SOLAR POWER SYSTEM IN EGYPT

November, 16, 2020

God Almighty has blessed Egypt with a tremendous capacity and a great wealth of solar energy … as Egypt has the highest rates of solar radiation reception in the world (3000 kWh / year), and 96% of the area of Egypt is A desert that has not been used nor has its bounties, including solar energy, used until now. And although Egypt has areas that fall within the scope of the most receiving regions of solar radiation in the world. In addition to the sand from which solar panels are made that are used in the electricity that is produced. Of solar energy (raw materials), as an area in the New Valley was recently discovered that contains more than 450 billion cubic meters of sand that contains 99% pure silicon oxide, which is a great wealth in the field of solar energy and the manufacture of its tools. In Egypt, there are many regions that contain pure white silica sand, despite all of that However, Egypt has not yet entered the scope of benefiting from solar energy.
Solar Energy is one of the renewable energy sources and the most abundant in the world, and it is solar radiation that can be used in several things, the most important of which are: production of chemical reactions, heat production and electricity generation, in addition to the fact that solar energy is spread all over the world. It is considered a clean source that does not cause pollution, so if it is exploited and utilized appropriately, it will satisfy a large proportion of the world’s energy needs in the future.
Solar energy is generated by thermal motors or photovoltaic converters. Technologies that rely on the exploitation of positive solar energy include the use of photovoltaic panels and a solar thermal collector, along with mechanical and electrical equipment, to convert sunlight into other useful sources of energy.
In 2020, dependence on renewable energies will be about 44%, while in 2030 it will be about 53%, and in 2040 it will be approximately 72%. We note the increasing investment of solar energy, bio-energy and wind energy, while the dependence on energy generated from water currents will remain almost unchanged, and we note that future sovereignty will be for solar energy up to 50% of all renewable energies.
The importance of the solar energy project is represented in the clean electrical energy that can be obtained, in addition to the ability to sell this energy at great prices, and at the same time provide non-renewable energy such as coal, petroleum and natural gas, who are at a high cost, which reduces the budget of any country.
The importance of this project revolves around the great profit that everyone who thinks about establishing this project gets, in addition to obtaining energy from the sun, which is energy that is not implemented at low prices, instead of relying on gas and petroleum at high prices.
This project requires some of the necessary supplies that are required to generate solar energy, the first of which is the sun, which is the main element of this project, as its energy is from the operation of the project: –
• Solar panels: There are two main types of solar panels, which are mono panels, which are known as “mono”, and it is distinguished by that it works with greater capacity in places that are cold. And the second type is the polycrystalline panels, which are characterized by working more capacity in places where the temperature is high, so in our Arab countries this type is relied upon.
• Batteries for solar energy: The project needs a number of solar energy batteries, whose function is to store solar energy during the day, for use during the night, and there are a number of types.

ENERGY SOURCES IN EGYPT

November, 4, 2020

Energy is an extremely important element that is involved in all sectors in the lives of individuals until it has become an integral part of the activities of daily life, and energy is defined as the ability to perform and do a job and has the ability to cause a specific or radical change in a certain aspect, and examples of uses Energy Exploitation of oil derivatives to operate factories and move transportation means and others.
Types of energy: – Thermal, electrical power, Nuclear energy, Hydroelectric power, Wind Energy, Tidal Energy, Chemical energy and Solar energy.
There are two types of energy sources:
Renewable energy sources ; are known as the sources that provide energy permanently and inexhaustible, and their source is natural, whether limited or unlimited, they are renewed as soon as they are depleted and depleted, and the advantage of being clean and environmentally friendly, and do not produce any environmental pollution, and examples of types of renewable energy: Tidal phenomenon, Water flow, Wind intensity, Sun rays, Sustainable biofuel and Earth’s core heat.
Non-renewable energy sources; which are characterized by their inability to be available permanently, and they have a certain period of time and end at that time as a result of frequent use, and they may be present in nature but in small quantities and need long periods of time to be regenerated and formed, examples of which are fossil fuels and coal.
Non-renewable energy sources are very important; Because they contain large quantities of chemical energy, which are easily converted during the combustion process into thermal energy, and their sources are:
Fossil fuels, this type of fuel needs many years to be regenerated and formed again, as some fossil fuels require two hundred million years to form, meaning that it has been since ancient geological times, and it is likely that they were formed after the decomposition of the remains of living organisms and animals that were buried under Layers of the earth’s crust, by the action of pressure and heat, they turned into fossils. Fossil fuels are divided into three main types:
Charcoal: It is a mixture of carbon materials, and it is two types of charcoal and coal.
Crude oil: Oil is one of the most widespread non-renewable energy sources and the most important of them. It is a black liquid made up of a mixture of organic compounds, and its most important components are carbon and hydrogen and it is called hydrocarbons, which is highly flammable and dense.
Natural gas: Natural gas is one of the cleanest fossil sources, and it includes a number of high-temperature units, and it can be found in the depths of the earth, either alone or mixed with oil, and its basic components are methane, ethane, propane, and butane. The species is extremely important for the preparation of clean fuels, and all the changes that are brought about are the removal of impurities such as hydrogen and carbon dioxide attached to it.
Egypt is the largest non-OPEC oil producer in Africa and the second-largest dry natural gas producer on the continent. The country also serves as a major transit route for oil shipped from the Arabian Gulf to Europe and to the United States.
Energy raw materials in Egypt includes petroleum materials such as petroleum and natural gas, and solid energy raw materials include a number of types, the most important of which are:
Carbon materials:
Like Coal, which is found in Oyoun Moussa and Jabal Al Maghara regions in North Sinai, and the proven reserves in Jabal Al Maghara are 27 million tons, of which about 21 million tons can be mined, and is used as fuel for power plants, cement factories and other industries, and carbon babies that reside in Bada and Thawra areas in the South Governorate Sinai, where the proven reserve is estimated at about 15 million tons, while the potential reserve is estimated at about 60 million tons, and
the oily sludge that is found in the rocks above phosphate formation in the Red Sea and New Valley governorates. The Total geological reserve of Qusier sector at Red Sea Area are 1496 X 106 Ton (15 Pelion ton).
Radioactive ores:
Uranium, which is found in the rocks of the Eastern Desert in the Mesikat region, Jabal Qattar and Sinai, and is used in the production of nuclear energy.

RAW MATERIALS FOR BUILDING AND CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS IN EGYPT

Raw materials for building and construction materials in the Arab Republic of Egypt are of great importance due to their economic benefit, as they are used in addition to being used for building and construction purposes in many industries, and they are present in very large quantities, clear and visible on the surface, which facilitates the process of exploitation. The ores that are used in their condition are limestone, dolomitic, sand, basalt, sand and gravel. Among the raw materials that are converted, such as the desert clay, they are used in the manufacture of building bricks, limestone and sand clay in the manufacture of cement.
The most important raw materials for building materials in Egypt: sandy sediments – gravel and gravel deposits – limestone ore – dolomite ore – desert shale – gypsum and basalt.
Sand represents one of the most important elements of construction and reconstruction materials that God loved Egypt, and it is available near areas of demand and population centers, which led to the improvement of the economics of construction and construction. Sand deposits are spread in many governorates of Egypt, such as Minya Governorate, which has sandy deposits west of the Nile in the west, and the chemical properties and volumetric gradations referred to indicate the suitability of these sand in the manufacture of sand bricks in addition to other industrial purposes such as cement industry. And in Beni Suef Governorate, Fayoum Governorate, Matrouh Governorate, Suez Governorate, and the Sinai Peninsula Governorates.
Gravel and gravel deposits, which are one of the most important ores that are available in large quantities and at sites of consumption, and the most important of which are the areas of the east of the delta and the west of the Nile Valley from the south to Cairo, then the sides of the Delta and agricultural land, as well as the Egypt – Alexandria desert road and the Egypt – Suez and Egypt – Ismailia and Cairo – Fayoum roads, most of which are continental deposits It grows from the Pleistocene era to the modern era. Likewise, on the coasts of the Red Sea, especially in the area extending from the city of Safaga to the southern Egyptian border, huge quantities of gravel and slippery soil are available, forming verandahs at the sides of rivers and ancient valleys and their widespread river terraces. And it spreads in most governorates of Egypt, such as Minya Governorate, and in the New Valley Governorate. Chert is found in the Kharga region in a few places in the Assiut depression – Kharga, and in Assiut and Sohag on the eastern and western side of the Nile, and covers tens of square kilometers, where its thickness changes from one place to another, and in the Qena governorate it is present. Gravel and gravel deposits in many places in Qena Governorate. These sediments cover ancient rocks.
Limestone ore; In Egypt, the limestone covers large areas of the deserts of the republic, forming plateaus or edges extending for hundreds of kilometers with large thick. In the Nile Valley, the Eocene limestone is found on the side of the Nile River from the south of Luxor to Cairo. In the eastern desert, limestone can be seen in Jebel Abu Hadd and Jebel Serai. On the Qusayr – Safaga road, limestone can be traced in Jabal Dawi and Mount Al-Atshan, and on the Gulf of Suez, limestone can be seen on both sides of the Gulf. In North Sinai, limestone can be seen in the mountains of Al Maghara, Al Mintrahah, Umm Mafrout and Jeham, Jabal Al Halal, Jabal Yilj and others. In the western desert of Egypt, limestone can be seen in the oasis of Dakhla, Kharga, Farafra and Bahriya, and these sediments can be seen in South Sinai and in many locations, Limestone can also be traced in northern Egypt from Alexandria to Sallum, and limestone has many uses in industry according to the chemical composition and physical properties appropriate for each industry.
Dolomite stones are found in abundance in Egypt and are suitable for ferrous and non-ferrous metallic industries, chemical industries, cement, sugar, ceramics, building materials, refractory bricks required for lining furnaces and paving for its solidity, port berths and salty watercourses as is the case in the Suez Canal. Dolomite is a sedimentary rock consisting of pure calcium and magnesium carbonate, and the percentage of magnesium carbonate is about 45.74% (21.68% magnesium oxide, 30.41% calcium oxide, 47.73% carbon dioxide. The presence of dolomite rocks in the Nile Valley regions, the governorates of the Suez Canal, the Sinai Peninsula, the Western Desert and the Red Sea Governorate.
Gypsum and gypsum deposits are found in the governorates of Marsa Matrouh and Fayoum and in the Red Sea: there are large deposits of gypsum and anhydrite that extend for hundreds of meters along the coastal plain of the Red Sea, and on both sides of the Gulf of Suez and Ismailia, North Sinai Governorate and South Sinai Governorate.
Basalt; Basalt spreads in Egypt widely north of latitude 28◦ north as a result of volcanic activity in different geological eras, where basalt bodies cover a large area under the Nile Delta and the corresponding areas of the Western Desert.
