Egypt is using industry partnerships to transform its energy security. Investments from international oil and gas companies partnering with Egypt have resuscitated Egypt’s gas sector, securing reliable power to households and industries. Gas generation is creating the baseload foundation for new investments in renewable energy. Can Egypt extend this partnership model through the East Mediterranean Gas Forum to transform regional energy relationships and create outlets to international markets? Later in 2022, Egypt will chair COP27. Will industry partnerships become a new model for engagement at COP27, bringing the engineering skills and capacity to operate at scale and create new roadmaps for innovation and emissions reductions? Can a new role for industry partnerships align the capacity to reduce emissions with global ambitions for net zero?
