will save 8,157 MWh/year

will save 8,157 MWh/year of electricity (8 GWh/year) from the total use 27 GWh/year (2015 reference) and will reduce GHG emissions by 2.8 tCO 2eq/y. Component 5: Institutions’ capacity building is essential to prepare and oversee the implementation of hotels/resorts conversion plan to NG and SWH. Component 6: Awareness raising is vital to change the current mode of using non-clean fuel in hotels and resorts to assist in the implementation of the plan and in transforming the city to be a green city, hotels/resorts to run by natural gas not fossil fuel and heating water from solar. 4.

A Strategic Sustainable Energy Unit (SSEU) to be developed and established to oversee the training of staff and all concerned issue and ensure the implementation of the plan actions of SECAP. d. Role of Partners Stakeholders: - All stakeholders should be invited to specific workshop to design the strategic road map to start transferring hotels and resorts from fossil fuels mainly diesel to natural gas and Electricity to Solar thermal.
