Infinity Power Holding, the joint venture between the UAE’s Masdar and Egypt’s Infinity, has announced that the solar photovoltaic (PV) plant it has developed in Sharm El-Sheikh is now fully operational, and ready to provide clean, renewable energy to COP27, the ongoing United Nations climate change conference.

Infinity Power, which has been named a ‘Principal Partner’ for COP27, was established in 2020 to target power generation projects through renewable energy sources, including solar and wind technologies on utility- and industrial-scales in Egypt and Africa.

The 6-megawatts (MWp) plant can generate as much as 11,723 megawatt-hours (MWh) of energy per year, enough to power more than 5,000 homes while cutting CO2 emissions by over 4,000 tonnes.

The plant will continue to operate after the conference, providing clean energy to the city. Two other solar plants of equivalent size have also been developed ahead of COP27.

Dr Sultan bin Ahmed Al Jaber, UAE Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology, Special Envoy for Climate Change, and chairman of Masdar, said, “Masdar is fast developing as the partner of choice for many of Egypt’s most important clean energy projects, and I am proud that we are able to deliver clean energy to support COP27 through our Infinity Power platform. The UAE and Egypt share a common commitment to expanding the supply of renewable energy and supporting sustainable economic growth.”

Mohamed Jameel Al Ramahi, CEO of Masdar, said, “This solar power plant will help deliver clean energy to the conference and will also provide a legacy of sustainability for the people of Sharm El-Sheikh in future years.”

Mohamed Ismail Mansour, Chairman, Infinity Power, said, “We are delighted to be able to support COP27 in Egypt, by delivering clean, renewable energy-based solutions to power the event. We will continue providing sustainable energy solutions to Sharm El-Sheikh for years to come through our solar plant, providing clean power to a city with an important role in Egyptian diplomacy and international relations.”
