Current Energy Systems Policies as One of the Tributaries of Sustainable Development in Egypt

The world seeks, in accordance with sustainable development priorities, to impose methodologies that contribute to the maximum benefit from natural resources in obtaining energy; In view of the challenges resulting from the increased need for electric power and the high operational costs of obtaining conventional energy; Which requires an increase in the economic expenditures of the state in addition to the environmental pollution resulting from the use of petroleum materials in power generation and the depletion of oil resources in light of the provision of natural resources at a lower cost that is better for the environment and promotes economic development at the global and national levels. The energy sector has become the target of new national policies attributed to improving generation efficiency and increasing the adoption of non-fossil generation These policies are: assessment of climate change, fuel resource use, water consumption, pollution risk reduction, and reliability of efficient power generation. Hence, the national policies aimed at increasing the role of the contribution of nuclear energy in the energy mix to mitigate climate change, as it provides a large amount of low-cost electricity. and promote progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and mitigating climate change in an environmentally efficient and economically efficient manner and encourage support for technologies, institutions, and actors.
