2. City of Hurghada (Governorate of the Red Sea) – Priority Action #2 for SECAP 1. General presentation Title: SUSTAINABLE AND GREEN BOATS – TOURISM AND WATER TRANSPORT # 2 Summary of the Action Current Status – Tourism and Water Transport in the City of Hurghada (Governorate of the Red Sea) The tourism sector in the City of Hurghada – Governorate of the Red Sea, is one of the foremost sectors that urgently need to be addressed as it holds the first highest sector, after transport, in energy consumption 1,626 GWh/year (43%) and first in GHG emissions with 606 k teCO2/year (44%). There are 451 diving boats and 2226 leisure yachts. Visitors are using 189 diving centres, 162 tourist companies as well as 96 aqua centres. The initial approach would be to raise awareness among diving centres and diving boats or yacht operators to promote responsible tourism practices: optimisation of boats occupancy, energy conservation, water and waste management, careful and responsible approach of coral reef and marine environment. The plan will be then to convert boats’ engines to run on natural gas instead of fuel and diesel and to cover on board energy needs from solar PV on board. These activities will be part of the comprehensive tourism strategic plan: “Sustainable and Green Tourism Plan” (SGTP) developed by the City of Hurghada to support the Governorate meeting the SDS 2030 and helping to achieve SDG 7: Ensure Access to Affordable Reliable, Sustainable and Modern Energy for All, particularly Egypt SDS 2030 Strategic objectives (energy and environment sectors). General Objectives of the project The aim is to switch tourist’s boats that currently use fossil fuel to operate with natural gas and solar energy (for on board needs).
