The pilot considering

The pilot considering 1,000 housing units is meant to test what will be the best combination of actions (ventilation, AC, natural light) to get the best energy efficiency gains. Monitoring energy consumption will allow designing plan to expand the program at a larger scale with the ambition of covering 20% of the residential sector in the next 5 years (11,000 housing units at least meaning another 10,000 after the pilot phase). This implementing plan, will require setting up a revolving fund of 6,000,000 € that could be replenished by housing occupants’ contribution from the saving they will gain from the retrofitting activities. The management of this revolving fund should be organised by the City of Hurghada. Deliverables should be as follows: • Integrated sustainable energy in residential buildings to contribute to the greening of the city of Hurghada, • Global awareness campaign to help households reducing their daily energy consumption, • Pilot project focusing on 1000 housing units addressing lighting by switching to LED, water heating by installing solar water heater and other initiatives to further reduce energy consumption. • Expansion plan targeting at least 10,000 housing units by 2030, setting up a revolving fund to support investment in energy efficiency activities (switching to LED, SWH development, other retrofitting actions). 4. Organization and procedures Formal approval The development would require the following entities for issuing permits, approvals and follow up process: - Governor’s approval - City of Hurghada (Municipality and - Governorate of the Red Sea and City Council represented by the Governor - MoERE – NREA for SWH installation on buildings, - Operation permit by MoHUUD – for buildings modification permit, - Ministry of Investment and International Cooperation (MoIIC) to coordinate loans and funding from IFCs. Staff training Governorate (Municipality) team which will be assigned to the EAU as part of the SSEU need to receive a proper training on several subjects: • Technical questions related EE, PV and SWH development as well as CCA, • Pedagogy and communication to run efficient awareness programmes, • Strategic Management of sustainable energy issues, • Organisational solutions and technical questions related converting residential buildings to operate by Solar water heating, and • Project management. Staff allocated to prepare, implement, monitor action - City of Hurghada - Governorate of the Red Sea, - MoERE and NREA, and - MoHUUD. Role of Partners Stakeholders: - Training is also needed to transfer the message of clean and green residential plan 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: MoERE, NREA and EEAA, - All should be invited to specific to facilitate the action project to follow up the implementation upon funding. A Strategic Sustainable Energy Unit (SSEU) to be developed and established to oversee the training of staff and all concerned issue 156

and ensure the implementation of the plan actions of SECAP. 5. Summary of related Awareness Raising (AR) of action ≠5 (Green Residential buildings) - A communication plan needs to be developed to highlight the benefits of a new strategic and comprehensive sustainable energy (energy efficiency) mainly the GRP to brand the City of Hurghada as a clean and green city including the use of SWHs to heat water and EE measures, - An adequate awareness raising actions will also be necessary to help Governorate promote the value of Green residential plan (GRP) through greening these buildings as well as the benefit household 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 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 household owners 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. Successful projects in national and foreign municipalities, notably in municipalities that are members of the Covenant of Mayors (CoM). 6. Assumptions and risks - Considering the time to change the mind set of building users which may take time, it will take a smart concept to engage the public in collective actions that will generate individual benefits (saving money from their own budget through reduced energy and water consumption) as well as global impact (reducing dependency on imported oil and mitigating climate change, etc.), - The main constraints of such a plan will be the mobilization of appropriate resources to fund renovation programmes, as in many cases house owners will not have the fund to invest at the appropriate level. This is why such a programme requires a partnership between the Governorate (Municipality) offering the guarantee that retrofitting will result in actual energy bill reduction, and the bank providing the funds or with MoERE and NREA to promote GRP. - The absence of a maintenance plan could reduce the efficiency of the installed SWH systems, thus it is important to ensure good performance of SWH. 7. Key success factors • The Governor’s vision and backing of promoting Sustainable Energy (RE and EE) in the city Hurghada and the Governorate of the Red Sea is of a vital success factor, • The approach and development of GRP is part of the Governorates’ vision and strategy, hence would assist in reducing the annual use of fossil energy, • Cost of new energy tariff means that any saving will be of significant value, • The action plan is divided in two phases to make the investment visible and implementation easier, • Any reduction in the usage of fossil fuels will be great success due to its huge cost annually, and 157
