Find Green Prophet at the 2nd Annual DII Conference in Cairo

Dii, Kuryamat, Cairo, Egypt, Desert, renewable energy, DesertecGreen Prophet is crossing the desert in a bus to attend one of the most important renewable energy conferences on earth.

Green Prophet is heading across the desert to attend the second annual Dii Conference being held at the swanky Semiramis InterContinental Hotel in Cairo. Part of a concerted push to develop wind and solar energy in Africa and the Middle East, the Desertec conference being held on the 2nd and 3rd of November is one of the most important gatherings of its kind. This is an opportunity for business and government leaders from MENA and Europe to discuss the various opportunities and challenges associated with growing and exporting the desert’s numerous renewable energy resources.

The conference will be hosted by Egypt’s Prime Minister Dr. Essam Sharaf, who says that the Egyptian government “shall spare no effort to turn this international event into a real success.” Topics to be discussed include regulatory challenges associated with developing renewables (specifically Concentrated Solar Power, Photovoltaics, and Wind Power), success factors, challenges of long distance transmission, and renewables market integration. We will also attend a tour of the Kuraymat hybrid gas and solar energy plant on Friday November 4th, so come on by and introduce yourself!
