Minister of Trade, Industry, Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises Mounir Fakhry Abdel-Nour said Friday 21/11/2014 that diversification of energy sources and development of new and renewable energy need a long time where the petroleum companies seek to increase gas and petroleum production at a time when the energy ministry encourages development of renewable energy sources, but these measures take time and "we should rationalize consumption of energy in our homes and plants for the continuation of production and growth".
The remarks came in the minister’s speech during his participation in the activities of the Euro-Egyptian forum on energy at Aquarium Grotto Garden in Zamalek.
The activities of the forum will be attended by Prime Minister Ibrahim Mahlab, Minister of Petroleum Sherif Ismaeil, Minister of Electricity Mohamed Shaker and James Moran, the EU ambassador to Egypt.
