Solar plant developed by Germany-based Ib Vogt GmbH and a local company called Infinity Solar Systems, stands in the desert south of Cairo, Egypt, on Tuesday, March 13, 2018. “In this plant, we have 200,000 solar panels and 780 sun trackers that allow the panels to move toward the solar position throughout the day,” Amine el-Edghiri, Ib Vogt’s project manager, said during a media tour of the facility 650 kilometers (400 miles) south of Cairo on the fringes of the Nubian Desert. Photographer: Salma El Wardany/Bloomberg
