Fact Book




Before 1970 most of the electrical power produced in Egypt was generated by thermal plants. The 12 turbines on the Aswan High Dam, completed in 1970, dramatically increased the country's total installed capacity, which by the early 1990s stood at 14.2 million kilowatts. The annual output in the early 1990s was 47 billion kilowatt-hours.
