CAIRO – 7 August 2017: Egypt's electricity exports reached about $14.1 million during the first five months of the current year, the Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics (CAPMAS) said Monday.
This, however, represented a decline in the sector’s exports compared to the same period of 2016, when electricity exports reached $20.2 million.
CAMPAS figures showed a leap in electricity exports in May as in the period between January and April, the sector’s exports recorded $3.3 million.
The exports were directed to Jordan and Libya, which are the same two countries that Egypt sent power to in the corresponding period in 2016.
Jordan received $4.9 million in electricity imports from Egypt, compared to $9.9 million in the period between January and May 2016. Meanwhile, Libyan imports in the same domain valued at $9.1 million, slightly dropped from $10.3 million in the same period last year.
