"SAGEP" is the largest "off-grid" solar project in Egypt with the most modern technology worldwide: the solar-off-grid hybrid technology

Winfried Brunner, Project Designer

In 2008, FKHA designed and implemented a modern solar system at the oldest Christian monastery in the world at St. Antony Monastery, Red Sea, Egypt. The project was implemented in two phases as follows.

   

 

 

St. Antony Monastery 334 km southeast of Cairo (See here)

The monastery initially stated that the energy requirement was 500 kW. It was the project planning task to determine the actual need and all possible savings, since the monastery could not measure the need at all. It was more or less estimated from the connected values ​​of the individual customers.
The project planning was based on a maximum requirement of 300 kW and an average requirement of 220 kW.
The project was implemented in two phases. This was mainly due to the fact that it was not easy to finance such a large system in one step, and the monastery also had to familiarize itself with the use of solar technology for the first time. For a 300 kW solar system with control, a financial requirement of between € 600,000 and € 700,000 was estimated
The FKHA association was founded in Munich specifically for the project planning:
"The Circle of Friends of St. Antonius"

  • Phase 1: 10 kWp (kWpeak) -- funded by Misereor, SOVELLOW, and FKHA. This phase was installed by the German company SOVELLOW GmbH.

Starting with a small off-grid system with 10 kWp should convince all sides of the benefits of solar energy as a sustainable contribution to the preservation of "creation" and convey confidence. In order to make this benefit “visible” for the monastery and the visitors, who usually arrive between 4:00 and 5:00, this system should also have a battery storage for the lighting of the monastery paths from 3:30 to 8:00 a.m.

          

Due to the small system output (<2% of the average "monastery consumption"), the system can be fed directly into the monastery network.
In addition, the collected donations and the decision of the monastery to carry out the construction work under the direction of an experienced person, and Misereor's promise to cover the still open financial requirements, were decisive for the start with this size of plant.
Knowing that solar energy was hardly known and used in Egypt at the time, a show room was built at the same time, in which the extraction and use of solar energy were explained.
