The presidents of the United Arab Emirates, UAE, and Egypt witnessed the signing of an agreement to develop one of the world’s largest onshore wind projects in Egypt.

Report says the Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the UAE’s renewable energy firm Masdar alongside its joint venture with Egypt’s main renewable energy developer Infinity and Hassan Allam Utilities.

The country’s renewable energy authority said in an annual report that wind projects would save Egypt an estimated 5 billion dollar in annual natural gas costs, the statement said. Egypt’s total installed power capacity was around 59.5 GW in 2019/2020.

Meanwhile, report says when completed, the wind farm would be part of Egypt’s Green Corridor initiative, a grid dedicated to renewable energy projects that are aimed at ensuring renewable energy makes up 42% of the country’s energy mix by 2035.

A man has been arrested after a protester threw eggs at King Charles III and his wife Queen Consort Camilla during a visit to York.

The protester was restrained by police as crowds gathered at Micklegate Bar, the traditional royal entrance into the city, to greet the couple.

He was heard to shout “this country was built on the blood of slaves” as he was restrained by North Yorkshire Police.

The force said a 23-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of a public order offence and remained in custody.

Meanwhile, people in the crowd started chanting “God save the King” and “shame on you” at the demonstrator.
