3. City of Hurghada (Governorate of the Red Sea) – Priority Action # 3 for SECAP 1. General presentation GREENING HOTELS AND RESORTS – TOURISM AND ENERGY # 3 Summary of the Action Current Status – Tourism - Hotels and Resorts 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%). Tourism in the City of Hurghada consumes 653,939 MWh/year of electricity, 18,000,000 m 3 /year of Natural gas, 4,986,505,000 m3/year of water, and lastly 2,238,145,000 m 3 /year of sewage water. In addition, hotels and resorts consume 36,500 tons of diesel and gasoline yearly for water heating. As for waste, hotels produce an average of 150 tons of solid waste daily, which is around 54,750 tons yearly. Waste transportation is also an issue, 262,667 litres of diesel and 14,143 litres of gasoline are consumed yearly in transporting waste from hotels. There are more than 150 hotels and resorts with many small tourist boats and yachts on their seashore. Based on a rough calculation, these hotels and resorts have 44,400 rooms at average occupancy rate of 62% lodging about 4 million (3,953,665) tourists every year. In addition, visitors from various parts of Egypt during the festive seasons and holidays as well as summer vacation and global events such as al Gouna Film Festival 2017. In addition, there are 162 tourist companies, and 28 safari offices operating desert tours as well as 96 aqua centers. The tourists and visitors are using 189 diving centres operating 451 boats for diving, 2,226 yachts, and 590 hotel buses. Most of these boats and yachts that are owned by hotels, diving centres and private sectors mainly individuals. Apart from the control systems and programmes that exist in hotel and resort facilities such as power saver system installed in all resorts and hotels’ rooms, there are few Solar Water Heating (SWH) systems integrated on these hotels and resorts roofs. Also, little measures of green building such as occupancy and motion sensors, smart lighting, and VRV systems are not used in order to reduce energy consumption and lower GHG emissions from tourists and visitors in Hurghada. Location: City of Hurghada, Governorate of the Red Sea Start date: December 2017 Project lifetime: 6 years End: December 2023 Estimated cost € 100 K€ awareness and training 180 K€ management unit for the revolving fund 1,500 K€ revolving fund for SWH system deployment and hotel retrofitting. The initial approach would be to promote a negotiation process with all hotel owners and leisure activities managers in coordination with the Governorate of the Red Sea to adopt a common charter for global improvement of the tourism sector in Hurghada aiming to reduce energy consumption, improve energy efficiency in hotel and resorts and more generally preserve the environment. The plan will be then to convert (retrofit) hotels and resorts to increase energy efficiency (improving natural venting and using LED lamps would reduce energy 129
