power plant, select the bidders and initiate the construction of the 150 MW Integrated Solar Combined Cycles Systems (ISCCS’). 0 Complete the studies, prepare and issue RFP and selection of bidders, and launch in Zafarana, 60 MW wind farm in cooperation with the Danish Governmental Agency DANIDA, the first phase (33 MW) of 60 MW wind farm in cooperation with German Reconstruction Bank, and 60 MW wind farm in cooperation with Spain. 0 Launch the five hybrid wind/diesel systems 6x25 kW wind turbines and 2x100 kW diesel-generator each for electrification of rural and remote areas along Northern coasts on Mediterranean. 0 Complete the equipment of solar energy, biomass conversion research laboratories. 0 Upgrade the renewable energy information center. ( d ) Analysis of the policies and assessment of the plans The policies adopted and the plans executed by NAREA, led to many achievements of this Authority. Most, if not all, achievements are in the large scale grid connected renewable energy projects (mega-watt wind farms solar thermal power plants, etc…), It is time now that NAREA gives more attention to small scale system and rural energy services. It is therefore recommended that NAREA adds to its policy issues two or more issues such as: 0 Launching a program on integrated rural energy planning in cooperation with OEP. 0 Establishing a mechanism to provide rural energy services in cooperation with Integrated Rural Development Program/Ministry of local Administration. Then, NAREA should include in its yearly plans a crash program to deal with the proposed additional policy issues. III.2. Role of Institutional Framework in the Development of Sustainable Rural Energy As previously mentioned, one of the main features of a sustainable rural energy system is much greater utilization of renewable energy resources. Some of the technologies for renewable source of energy are less mature than the conventional technologies or have not been yet adapted to specific local conditions of the Egyptian rural areas, or their cost may still compare unfavorably with that of more traditional technologies. The widespread adoption of more

sustainable energy systems is influenced - among other factors - by the institutional framework, which is the only party capable of changing the institutional environment such as establishing norms and standards, issuing relevant regulations, giving some incentives, reducing taxation, etc…for renewable energy technologies. Also, with the free market economy, the recourse to market forces and to private entrepreneurship must be adequately steered by the governmental institutions, so as to avoid the danger that socially important but economically less rewarding tasks are left behind, which is the case particularly for rural electrification and provision of sustainable energy for the poor.
