New City Development in Egypt – District Cooling and other Smart and Green City

Get direct access and insights in the district cooling developments in Egypt and a broader idea on Egypt’s ambitions on new city development plans.

New Expansion and Investments
Egypt’s government is developing 20 new fourth generation cities, which are all required to adopt district cooling systems to supply the most energy efficient cooling possible. The developments will require a variety of smart solutions including pioneering district energy technologies.

In Egypt, approximately 50 pct. of the total power consumption relates to air-conditioning and refrigeration, why Egypt is urgently seeking assistance and advice, as district cooling is considered a necessary solution in new city developments. Egypt seeks to maximize the benefit of district cooling applications.

In this webinar The Trade Council at the Danish Embassy in Cairo will present the market developments and future investment plans for new city developments, and Devcco will present the project of the emerging new city, El Alamein, supported by UNEP and UNIDO.

Collectively this webinar will clarify the opportunities for Danish companies in Egypt and focus on the development plans and the Egyptian appetite for new district cooling technologies – and possibly other smart and green city solutions.
