improvement, - Assess

improvement, - Assess the number of solar PV and SWH that could be installed taking into account the needs and roof capacities or each building, and - Mobilize local companies that can offer the appropriate services to install these renewable energy production capacities. • Unroll the plan to promote energy efficiency and install PV and SWH systems on residential buildings according to priorities defined from the initial assessment; • Set a plan to raise awareness as part of The Environmental Awareness Unit (EAU) to inform and train all the stakeholders, including Governorate staff, users and suppliers; The Environmental Awareness Unit (EAU), as part of the CES-MED Strategic Sustainable Energy Unit (SSEU) at the Governorate, 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, in doing so contribute to the success of the SECAP and assist in achieving the City of Luxor - Governorate of Luxor vision and strategy. Administrative and coordination process • Governorate of Luxor – City of Luxor to review the action plan and its components: GRP and EAU, • Governor’s to approve the plan and its targets, • City Council represented by the Governor approval, • Ministry of Housing, Utilities and Urban Development MoHUUD – approvals, - Department of Housing at the Governorate for the refurbishment • Ministry of Electricity and Renewable Energy (MoERE), - NREA to approve the plan of solar PV and SWH systems • Ministry of Environment (MoEnv) – Assess the strategic environmental and social impacts (SESIs) and benefits, • Ministry of Investment and International Cooperation (MoIIC) – international investment approvals. Government Procedures and Approvals • Initial approval of the Governorate (Municipality), • City of Luxor to coordinate all approvals with the listed entities to execute the GRP: • Refurbishment permit: MoHUUD and Governorate, • Operation permit: NREA for PV and SWH connection, • EETC and AEDC permit: in the case of on-grid connection, and • Height permit: MOCA and EAA for height regulation. European Union (EU) Commission Directives which apply to projects financed by IFCs for Action ≠3 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: 152

- 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). 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, - Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer, - London Amendment to Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer, and - (Copenhagen) Amendment to the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete Ozone Layer. 3. 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, the GHG emissions from Residential sector are vital for the Governorate of Luxor strategy on climate change adaptation - CCA. Residential sector is one the five main sectors that will be affected by climate change risks. Thus, it is vital to develop a comprehensive plan to green the residential buildings to attain the vision of the City of Luxor and Governorate Luxor in making the City of Luxor a green city and improving quality of life. The GRP will also increase the use of RE to improve the Governorate’s sustainable energy prospectus, yet contribute to achieving Egypt’s Vision and National Sustainable Development Strategy (SDS) 2030. Thus, Governorate of Luxor will contribute to Egypt’s SDS key performance indicators – KPIs that are relevant to SECAP, mainly in Energy, Urban Development, Environment, and Domestic energy policy, e.g., energy: - Secure energy resources, - Increase reliance on local resources, - Reduce the intensity of energy consumption, and - Raise the actual economic contribution of energy sector in the national income. The Priority Action #3 – Sustainable Approach to Green Residential Buildings would also support the Governorate strategy in attaining the set policies in the Nation Climate Change Communication, mainly the policies targeting development of the three underlined related pillars: - More efficient use of energy, especially by end users, - Increase the use of renewable energy as an alternative to non-renewable sources, and - Energy efficiency is a cornerstone to be targeted by policy makers to decouple demand on energy and economic growth.
