Egypt will sign a deal this week with Abu Dhabi’s Masdar to build a 200 megawatt wind farm, as part of a plan to generate 20 percent of the country’s energy needs from renewable sources by 2020, an official said on Wednesday.

Egypt, an oil and gas producer, has been developing wind power along its eastern Red Sea coast. It already has wind farms at Zafarana and Hurghada in the area and now has installed capacity of 430 megawatts of wind energy.

The agreement will allow for the construction and start of implementation of the first 200 megawatt wind farm in the country.
