Harvested solar energy from the edge of the Sahara Desert, Egypt is all set to reach Europe to power millions of houses with clean electricity. By supplying 3000 megawatts of renewable energy Sahara to power European homes through massive Gregy undersea interconnection cable.
Green Energy Interconnector with its 853 miles (1,373 kilometers) length cable will ship around 3,000 megawatts of green electricity from northern Egypt to Attica, Greece and then to the European grid that will power almost every house and heavy trade. One-third of supply from the cable will power Greek heavy industries and another one third will be shipped via shared grids to Bulgaria and Italy. The last portion of one third will be utilized for production of green hydrogen.
John Karydas, CEO of Renewables, Copelouzos Group, said, “By bringing 3 gigawatts of clean energy to Europe, via Greece, we are helping Europe wean itself off Russia’s fossil fuels and natural gas. Also, the green energy we will transport will be much cheaper than today’s energy prices. You understand that this will help both Greek and European consumers.” This Gregy international cable running from Sidi Barrani costs an estimate of €3.5 billion. This green electricity mission is predicted to be accomplished earlier than the tip of last decade with Copelouzos Group.
Production of electrical energy will take place in the photo voltaic vitality services in Egypt along with different African international locations. This generated power will serve in shared grids of Greece, Italy, and Bulgaria. Solar fields in Egypt enjoy benefits from its connections with North African countries of Sudan and Libya. And aspire to become the largest exporter of renewable energy to southeast Europe.

The XLinks Moroccan-UK Power Project undertook a similar massive effort in 2021, including an undersea cable from Morocco to Denver in the United Kingdom covering a distance of 2,300 miles (3,700 kilometers) to bring 10 gigawatts of clean power. On its website Xlinks outlined, “Once complete, the project will be capable of supplying 8 percent of Great Britain’s electricity needs.”
“Alongside the consistent output from its solar panels and wind turbines, an onsite 20GWh/5GW battery facility will provide sufficient storage to reliably deliver each and every day, a dedicated, near-constant source of flexible and predictable clean energy for Britain, designed to complement the renewable energy already generated across the UK,” XLinks further added. So now, after XLinks we have Sahara to power European homes through massive Gregy undersea interconnection cable.
