Egyptera plans to settle on waste-to-energy feed-in tariff next week

Egyptera to settle on waste-to-energy feed-in tariff next week: The Egyptian Electricity Utility and Consumer Protection Agency (better known as Egyptera) is expected to settle on the feed-in tariff for waste-to-energy projects next week, sources at the agency tell Al Borsa. The newspaper claims the Electricity Ministry is planning to set a FiT rate of EGP 1.03-1.04 per kWh for refuse-derived fuel, which is the same rate the ministry charges homes in the highest energy consumption tier. Egyptera officials are pushing to set the tariff for RDF at EGP 1.35 kWh. This contradicts earlier reports that Cabinet had agreed to set a FiT rate of EGP 1.60 for refuse-derived fuel, while setting the rate for biogas and burnable agricultural waste at EGP 1.45 and EGP 1.30 per kWh, respectively.
