The institutional setup of the energy sector in Egypt is still marked by the tasks of providing sufficient electricity supply and develop oil & gas in Egypt sector based on own reserves. Up to now there is no organization or unit for energy efficiency, whereas renewable energy has got an own authority. A certain coordination of the energy supply ministries and the energy demand side is achieved by the Supreme Council of Energy (SCE), directly coordinated by the Prime Minister.
Oil & gas in Egypt industry functions with relatively little legislation, and there is no general oil or gas law. The key legislative channels are concerned with the establishment, duties and functions of state-owned companies operating in Egypt Oil & gas sector, and with the establishment of a system like a separate transmission system operator. The GoE is planning to set up an independent gas regulator.
In consequence, in Egypt Oil & gas sector, there are few publicized legal rules for energy efficiency or the use of renewable energy. The direct governance of the Ministry of Petroleum includes programs of loss reduction and efficiency. New refineries and LNG terminals are built according to international standards.
