The estimated cost of

The estimated cost of transferring a cruise boat to run by CNG is varying from 252 kEGP (12k€) to 336 kEGP (16 k€) and doesn't cost more than 109,200 EGP (5,200 €) from small boats. The planned action is set through the following assessments and development: • Develop a thorough assessment of the situation of tourists boats (small and large); - Assess the condition, engine size and power capacity required for large cruise boats, - Examine the condition, engine size and capacity required for small dhows, and - Estimate the amount of CNG needed to supply converted boats. • Identify potential technical partners to contribute to boat conversion to CNG, • Implementing the plan to convert cruise boats and small passenger boats to operate with CNG, and • Develop a study to install Solar PV onto cruise boats for supplying electricity from renewable energy. The ambition is to convert 110 cruise boats and 155 small passengers boats. Note that docks could also be equipped with solar PV. This should be done as part of the general effort to promote solar energy in the City of Luxor along the lines of the development of solar power plants around the city. Administrative and coordination process • Governorate of Luxor – City of Luxor (Municipality) and Governor’s to approve the plan and its targets, • City Council represented by the Governor approval, • Cruise boats and small passengers’ boats owners and management in Luxor – approvals, • Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources (MoPMRs) – study and approve the quantity of the NCN/NG needed for these boasts to switch to green, including: - Egypt Gas Holding Company (EGAS) – study and approvals, - Ganoub el-Wady Holding Company – study and approval, - Egypt GAS Company EGC– Governorate of Luxor (approval for CNG supply), • Ministry of Transport /River Transportation Authority (RTA) – inspections and approval for safety, • Ministry of Interior (MoInt) / Civil Defence Department for checking safety issues with new installation, • Ministry of Electricity and Renewable Energy (MoERE) / NREA to approve the installation of SWH and PV new installation on Boats and docks, • Tourism (MoTrm) – renew license as part of the 110 cruise boats license, • Ministry of Environment (MoEnv) – Assess strategic environmental and social Impacts (SESIs) and benefits, and • Ministry of Investment and International Cooperation (MoIIC) – international investment approvals. Government and Administrative Procedures and Approvals • Initial approval of the Governorate (Municipality), • Final approval City Council represented by HE the Governor, 138

• Environmental permit: EEAA approval of the SESIs, • Operation Permit: SWH and PV installations, • Safety and Operation permit: River Maritime Inspection Authority – MoTr, • Safety Permit: Civil Defence Department – MoInt, and • Supply Approval: GeWCo and EGC - MoPMRs to supply CNG. European Union (EU) Commission Directives which apply to projects financed by IFCs for Action #2 Committed to the adoption of EU environmental principles, practices and substantive standards are essential, including the following list that provides a brief description for the key pertinent EU Directives: - Directive 2001/42/EC (SEA Directive) on the integration of environmental considerations into the preparation and adoption of plans and programmes with a view to promoting sustainable development, and - Directive 2011/92/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 13 December 2011 on the assessment of the effects of certain public and private projects on the environment, and its amendment (Directive 2014/52/EU). Biodiversity and Natural Resources - Convention on Wetlands of International Importance especially as Water Fowl Habitat (RAMSA), and - Relative to the Preservation of Fauna and Flora in their Natural State. Atmosphere and Air Pollution - COP 21 Paris climate change agreement, - United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, - Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer, and - Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer. Health and Worker Safety: Convention Concerning Protection of Workers against Occupational Hazards in Working Environment due to Air Pollution. 3. Technical description Link to Governorate development plan Tourism is a central point of concern for the Governorate of Luxor and the City of Luxor. With 210,000 tourists visiting Luxor (2015 reference) and most of them embarking on a cruise on the Nile Rover to reach Aswan and heritage sites or doing a smaller tour on a dhow, reducing fossil fuel consumption from these boats is an essential path toward sustainable energy. This priority action #2 on greening boats is consistent with eth City of Luxor ambition to position itself as a Green tourism and cultural destination. It also supports the Governorate strategy attaining the set policies in the National Climate Change Communication Report (NCCCR), mainly the policies targeting development that is more sustainable based on four pillars: • More efficient use of energy, especially by end users. • Increased use of renewable energy as an alternative to non-renewable sources. • Use of advanced locally appropriate and more efficient fossil fuel technologies that are less-emitting. 139
