Ahead of the 27th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27), Egypt launched various environment-friendly projects, including a vast charging station for electric buses in Sharm El-Sheikh.
Elsewedy Electric T&D has been declared the main contractor as well as tasked with supplying the charging units to the station designed to charge up to 140 electric buses. The 100,000 square meters electric charging station will also be used for maintaining and cleaning the buses as part of a robust transport system in the city ahead of the highly anticipated event.
Moreover, the government is planning to establish 50 new electric charging stations in different places in the city to serve private electric cars. The new stations are built in collaboration with Elsewedy electric as a part of President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi’s initiative to transform Sharm El-Sheikh into a green city by the start of the conference.
Going green is a priority for Elsewedy Electric, and the company reduced the total scope 1&2 absolute emissions by 17% in 2020 compared to 2017; and reduced its scope 2 emissions by 24% since 2017.
