move. Awareness should

move. Awareness should also focus on the fact that Green tourism development doesn’t mean that energy will become abundant. On the contrary, such an awareness campaign should highlight that combining energy efficiency with the use of NG instead of non-clean energy and integrate SWH systems will reduce GHG emissions and make air in the city less polluted. The Awareness Raising Programme (ARP), would include meetings, workshops, lectures and workshops for staff and hotels owners and managers that could encompass several actions: - 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, • The state of progress of the different actions implemented within the framework of the sustainable energy strategy and the SECAP, and • Successful projects in national and foreign municipalities, notably in municipalities that are members of the Covenant of Mayors (CoM). 6. Assumptions and risks - The key challenge will be the time needed to change the mind-set of some owners of hotels, - Organise a proper maintenance system in order to ensure adequate flow of hot water from the SWH systems, yields securing interesting enough Return on Investment (R.o.I.), - Return on investment also depends on the actual occupancy rate in hotels and floating hotels. This means that the first priority should be to increase average occupancy by rationalising the hotel system. Having less capacity with a much higher rate of occupancy will be the best measure to reduce energy consumption, - The medium to low price of diesel set Egyptian General Petroleum Authority - EGPA (MoPMRs) is a challenge, but the story will be different in 2018 with new planned energy tariffs, and - Beyond promoting new green hotels/resorts, reducing energy demand depends on public mobilization. 7. Key success factors 170

• The development of Green hotels and resorts, since it is part of the Governorate of Luxor strategy, would be of an assistance in reducing the yearly energy consumption of non-clean energy and help in greening the city, • Cost of new energy tariff means that any saving will be a significant value and an incentive, • Governor of Luxor determination to seriously act on the energy issue, is obviously vital to this action’s success, • The Governor’s vision and backing of connection of these hotels and resorts with the natural gas network instead of using electricity and diesel as a non-clean energy sources, reduce energy consumption and mitigate GHG emission is of a vital success factor, • Raised capacity of Governorate staff for implementation. 8.
