Sungrow, the global leading inverter and energy storage supplier for renewables, announced the formal delivery of a package of solar projects in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, upon the arrival of the 27th Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC (COP 27), in collaboration with the official distributor Arab Consulting Office (ACO), generating over 80GWh clean electricity and reducing approximately 55 thousand tonne CO2 per year.

These projects will also power business, transport, and tourism facilities like hotels, airports, official buildings, and conference centres that will be used during COP27, assisting in the transformation of Sharm el-Sheikh into a green city.

To demonstrate the Egyptian government's official commitment and support for climate change mitigation, it implemented a package of measures to transform Sharm el-Sheikh into an integrated sustainable metropolis, one of which is the transition to clean energy.

Many RE players, like ENI, Hassan Allam Utilities, TAQA Arabia, Intro for Sustainable Resources, Altawakol Electric Gila & Solarize, and others, were motivated by green initiatives to create solar projects to provide clean electricity to local companies and residents.

Sungrow has been chosen as the inverter supplier for these important projects. This includes TAQA Arabia's 20 MW clean energy solar plant in Sharm el-Sheikh, which will provide clean electricity to more than 6,000 hotel rooms where attendees for the global event will be staying.

In these projects, Sungrow's industry-leading commercial inverter, the SG110CX, is used, which provides better yield with multiple MPPTs and compatibility with bi-facial modules. Furthermore, this premium inverter meets IP66 and C5 anti-corrosion standards, ensuring reliable and long-term outdoor operation.

Moustafa Mohamed, Director of Sungrow North Africa Region, said:

"We believe these solar projects can strengthen Egypt's clean energy transformation plan and make Sharm El-Sheikh a green and smart city. After completing them, Sungrow achieved altogether 500MW installations there, occupying a dominant market share.

"To strategise the bright market in Egypt and North Africa region, Sungrow provides a comprehensive product portfolio which can be spread nationwide through our trustworthy distributors like Arab Consulting Office. We also own a mature team ready to serve and offer professional guidance. These advantages will help us achieve more milestones in the near future."
