    Author(s): Ayman F. BatishaAyman F. Batisha

    In Egypt, Hydropower sector plays a key role in Climate smart technological solutions to mitigate and adapt climate change. Egypt intends to replace the existing Assiut barrage in Nile River with a new one incorporating a hydropower plant. The technical and economical feasibility of the rehabilitation of the existing barrage including the installation of a low head hydropower plant of about 32 MW is proved. The electricity production of about 250 GWh annually is planed. The optimization of hydropower output will be achieved through mitigation of project-related environmental and social impacts. The implementation of measures to predict, monitor and mitigate or avoid construction and operation impacts is planned. This Paper sets out information relating to the contribution of Hydropower plant of New Assiut Barrage Project towards Adaptation and sustain.. Read More»
