(RoI) of 3 years. This

(RoI) of 3 years. This plan will also avoid 280 tCO2eq of GHG emission per year. Expending to school - 10 classes with an average of 30 pupils per class and 25 staff – the plan would require 1 units per school (to warm 650 litres per day) occupying an area of 7 square meters at a cost of 582 € rounded at 600 € with additional equipment. Such a system would produce 6 MWh/y with a value of 212 €/y saving 3 tCO2eq/y (offering a 3 year RoI). For 70 educational building (65 schools and 5 college), we would need 42,000 € investment for a global production equivalent to 420 MWh/y hence avoiding a cost of 14,800 €/y and saving 210 tCO2eq/y. This plan could be unrolled in three proposed phases: - Phase 1 - 2018-2019 - 10 Governorate (Municipal) buildings at a cost of 50,000 €, - Phase 2 - 2019-2020 - 30 School buildings at a cost of 21,000 €, and - Phase 3 - 2020-2021 - 30 School buildings and a college, at a cost of 21,000 €. The total cost of SWH will amount 92,000 €, producing 920 MWh/y and avoiding 490 tCO2eq. Solar PV power generation: Having 80,000 square meters of offices in public equipment roofs (440.000 square meter of buildings of 4 to 5 store buildings), considering that SWH systems will consume 600 Sq.m., and knowing that 1 kW Solar PV units requires about 7 square meters, the total capacity for solar PV “on roofs” could reach 10,000 units (i.e. a potential of 10 MWp). A cautious plan would be to start with a first round of 7.5 MWp (75% of the full potential). 7.5 MW (7,500 units of 1 kWp) would require an investment of close to 10 million €. Setting up a revolving fund of 10 m€ will allow producing 14,250 MWh/y generating revenues of 712,500 € offering a 14 year return on investment (based on actual feed in tariffs for small installation). The fund could be replenished gradually as producing institutions will sell electricity at feed in tariffs to EETC. After 15 years another 7.5 MW could then be installed in and around Hurghada on any kind of buildings. This set up will result in a global production of 14,250 MWh/y from Solar PV avoiding 7,808 t CO2eq/y. The City of Hurghada would set up a dedicated unit in charge of managing the revolving fund with a 50K€/y budget. 3. Organization and procedures Formal approval The development would require the following entities for issuing permits, approvals and follow up process: - Ministry of Investment and International Cooperation (MoIIC) to coordinate loans and funding from IFCs, - Ministry of Local Development (MoLD), - MoERE – NREA for SWH installation on buildings roofs, - The EIA Department of the Environmental Affairs Agency (EEAA) –Ministry of Environment (MoEnv) to conduct an Environmental and Social Impact Assessments (ESIAs) study on the impacts of converting Governorate buildings with renewable energy such as solar PV and SWH systems, - Operation permit by MoHUUD – for buildings modification permit – Governorate issue, - City Council represented by the Governor, Staff allocated to prepare, implement, monitor action - Governorate of the Red Sea and City of Hurghada, - City Council represented by the Governor, - MoERE and NREA, - Al-Qanal Distribution Company and EETC in case of on-grid connection, - MoHUUD and - MoEnv (EEAA). 144

- Municipality and Governorate – Governor’s approval. Staff training Governorate (Municipality) team, which will be assigned to the EAU, need to receive a proper training on several subjects, including: • Technical questions related PV development and energy issues related to CAA, • Pedagogy and communication to run efficient awareness programmes, • Strategic management of sustainable energy issues, • Organisational solutions and technical questions related refurbishment of buildings to operate by solar PV and SWH, and • Project management. Also, 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. Role of Partners Stakeholders: - All stakeholders should be invited to specific workshop to receive training in order to transfer the message of clean and green Governorate (municipal) buildings plan (GMBP) to all parties involved to coordinate with the Governorate, including MoRER, NREA and MoEnv, - The Governorate and city of Hurghada to coordinate the procedures approval with different related authorities in close contact with the Governorate, such as: MoERE and NREA, EEAA, MoHUUD to ensure constant operation and efficiency, - NREA to be involved to check on the installation procedures of the connections, implementation and testing, and monitor the operation and to facilitate the action project follow up the implementation upon funding. 4. Summary of related Awareness Raising (AR) actions ≠4 (Green Governorate Buildings) 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 solar PV cells and SWH systems on Governorate (municipal) buildings’ roofs. An adequate awareness raising actions will be necessary to assist the Governorate of the Red Sea promoting the value of Green Governorate (Municipal) Buildings Plan - GMBP through greening such buildings as well as the benefits of such move. Awareness should also focus on the fact that Green buildings development doesn’t mean that energy will become abundant. On the contrary, such awareness campaign should highlight that combining energy efficiency with the use of solar PV and SWH systems will make reduce GHG emissions and make air in the city less polluted. The Awareness Raising Programme (ARP), would include meetings, workshops, lectures and workshops for staff and managers that could encompass several actions: - The creation of a permanent municipal information point, - The organisation of an open house, - The publication of articles in local and regional newspapers, - The distribution of brochures and posters, - The distribution of an information letter that includes current events on sustainability and local success stories: • Information on national energy policies and local implications, • The prevailing energy conditions in the municipality, • The state of progress of the different actions implemented within the framework of the sustainable energy strategy and the SECAP, and successful projects in national and foreign municipalities, notably in municipalities that are members of the Covenant of Mayors (CoM). 145
