Prime Minister Sherif Ismail on Sunday 29/5/2016 called for rationalizing the consumption of electricity and fuel to ease the burden on imports and save foreign currency.
The premier directives were issued at a meeting with Electricity Minister Mohamed Shaker and Transport Minister Galal Saeed to discuss a number of development projects being implemented to provide high-quality services for citizens in all sectors.
During the meeting, Shaker has submitted a complete report on rationalizing the consumption and improvement of the efficiency of electricity and renewable energy.
The electricity sector is keen on upgrading the level of electricity service provided to all citizens nationwide to enhance the standard of living and well-being of all Egyptians, Shaker asserted.
The Egyptian Electricity Holding Company (EEHC) has taken all measures to rationalize the electricity consumption through the distribution of about eight million LED lamps of a total of 13 million ones to a huge number of electricity distribution companies nationwide, the electricity minister underlined.
