consumption by 75%) and

consumption by 75%) and use clean energy to mitigate GHG emission. One option is to substitute fossil fuel with natural gas in combination with solar water heating systems (including to heat swimming pools). The City of Hurghada will develop a comprehensive tourism strategic plan: “Sustainable and Green Tourism Plan” (SGTP) supporting the Governorate meeting the SDS 2030 and helping to achieve SDG 7: Ensure Access to Affordable Reliable, Sustainable and Modern Energy for All, particularly in Egypt SDS 2030 Strategic objectives under energy and environment sectors. General Objectives of the project The aim of this planned action is to switch hotels and resorts that currently using fossil fuel to operate under a more energy efficient model and rely on less emitting energy sources (natural gas and solar). The plan aims to address at least 100 of the 150 hotels and resorts in the city in order to lower energy consumption, GHG emissions, reduce air pollution near the city, and resorts as well as to enhance quality of life. Status of the Action: • New • Planned • Following previous action. The Sustainable and Green Tourism Plan (SGTP) will contribute to: - Ensuring energy security, - Increasing the contribution of energy sector to the GDP, - Maximising utilisation of domestic energy resource, - Enhancing rational and sustainable management of the sector, - Reducing the intensity of energy consumption, - Limit the environmental impact of the sector's emissions, and - Improve the quality of the urban environment.

Governorate and Municipal vision and strategy The Governorate of the Red Sea has developed a strategy to make the City of Hurghada a Green city. The strategy is centred and developed so that the city should be a carbon neutral city. This would be through clean and green tourism activities based on clean energy production and green system in the tourism sector. The Governorate is also intending to support the plan to green in hotels and resorts and upgrade the current solar thermal used in hotel and integrate SWH systems to heat water instead of using non-clean energy to reduce the use of fossil fuel in the City of Hurghada in particular and Governorate in general. In de-carbonisation efforts based on clean energy, the City of Hurghada – Governorate of Red Sea plans to expand 131
