6. Governorate of the Red Sea, Hurghada – Priority Action # 6 for SECAP 1. General presentation Title: ENERGY SUPPLY AND RENEWABLE ENERGY DEVELOPMENT # 6 Summary of the Action Current Status: Renewable Energy Development – Governorate of the Red Sea Renewable energies (RE) in the Governorate of the Red Sea are key to addressing all sectors that consume fossil fuels and emit GHG. Solar radiation is abundant in the Governorate, especially in the southern part. It is characterised as one of the highest in the country and the world (more than 2800 kWh/m 2 /year of direct solar radiation with about 12 hours of sunshine per day. The coastal area of the Governorate of the Red Sea is also known for its high wind speed (more than 10 m/sec) offering high potential for generating electricity from wind. Currently the New and Renewable Energy Authority (NREA) registers about 500 MW of wind power capacity in operation and 1340 MW under development. Many projects in the solar electricity production are already running under MoERE - NREA and international agencies in Egypt (JICA, AFD, kfW & WB) partnerships in the Red Sea. These projects represent 1210 MW capacity (730 MW installed & 480 MW under installation): Location: Governorate of the Red Sea (Al-Shalateen, Marsa Alam, Halayeb, Abu Ramad and Arab Saleh) Start date: Dec. 2017 Project lifetime: 2 years End: December 2019 Estimated cost € 30K€ technical expertise 30M€ initial investment to install solar PV capacities reaching 22 MWp No Capacity Location Duration Financed by 1 250 MW Gulf of Suez 2017-2021 KFW 2 20 MW Gulf of Suez 2016-2019 JICA 3 240 MW Gabal El Zayt 2012 2017 KFW 4 220 MW Gulf El Zayt 2010-2017 JICA 5 120 MW Zafarana 2015 (in operation) JICA 6 200 MW West, Gulf of Suez 2015 (in operation) AFD 7 160 MW Zafarana 2004-2008 KFW Renewable Energy at the Governorate of the Red Sea – South Region The Governorate of the Red Sea installed 13.25 MWp solar energy production capacities.

Renewable energy at the city of Hurghada The City of Hurghada has: • 4.8 MWp wind farm between Hurghada and Al-Gouna resort. • A small solar power plant on the main Governorate’s building with 100 PV panels with a capacity of 25 kWp. • A 3-Km long light posts using solar energy with an installed capacity of 27 kWp. The vision of the Governorate of the Red Sea is to expand its renewable energy production tapping on the solar and wind potential to reduce its dependency on conventional energy sources and cut CO2 emissions. Taking into account the fact that cost of PV installations is going down year by year and considering the increasing cost of electricity in Egypt, return on investment is now getting attractive (5 to 6 years), a special effort should be made to speed up development of solar energy. The Governorate of the Red Sea efforts in Sustainable energy is willing to contribute to reaching the National Sustainable Energy Policy Roadmap and Targets: - 22% of total electricity consumption sourced from renewables by 2022, - 20% of total new electricity generation from renewables by 2020 (63% wind, 2% solar, 10% CSP, and 25% Hydro), and - 80% of electricity demand from local generation by 2020. Developing solar PV in five towns south of the Governorate can assist in boosting the local economy. Considering the huge potential of development of this technology and taking into account that installation and maintenance must rely on local companies, yet can sustain local employment. Hence, the Governorate of the Red Sea is planning to move forward to holistically improve sustainable energy production from clean sources. Thus, to develop solar energy plants in the southern region of the Governorate of the Red Sea (Al-Shalateen, Halayeb and Abou Ramad) in addition to use the none-utilised generated power to feed the water desalination plant. This action is to upgrade installed solar PV capacity from 13 MW to 35.25 MW: • Increase Marsa Alam power plant capacity from 5 MW to 10 MW (no grid there), • Increase power capacity of Al-Shalateen from 5 MW to 10 MW, and utilised the power for support the water desalination plant in the town, • Increase Halayeb power plant capacity from 1 MW to 5 MW, • Increase Abou Ramad solar power plant from 2 MW to 10 MW, • Provide a small solar power plant of 250 kWp generating capacity for the remote nomadic residential settlements in Arab Saleh area. General Objectives of the project The “Energy Supply and Renewable Energy Development Plan” will be the Governorate of the Red Sea’s strategic roadmap to improve energy supply, while reducing dependency on fossil fuel and cut GHG emissions: • Add 22.25 MW of renewable energy production in the southern region of the Governorate, upgrading current installation or building new ones. Status of the Action: • New • Planned • Following previous action. • Reduce loads on the national grid, • Contribute to build a sustainable energy strategy for the entire Governorate, 161
