There is an increasing need for the integration of renewable energy into the energy sector in Egypt. As the electricity subsidies are residing for consumers in Egypt, electricity prices are increasing. This increase in energy prices can be mitigated by the integration of renewable energy technologies. One of the most promising renewable energy technologies that will help stabilize the energy situation in Egypt, is Solar Thermal Energy. Solar Thermal Energy has a great potential in Egypt due to the availability and intensity of direct irradiance in Egypt. Therefore, Egypt has an amazing opportunity as a developing country to start perusing solar thermal technologies; these technologies include decentralized and centralized technologies. Decentralized technologies are targeted more for regular consumers and centralized technologies are targeted more for power generation and industries.
