- Ensure energy

- Ensure energy consumption reduction and the integration of renewable energy development into all activities and projects taking place in its territory in order to reduce fossil-based energy consumption. - Promote energy cost-benefit analyses (including cost of externalities) in on-going and future projects. - Set an example in terms of responsible energy management, especially by promoting concrete initiatives in energy efficiency and energy conservation, research and innovation towards sustainable practices, efficient and climate friendly infrastructure development, etc. - Partnerships: encourage citizens, private sector, NGO participation in the development and management of energy resources and renewables in the Governorate (Municipality), and - Educate and inform the local population and actors about the new Governorate (municipal) vision in favour of energy efficiency and renewables. 3.5. City of Luxor vision and objectives Keeping in mind its specific values and the local context, the City of Luxor develops a strategy consistent with Egypt’s Vision 2030, the Sustainable Development Strategy 2030 and national energy strategy 2035. This strategy is structured around two levers: - 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. Obviously, this strategy will assist the Governorate to reduce its dependency on energy supplies from outside its territory and consequently reducing its financial needs to fund these supplies. The strategy will also generate additional resources within the Governorate boundaries through energy production from local and renewable resources. All of the activities that take place within the Governorate will have to include an energy consumption reduction component and when possible an appropriate a renewable energy development component. While contributing to the protection of the national and global environment (reducing GHG emission to mitigate climate change), these measures also strive to protect the local environment (air and water quality, cleanliness and soil protection). In conformity with current regulations, the Governorate desires to promote a mix of incentive and coercive measures. These measures are obviously in accordance with the municipal code and public policies that favour local development and the protection of energy resources and the environment. As energy consumption and production is dependent on many stakeholders within a given territory, the strategy needs to include all of the concerned actors: public services, local entrepreneurs and companies, including tourism operators, citizen groups, etc. On-going information and awareness raising actions must lead to the strengthening of energy consumption reduction commitments and increasing the production of local renewable energy by actors operating in the Governorate of Luxor and the City of Luxor. The Governorate adopted the following strategic objectives within the framework of its Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plan (SECAP): 1. Reinforce and promote energy efficiency in municipal property, public infrastructure and other local activities. 22

2. Promote the integration of energy efficiency and renewables into public and private housing construction projects in the municipality. 3. Integrate the development of energy efficiency and renewable energy into the municipal sustainable development plan (job creation, local energy efficiency and renewables market, market for local services, etc.). 4. Engage all stakeholders on the territory to promote energy efficiency and renewable energy development. 5. Develop partnerships with all providers that are favourable to the implementation of the SECAP. 6. Inform the public about the true cost of energy and make known the incentives and initiatives that encourage energy conservation and efficiency. 7. Create energy conservation and efficiency measures, renewable energy development and environmental protection communication plans that target the local population and the socioprofessional categories present in the territory of the City of Luxor. 8. Reduce energy needs during peak periods by managing electricity demand and by changing energy and gas consumption behaviours and habits. 9. Coordinate with the government on the national strategy and energy efficiency and renewable energy action plan, as well as on the review of the municipal sustainable energy action plan. The primary objectives of the City of Luxor are: Short-term objectives 2020: - Reduce energy consumption across the board by around 10% to 15%, and - Reduce GHG emission by 10% in 2020, compared to the business as usual scenario (2015 baseline). Medium and long-term objectives 2030: - Boost efforts to reduce energy consumption and improve efficiency resulting in a continuous trend of improvement in energy intensity (energy consumption compared to gross development product), - Continue reducing GHG emission with the objective of reaching at least a reduction of 26 per cent by 2030 and if possible going to 30 per cent reduction compare to the BAU scenario. Such an effort will place the City of Luxor in the appropriate trajectory to match the collective target agreed at COP 21 end of 2015 and known as the Paris Agreement, - Improve quality of life in Luxor and optimize service delivery to inhabitants and all stakeholders in order to speed the energy transition towards sustainable development, and - Doing so, strengthen the City of Luxor attractiveness, positioning the city as an example of responsible tourism and culture. Note that the CES-MED project produced two national reports to be used as reference documents for the Governorate implementing their SECAP: • Institutional and regulatory analysis of energy efficiency and renewable energy development at the municipal level texts related to legislation that promotes investment in the energy efficiency and renewable energy sectors; and 23
