Egypt, US discuss clean energy at COP27

The COP27 Climate Change Summit was held in Sharm El-Sheikh. A meeting was held on the sidelines of the summit between Egypt and the US.

El-Molla praised the ministry’s fruitful cooperation with US companies and US institutions operating in Egypt, including the American Chamber of Commerce in Egypt, in a statement.

Mr. Fayyaz said that the US strongly supports the development of an actionable road-map for reducing methane emissions. On Friday, De-carbonization Day at COP27, reducing methane emissions will be one of the highest priorities.

In his view, Egypt has the potential to become a regional energy hub.

Ani cited the establishment of the East Mediterranean Gas Forum (EastMed) as a regional cooperation platform focused on maximizing the region’s natural gas resources and infrastructure as a positive development.
