In 2019, Elsewedy Electric acquired three operational wind farms and two hydroelectric energy assets in Greece. The company, through its four subsidiaries spanning different regions in Greece, namely, Kallisti Energiaki S.A., Aioliki Kylindrias S.A., Aioliki Aderes S.A., and Hydroelektriki Achaias S.A., has successfully secured a 100% renewable energy portfolio with a combined capacity of 64MW.

Notably, Elsewedy Electric played a pivotal role in the Benban Solar Project in Egypt, which is one of the world’s largest solar power plants. Teaming up with Électricite De France’s EDF Renewables, Elsewedy Electric developed, financed, built, owned, and operated two solar PV power plants with a total capacity of 130MW, providing sustainable energy to over 140,000 households and preventing more than 122,000 tonnes of CO2-equivalent emissions annually.

The awards highlighted opposite are part of this magazine’s ‘Sustainability & ESG Awards 2023’ and are just some of the many that Elsewedy Electric has garnered over the years.
