According to the CCIA note that has reached ANGOP, the Angolan ambassador to Egypt, António da Costa Fernandes, met with the chairpersons of Egyptian companies Nord and Contaqa in which these managers expressed interest in investing in Angola’s solar energy sector.

Atef Zayed Nord and Tarek Nasr of Contaqa expressed their interest to visit Angola in the near future, to negotiate with the Angolan authorities and find possible partners for the production of solar energy.

To this end, the Ministries of Energy and Water, Industry, as well as the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Angola will have to develop a strategy to define the framework for this co-operation.

The Sun is a renewable source of energy, safe, clean and with little pollution levels and can be used in various applications and activities in rural and urban areas at low cost.

The North American Space Agency (NASA) has announced that August was the hottest month of the year globally in 136 years.

The need to produce energy with less carbon dioxide emission will allow governments worldwide to invest in the production of solar energy infrastructures.
