6. Assumptions and risks

6. Assumptions and risks - The key challenge will be to organise a proper maintenance system in order to ensure adequate electricity production, yields securing an attractive enough Return on Investment (R.O.I), - As renewable electricity production is growing in Egypt, the grid should be maintained and upgraded to support integration of local production in varying intensity and quantity. This might be a challenge in the southern part of the Governorate of Red Sea. Grid upgrade and proper network management will become extremely important, - The relatively low purchase price (FiT) set by EETC. - Beyond promoting new sustainable services and/or new green infrastructures, reducing energy demands from non-clean energy sources is dependent on public mobilization. 7. Key success factors • The development of renewable energy (RE) is an expansion of the existing 13.25 MW solar power capacities, meaning the Governorate already has robust experience in solar energy production. • Cost of new Electricity Tariff and energy means that any saving will be a significant value and an incentive, • The action plan is divided in 2 phases to make the investment visible, • Municipality determination to act in a comprehensive way on the issue of Sustainable energy mainly RE, • Determination of the Governor of the Red Sea, to seriously act on the energy issue, is obviously an important element to the success of this action, • The Governor’s vision and backing of expanding the current solar PV power plants, reduce energy consumption and mitigate GHG emission is of a vital success factor, • Availability of Funds to prepare and to execute the planned action, and • Raised capacity of Governorate staff for implementation. 8. Cost estimates Initial and start-up expenses: technical investigation 30,000 € Approximate operational Costs (Setting up a Solar PV maintenance unit) 80,000€/y in routine Funding through a loan at 3% annual rate over 15 years) 30,000,000 € investment 28,435,500 for solar PV + additional equipment and administration set up. Profitability calculated based on feed-in-tariffs at 40 € per MWh. 168
