move. Awareness should

move. Awareness should also focus on the fact that Green water transport – Tourism development doesn’t mean that energy will become abundant. On the contrary such awareness campaign should highlight that combining renewable energy and the use of NG/CNG instead of non-clean energy will make tourist cruise boats and small passenger boats would reduce GHG emissions and make air and water less polluted. The Awareness Raising Programme (ARP), would include meetings, workshops, lectures and workshops for staff and citizens that could take part in several initiatives: - The creation of a permanent municipal information point, - The organisation of an open house, - The publication of articles in local and regional newspapers, - The distribution of brochures and posters, - The distribution of an information letter that includes current events on sustainability and local success stories: • Information on national energy policies and local implications, • The prevailing energy conditions in the municipality, and • The progress of the different actions implemented within the framework of the SE strategy and the SECAP Successful projects in municipalities, notably in municipalities that are members of the Covenant of Mayors (CoM). 6. Assumptions and risks - The key challenge will be to change the mind set of some boat owners, - Organise a proper maintenance service in order to ensure adequate CNG and renewable electricity management, - The medium to low price of diesel set by the Egyptian General Petroleum Authority - EGPA (MoPMRs) is a challenge, but this will change in 2018 with new planned energy tariffs, and - Beyond promoting new green cruise boats, reducing energy demands is dependent on public mobilization. 7. Key success factors • Cost of new Energy tariff means that any saving will be a significant value and an incentive, • Municipality determination to act in a comprehensive way on sustainable energy, mainly CNG, SWH, and PV, and the Governor of Luxor dedication to support the plan and raise capacity building for the Governorate staff to optimize implementation, and • The boats owners perceiving the benefits of a better management of their fleet and the potential impact of profiling Luxor as a green tourism and cultural destination. 144
