juwi has implemented an off-grid project in Egypt. A combination of wind and solar power generates enough clean electricity for driving several water pumps and a desalination plant.
A battery storage of around 500 kilowatt (KW) hour ensures that groundwater can be extracted around the clock for watering the wadi’s fields. The project has been put out for tender by the University of Alexandria. In Wadi El-Natrun the university researches how scanty soil can become accessible for agriculture. It is juwi’s first project in Egypt.
