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 boats and speed boats from Fossil fuels to Natural gas. This could include boats; owners and hotel managers. - Training is also needed to transfer the message of clean and green tourism to all parties involved, - The Governorate and City of Hurghada to coordinate the procedures approval with different related authorities in close contact with the Governorate such as: Ministry of Petroleum, EEAA, MoTr, including MIA and City Gas Company to ensure constant supply of natural gas to dock and hotels and marina and diving centres - All should be invited to specific to facilitate the action project to follow up the implementation upon funding, and - The MIA of MoTr and EGAS through City Gas Company to be involved to check on the installation procedures, implementation and test the safety of converted boats and monitor the operation and re-license. 5. Summary of related Awareness Raising (AR) actions for action #2 (Green Tourist Boats) A communication plan needs to be developed to highlight the benefits of a new strategic and comprehensive sustainable energy (energy efficiency) plan to brand the City of Hurghada as a clean and green city including the use of natural gas instead diesel in running tourists and diving boats in the Red Sea. Also, adequate awareness raising actions will be necessary to help Governorate promote the value of Green Tourism Activities through greening tourists’ small boats, yachts and diving boats as well as the benefit both for individual and hotels (boat owners and for the entire city of such a move. Awareness should also focus on the fact that Green tourism development does not mean that energy will become abundant. On the contrary such awareness campaign should highlight that combining energy efficiency with the use of NG instead of non-clean energy will make tourist and diving boats reduce GHG emissions and make air and water less polluted. 126

6. Assumptions and risks - The key challenge will be to change the mid set of some owners of boats and diving boats as well as yachts - Organise a proper maintenance system in order to ensure adequate functioning of engines and on-board electricity production, to secure an adequate return on investment (R.o.I.), - The medium to low price of diesel set by Egyptian General Petroleum Authority - EGPA (MoPMRs) is a challenge, but this will change in 2018 with new planned energy tariffs. 7. Key success factors • The development of Green tourist boats, diving boats and yachts, is an essential part of the Governorate of Red Sea vision and strategy and will get the adequate political support. • Cost of new energy tariff means that any saving will be a significant value and an incentive. • The action plan is divided into two stages to make the benefit of investments more visible. 8. Cost estimates Awareness campaign and preliminary study already mentioned in priority action #3 (Hotels and resorts) Revolving fund to support boats’ engines conversion to natural gas Approximate annual cost saving: 50% reduction in cost per year / boat (average) Return on Investment per boat 5,000,000 € revolving fund to support investment of 5,085 € in average / boat 8,109 € (per boat) Less than a year 9.
