Section I: Governorate

Section I: Governorate climate and energy strategy 1. Introduction The Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plan (SECAP) is a strategic document as well as an operational tool. It defines a global framework, with quantifiable objectives to be reached by 2030, based on emissions reference inventory (BEI) and the detailed assessment of energy consumption. Before providing a detailed account of the concrete measures undertaken to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote the development of sustainable energy, it is essential to describe the overall Governorate strategy and its connection with the national energy transition and climate change mitigation policies. Being mostly dependant on imported energy, Egypt will benefit from converging efforts to reduce energy consumption in all sectors and develop energy production from all renewable sources available. 2. National strategy 2.1. Main ambitions and framing regulations At the national level, there are many initiatives, policies, guidelines, programs and projects that have been designed and implemented by the Egyptian government with the support of public institutions, international funders, nongovernmental organizations and the private sector. Egypt developed its sustainable energy policy road map with the aim to increase the operating and technical efficiency of distribution utilities, improve energy conservation and load management and diversify the sources of the regional electricity supply. The goals of this roadmap are threefold: 1. 22% of total electricity consumption sourced from renewables by 2022. 2. 20% of total new electricity generation from renewables by 2020. Of this 20%, 63% is from wind, 2% Solar, 10% CSP, and 25% Hydro. 3. 80% of electricity demand from local generation (of all fuels) by 2020. It was 88.4% in 2015. The Egyptian Government has set plans to increase the share of Renewable Energies (RE) in its electricity supply from the current 9% to 20% by 2020. Many laws, by-laws, regulations and decrees have been developed and endorsed. Given that RE only made up 2% of the total energy mix in 2012, and that Energy Efficiency (EE) measures were not yet deployed at a large scale, the targets are ambitious, indicating a strong political will to reduce the energy consumption. In accordance with this ambition, the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Comprehensive Law (EG-REEEL) No. 203 of year 2014 has been developed to promote RE self-consumption, which has a comprehensive basis for supporting schemes and incentives and promotes the use of renewable energy. The EG-REEEL is a unique law made specifically for the MENA region, since it is a dedicated and comprehensive law with incentives for the private sector to invest in RE. This law proved that REEE has been effective in increasing renewable power capacity and has put the country on track to meet its RE target of 20% by 2020. The New and Renewable Energy Agency (NREA) has been actively promoting largescale wind and solar energy projects for a long period, but not small-scale RE projects until recently 1 . In 2017, an initiative for solar energy projects to include small scale was launched by the NREA. In the last two years, several Net-metering and Feed-in-tariff incentives were announced and have led to the construction of roughly 6,000 rooftop PV systems in remote areas, which also contribute to environmental protection and achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The EG-REEEL allowed the private sector to have 720 MW of RE 1 Elkhayt, M. 2016.

capacities under construction, resulting from the establishment of merchants’ IPP scheme. The REEEL addresses three main issues: 1. Establishment of new RE installations and grid connections, including ‘net metering’, which was endorsed in September 2014 by the Feed-in-Tariff Law. 2. Egypt’s Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Fund (EG-REEEF) has been established in 2012, but not funded. 3. Tax and Customs regulations have been under review since the 3 rd Quarter of 2016. Egypt has developed an Energy Efficiency Plan in the Electricity Sector to save 5,566 GWH between 2012 and 2015, mainly by measures in the lighting sector, including: − − − The first phase: Change to high efficiency lighting in the household sector planning the distribution of 60 million bulbs to saved 3,320 GWH, The second phase: programme of energy efficiency standards and labelling for household appliances. This saved 1,663 GWH, and; Energy saving in street lighting of 1,200 GWH; supported by the Association of Energy Efficiency Engineers (AEEE). The Egyptian Government adopted a strategic EE roadmap. Additionally, the new energy prices policy takes into account the low income of a large proportion of the population as well as the competitiveness of industry, with the hopes of not jeopardising their supply. It is important to notice that Egypt acknowledges the key role that local authorities are playing and will continue to play in the necessary energy transition the country should go through. As a sign of this attention paid to local authorities, the Ministry of Electricity and Renewable Energy (MoERE), in collaboration with the Ministry of Local Development (MoLD), took the lead in promoting the development of a Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plan in the Governorate of Hurghada. The Egyptian Cabinet adopted an institutional strategy for energy efficiency, with the aim to establish bundles of decentralised Energy Efficiency Offices (EEOs) in energy-intensive sectors. These EEOs will be responsible for achieving sector-specific energy efficiency indicators. The EEO of the Ministerial Council for Energy Issues (MCEI) is responsible for drawing up energy efficiency governmental policies and for coordinating energy efficiency measures across sectors. Following the model of the Arabic energy efficiency guidelines, the MoERE approved and adopted a National Action Plan that provides an increase of approximately 10% in energy efficiency in the electricity sector. Also, Egypt has developed a strategy for renewable energy covering 7 objectives. These strategic objectives will lead to the increase of the shares of solar energy, wind energy and hydroelectricity to 26,000 MW. The Egyptian Government has also developed a plan for improving Energy Efficiency in the electricity sector to save electricity by 5,566 GWh from the total generated power in 2015. In addition, Egypt has set a target for wind energy. The National Renewable Energy Action Plan (NREAP) was developed and finalised in March 2015. Furthermore, Egypt is planning to produce 20% of its total energy generation out of renewable energy sources (9,500 MW), including: − 12% will be produced by wind energy (7200 MW), − − 2.2% solar energy, (2300 MW), and; 5.8% hydroelectricity. The Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources (MoPMRs) and MoERE are working on a National Energy Database with the support of the EU funded REEEP project 2 . The MoPMRs developed an indicators’ database in each utility, but not yet on the national level, GHG emission per factory is part of the database. Egypt’s National Energy Efficiency Action Plan (NEEAP): This programme, specifically targets energy efficiency in the Electricity Sector. The NEEAP has been considered, so far, as the main umbrella regarding Energy Efficiency (EE) at the national level, but more plans and support are needed. The NEEAP follows the energy saving targets that were set in the Energy Strategy 2007-2030, to reduce electricity consumption. In early 2014, the Egyptian Supreme Energy Council 2 For information: - 11
