several ways, foremost of which is diversifying the energy mix and increasing the rates of using natural gas, the cleanest fossil fuel.
“The Egyptian Ministry of Petroleum has been working consciously for many years on combatting climate change and reducing emissions on many levels,” the minister stated.
El Molla thanked the foreign partners in the oil and gas sector for their substantial contribution over the past years to projects related to energy efficiency and for helping the sector achieve its goals.
The minister highlighted the sector’s intention to continue investing in energy efficiency opportunities in a way that enhances the sector’s readiness to deal with any challenges and to step towards a sustainable future on the environmental side. The sector should adopt energy and resource efficiency in light of the global trend towards a low-carbon future, El Molla added.
Meanwhile, Christian Berger, the Ambassador of the European Union (EU) in Egypt, pointed out the importance of this conference, which sheds light on the field of improving energy efficiency in light of the global interest in confronting climate change.
Berger stated that the EU countries are working to implement programs and initiatives to improve energy efficiency and that there is cooperation between the EU and the Egyptian Ministry of Petroleum in this field.
Berger pointed out the EU’s desire to strengthen partnership and cooperation with Egypt in the areas of reducing emissions and promoting the use of hydrogen.
After the opening, El Molla handed over the Excellence Awards in Energy Efficiency to the heads of the winning companies, which are, in order, MOPCO Company in the first place, Rasheed Petroleum Company in the second place, then Abu Qir Petroleum Company and Badr El-Din Petroleum Company.
