City of Luxor – Governorate of Luxor Priority Action # 5 for SECAP 1. General presentation 5. Green Governorate Buildings Plan # 5 Summary of the Action Current Status – Governorate Buildings in the City of Luxor The Governorate owns many buildings in different locations representing a total of 175,800 square meters that could be detailed as follows: Location: City of Luxor, Governorate of Luxor Start date: December 2017 • 142,500 square meters of offices (including, the city hall, administrative sites, water and sanitation offices, electricity management building, library, cultural centre, etc.), • 8,500 square meters of commercial facilities, warehouse and technical equipment (open), and • 24,800 square meters of schools and higher institutions. These buildings’ areas represent roughly 132,000 square meters of roofs to be equipped with solar PV to generate electricity. The governorate took early steps in this direction by installing solar PV panels on 4 buildings: Governorate’s main building; Public library; Governorate’s conference hall; and College of Fine Arts. The Governorate buildings in the City of Luxor consume 4,718 MWh/year of electricity (2015 reference). This electricity consumption is used for lighting, cooling, office equipment (computer, copiers, etc.), elevator, etc. The annual electricity bill for municipality buildings alone represents 3,599,961 EGP (173 K €). On average, electricity consumption in buildings comes from lighting (18%), cooling and heating (65%), office equipment (computer, copiers, etc.) and elevators (10%), and water pumps and others (7%). Project lifetime: 5 years End: December 2022 Estimated cost € Technical support & training 60,000 € Investment 10,842,000 € LED lamps & sensors 40,000 € Efficient AC devices 150,000 € Solar PV 10,000,000 € SWH 292,000 € Lighting – buildings: Some efforts were made to switch to efficient bulbs such as LED lamps, but there is still neither tight control of lighting in buildings, nor efficient management using motion or occupancy sensors. There is a habit to switching light on, whatever will be the availability of natural lights, even if this natural light is sufficient most of the time. No control smart devices such as motion and occupancy sensors are installed. Electric equipment – buildings: So far, electric equipment (computers, copiers, printers, and fax machines, etc.) are not green label products. There 174

is a need to make use of green labelled equipment to lower energy consumption and switch to energy efficient devices. Cooling and heating – buildings: Most of the buildings are equipped with AC split systems that are not labelled green. Only few offices are under a centralised temperature control system. Important margin for improvement to ensure proper management of heating and cooling is needed. Temperature inside building is often too high in cold season and too low in hot season. Renewable energy – building: Some of the potential sites have been identified, and there are already pilot projects to test the benefit of solar PV with an installed capacity of 300 kW over four governorate buildings. The Governorate of Luxor already developed a strategic plan to develop renewable energy on its buildings, but this plan still needs to be unrolled. Action Summary The City of Luxor - Governorate of Luxor has the desire to move forward to holistically solve these challenges by promoting sustainable energy in Governorate (municipal) buildings in the city of Luxor through the development of a comprehensive plan to reduce energy consumption and consequently GHG emissions. Also, the Governorate plan is to enhance energy efficiency in these municipal buildings by promoting renewable energy and incorporate SWH systems utilising solar energy and apply green measures such as LED lamps and sensors – “Green Municipal Buildings Plan – GMBP.’’ The Priority Action #5 – Green Governorate Buildings Plan (GGBP) is set to integrate new sustainability measures and technologies to green Governorate buildings in the City of Luxor and raise awareness on the need to save energy and improve energy efficiency in all Governorate buildings. General Objectives of the project The project is part of the Governorate of Luxor’s strategic roadmap to improve its energy profile, reducing dependency on fossil fuel and cutting GHG emission. It focuses on public buildings with the following objectives: • Raise awareness among staff to engage Develop renewable energy production to reduce dependency on fossil fuel, improve energy supply, • Reduce loads on the national grid and support the Governorate reach targets, Status of the Action: • New • Planned • Following previous action. 175
