- Reduce energy

- 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. The City of Luxor - Governorate of Luxor developed and announced a Strategic Plan 2017, which promotes many projects in the areas of infrastructure. The strategy is centred on the objective of promoting Luxor as a green city. The vulnerability analysis of the City of Luxor indicates among 10 receptors including tourists, that Tourism is ranked the highest risk (level 1) in terms of probability and impact. Hence, it is essential to improve the energy profile of the tourism sector in order to support the ambition of profiling Luxor as sustainable tourism destination. The Sustainable and Green Tourism Plan (SGTP) will work to greening hotels and resorts, inviting them to operate on clean energy incorporating solar PV panels and SWH systems instead of using fossil fuels. The City of Luxor wants to expand the natural gas network to reach more hotels and resorts. Natural gas should be seen as a complement to renewable energy. The Governorate of Luxor also intends to support the Sustainable and Green Tourism Plan by raising awareness of all hotel owners, management, including staff and users on the impact of climate change, as well as the importance of measures to green hotels and resorts, supporting the conversion of the city to be a world-class tourists’ destination.
