- Reduce energy

- Reduce energy consumption in all sectors through energy conservation and efficiency, in order to provide better services while reducing costs and impacts, and - Promote energy production from locally available renewable resources in order to cover as far as possible energy needs from these decarbonised sources. The City of Luxor - Governorate of Luxor developed and announced a Strategic Plan 2017, which promotes many projects in the areas of infrastructure. The strategy is centred on the objective of promoting Luxor as a green city. Within this strategic plan, converting Governorate building to more sustainable practices, energy conservation and efficiency as well as developing energy production from renewable sources is essential, to demonstrate public authorities’ leadership. In addition, the Governorate is also intending to support the plan by informing and raising awareness of all Governorate’ staff and citizens on the impact of climate change, upcoming risks and adaptation actions, as well as the importance of applying sustainable energy measures. Therefore, this priority action # 5 Green Governorate Buildings Plan - City of Luxor is in line with the tentative vision and strategy of the Governorate of Luxor and supports its implementation. Principal partners and stakeholders • Governorate of Luxor – City of Luxor (Municipality) • City Council represented by the Governor of Luxor • Ministry of Electricity and Renewable Energy (MoERE) • New and Renewable Energy Authority (NREA) • Ministry of Housing, Utilities and Urban Development (MoHUUD) • Egyptian Green Building Council (Egypt-GBC) • Ministry of Environment (MoEnv) – EEAA • Ministry of Investment and International Cooperation (MoIIC) Contact person in the local authority Dr Ramadan Seddik, Director of Environmental Affairs – Governorate of Luxor Process The Environmental Awareness Unit (EAU) will be a key component of the SECAP implementation, as most of the impacts expected for the action plan, depend on the adequate mobilization and engagement of stakeholders to cease the opportunities offered to reduce energy consumption. Pursuing so, would contribute to the success of the SECAP. The planned action is set through the following assessments and development: • Preliminary plan and specific study of developing an awareness unit, • Allocating staff for the Awareness Unit, • Involvement of Stakeholders, • Preliminary plan to study the possibility of installing solar PV systems onto the Governorate buildings’ roofs, 178

Technical description Link to Governorate (municipal) development plan The SECAP is built on three drivers: a) reduce energy consumption; b) develop energy production; and c) climate adaptation actions. Hence, greenhouse gas emissions from Governorate services, including (Municipal) buildings, are vital for the Governorate of Luxor strategy and climate adaptation actions. Thus, it is essential to develop a comprehensive plan of greening the Governorate’s (municipal) buildings and attaining the vision of the Governorate Luxor in making the City of Luxor Green City 2030 and improving quality of life in the urban area yet attaining Egypt’s vision 2030. The comprehensive plan will also enhance the clean energy profile and improve the Governorate’s sustainable energy prospectus yet contribute to achieving Egypt’s Sustainable Development Strategy (SDS) 2030. In this respect, the Governorate will particularly contribute to Egypt’s SDS key performance indicators (KPIs) relevant to SECAP, mainly in Energy, Urban development, Environment and Domestic energy policy, e.g., energy: 179
