Abstract

The electricity sector in Egypt SAM for the year 2014/2015 was disaggregated into different subsectors based on the sources of electricity generation (electricity-oil, electricity-natural gas, electricity-hydropower, electricity-wind, and electricity-solar). The main challenge we faced when we disaggregated the electricity sector was that there is no specific classification related to renewable energy offered by supply and use tables which is usually the major source for SAM. To solve this problem, we used the shares of renewables in electricity generation obtained from the annual bulletin for electricity and energy statistics published by (CAPMAS 2016) and the IEA database. The shares of electricity generation by sources were divided between oil 21.21%, natural gas 69.13%, hydropower 8.6%, wind 0.90%, and 0.15% for solar. To estimate the intermediate demand for electricity generation, we calculated the input shares from natural gas, petroleum products, and chemicals products for all electricity generating technologies (table 5). These calculations are based on the value of the fuel used in electricity generation derived from the annual bulletin for electricity and energy statistics published by (CAPMAS 2016).
