Developing Solar PV

Developing Solar PV power generation Having 150,700 square meters of roofs available from Governorate’s buildings in the City of Luxor and assuming 60% of these roofs can be used, we would have 90,500 square meters for Solar PV installation, meaning a capacity to install 12,500 kWp – a global investment of 16 million € for a potential production of 22,500 MWh/y. The priority action #5 recommends a staged approach with a first round tapping on 50% of the entire potential, meaning installing 7,500 kWp: for example, 50 units of 100 kWp and 10 units of 250 kWp. Nb. of 1 kWp unit Investment Prod in kWh Revenues EGP/y Revenues Euro/y RoI 7 500 10 000 000 14 238 560 15 450 261 751 838 13,30 Developing Solar Water Heating systems Such systems can be used to cover hot water needs in any buildings. There use is even more interesting in schools, mosques, and hospitals with higher requirements for hot water. One Governorate building with 100 municipal staff and 25 visitors on average (125 persons) would need 1,250 litres per day (10 litres each). This need will be easily covered with 14 collectors of 1 square meter each. Kits available on the market are composed of a 300 litres tank and 3 collectors. 5 units of this type will be sufficient to cover the needs of such a building. Each unit costs EGP 12,000 (€ 584) all-inclusive (2017 prices). The installation will cost 2,920 € and produce 13,800 kWh/y avoiding electricity expenses of 497 €/y, hence offering a payback period of 6 years maximum. In the meantime it will reduce GHG emission by 7,500 KCO 2eq/y. The priority action #5 propose to equip develop 100 buildings with 5 SWH units of 3 collectors. Cost in € for 100 x 5 units Production in KWh Avoided costs in € Avoided GHG tCO2eq/y 292 000 1 380 000 49 693 27.3 Note that elementary school would require more water per user, hence the ration of Units / user might change, but the overall economy of this component of the project remains the same, with the same payback period of maximum 6 years. 3. Organization and procedures Formal approval Staff allocated to prepare, implement, monitor action # 5 182

The development would require the following entities for issuing permits, approvals and follow up process: - Ministry of Investment and International Cooperation (MoIIC) to coordinate loans and funding from IFCs, - Ministry of Local Development (MoLD), - MoERE – NREA for SWH installation on buildings roofs, - The EIA Department of the Environmental Affairs Agency (EEAA) –Ministry of Environment (MoEnv) to conduct an Environmental and Social Impact Assessments (ESIAs) study on the impacts of converting Governorate buildings with renewable energy such as solar PV and SWH systems, - Operation permit by MoHUUD – for buildings modification permit – Governorate issue, - City Council represented by the Governor, - Governorate and Governor’s approvals. Staff training Governorate (Municipality) team, which will be assigned to the EAU, need to receive a proper training on several subjects, including: • Technical questions related PV development and energy issues related to CAA, • Pedagogy and communication to run efficient awareness programmes, • Strategic management of sustainable energy issues, • Organisational solutions and technical questions related refurbishment of buildings to operate by solar PV and SHW, and • Project management. Also, a Strategic Sustainable Energy Unit (SSEU) to be developed and established to oversee the training of staff and all concerned issue and ensure the implementation of the plan actions of SECAP. - Governorate of Luxor and City of Luxor, - City Council represented by the Governor, - MoERE and NREA, - Ganoub El Wady Holding Company and EETC in case of on-grid connection, - MoHUUD and - MoEnv (EEAA). Role of Partners - All stakeholders should be invited to specific workshop to receive training in order to transfer the message of clean and green Governorate (municipal) buildings plan (GMBP) to all parties involved to coordinate with the Governorate, including MoRER, NREA and MoEnv, - The Governorate and City of Luxor to coordinate the procedures approval with different related authorities in close contact with the Governorate, such as: MoERE and NREA, EEAA, MoHUUD to ensure constant operation and efficiency, - NREA to be involved to check on the installation procedures of the connections, implementation and testing, and monitor the operation and to facilitate the action project follow up the implementation upon funding. 4. Summary of related Awareness Raising (AR) actions A communication plan needs to be developed to highlight the benefits of a new strategic and comprehensive sustainable energy (energy efficiency) plan to brand the City of Luxor as a clean and green city including the use solar PV cells and SWH systems on Governorate (municipal) buildings’ roofs. 183
