Egypt is “entering the world of solar energy” after it inaugurated the largest solar power plant in the world early this year, RT reported on Friday. Reporting the remarks of Egyptian official Hassan Abaza, RT said that the superpower plant was built in the city of Aswan, southern Egypt. It began supplying the national grid last December. Abaza reiterated that this is the largest solar power plant in the world, noting that his country is heading towards more investment in this kind of power as part of its plans for sustainable development. He also said that solar power energy is better than oil because it is renewable, stressing that the “green economy” is a mechanism to achieve sustainable development.
