Ministry of Electricity Plans to Stop Load Shedding by End of 2024

The Ministry of Electricity and Renewable Energy announced that continuous efforts are being made to bridge the financial gap to minimize load shedding, with the aim of ending the need for load shedding entirely by the end of 2024.

Dr. Mohamed Shaker, the Minister of Electricity and Renewable Energy, released a statement explaining that distribution companies have developed specific maps for managing power cuts, ensuring a controlled process. Certain areas are exempt from power cuts entirely, indicating a strategic approach to electricity distribution management.

The announcement emphasized the significant improvement in Egypt's electricity situation since 2014, when the country faced a deficit exceeding 6,000 megawatts. The current daily load shedding of 2 to 3 gigawatts is intended to save fuel and is expected to be a temporary measure, with the goal of limiting load shedding to a maximum of two hours per day.
