City of Luxor / Governorate fleet The fleet directly managed by the Governorate of Luxor represents a bit more than 2000 vehicles and heavy machinery. All this equipment is pretty aged and lack energy efficiency. The City of Luxor could engage in a comprehensive plan to: - Continue upgrading the fleet management tool and invest more in people awareness in order to reduce energy consumption of the fleet as its actually stands, and - Replace old vehicles with new ones, looking for progressive replacement through leasing to avoid too heavy investments. Assumptions: - Improved management and awareness lead to a 20% reduction in energy consumption by 2030, and - Progressive replacement of the fleet will lead to 30% additional reduction by 2030. Expected results: Energy in MWh/year Situation in 2015 Cut expected in 2030 Situation in 2030 GHG in tCO2eq/year Energy GHG Energy GHG GHG (BAU) Cut / BAU Governorate of Luxor fleet 10,686 3,723 - 5,343 -1,896 4,840 39,2 % Improve fleet management (20% cut) - 2,137 - 745 Progressive fleet replacement (30% cut) - 3,206 - 1,117 Budget: These figures are rough estimates of budget required per action for the period 2018-2020 and ROI.

It is not only good to educate Governorate staff for them to make necessary efforts to promote energy conservation and environmental protection in their daily work, it is also necessary to develop the Municipality capacity to promote awareness among all stakeholders in the City of Luxor. Environmental Awareness Unit As Governorate staff, population and local stakeholders lack information and need to be mobilized to act on 56

energy conservation, energy efficiency and more generally on environmental protection, it is necessary to strengthen efforts to inform and engage all the publics in contributing to the implementation of the different components of the SECAP. The Governorate of Luxor will set up a dedicated unit, focusing on raising awareness in different publics to optimise the impact of the measures proposed to reduce energy consumption and improve the quality of life in the city, including proper management of energy, water and waste. Such a unit would be part of the communication department of the Governorate of Luxor, been connected with the appropriate service: electricity department, water delivery service and waste management unit. The Environmental Awareness Unit (EAU) should work as a focal point to develop initiatives that will engage the public to change behaviour, to preserve energy and water, and actively contribute to the cleanliness of the city. The unit will work in partnership with different stakeholders in order to facilitate the duplication of initiative and reach out more people. In that sense the EAU unit will be a key component of the SECAP implementation, as most of the impacts expected for the action plan, depends on the adequate mobilization and engagement of stakeholders to cease the opportunities offered to reduce their energy consumption and, doing so contribute to the success of the programme. The EAU will launch its mission focusing on 3 priority targets - Governorate staff; children & mothers; tourist operators – to inform on issues at stake regarding climate change, energy management and environment challenges in the city; provide guidance to behavioural changes; and invite all stakeholders to engage in concrete actions to help reducing energy consumption, and improve the urban environment (preserving water, reducing waste and littering to promote a cleaner city) including adaption to climate change. The unit will develop its activities engaging cooperation with existing groups and institutions: - Spreading information and training material (posters, brochures, stickers, etc.) to remind everyone of the importance of energy saving. This must include training given by Governorate’ employees, - Develop an annual event “Energy festival or Energy day” where best practices could be demonstrated, and innovative projects celebrated. Such a festival could be promoted through a large advertising campaign mobilising all traditional media but also social networks online, and - Unroll specific awareness campaigns among specific target groups: • Developing a network of “Positive energy schools”, schools that will be producing more energy than they consume, through a combination of energy conservation / energy efficiency measures and the development of Solar PV on schools’ roofs. Teachers should be engaged in such programmes to use all the potential of the technical development, as support for training students. • Mobilise families through the training of women - mothers as there are often the one managing households’ expenses and can be the right drivers to promote efficiency, • Promoting an awareness raising campaign in mosques, developing solar heating and solar PV equipment and inviting imams to promote responsible behaviour regarding energy consumption, • Mobilise all tourism’ operators to explain that tourists will be more and more receptive to practices that support the energy transition and the fight against climate change. Raising awareness would be the support to gather more people, university researchers, businessmen, communication experts and local citizen groups, beyond the Municipality team, to work together on a broad mobilisation to reduce energy consumption and develop renewable energy production. Raising awareness should also be seen as a tool to push citizens to take ownership of the energy and climate 57
