2 The energy sector is playing a vital role in Egypt's economy. However, the Egyptian government currently faces a real challenge to make a strategic choice between satisfying the ever increasing national primary energy demand (depending by more than 94% on oil and gas) that is being offered to end-users with subsidized prices, and maintaining a certain level of hard currency revenues from oil and gas exports at world prices, even with a growing risk of accelerated depletion rates of national proven reserves. For the electricity sector, the load and energy demand grows by more than 10 % per year where the load is expected to reach 39703MW and the energy GWh by year 2020.

3 Meeting the ever increasing demand on electricity with a high degree of reliability and sustainability has been one of the main issues addressed by the strategy developed and implemented by the Ministry of Electricity and Energy. The Egyptian Electricity sector has adopted strong measures in order to improve energy efficiency at both the supply and demand sides, this resulted in reducing the overall average specific fuel consumption from 340 gm to gm of oil equivalent per kWh, reducing losses from 18 % to14% in 2008/2009. Comparable efforts have been conducted on the demand side to effectively utilize the electrical energy.

4 The national strategy for Egypts power sector includes among others the following: Optimize use of available energy sources and minimize environment pollution Provide electricity with minimum price and best quality Restructure electricity sector to optimize investments and improve electrical services Utilize modern and sophisticated technical systems in electricity sector's operation and activities Develop the expertise and skills of engineers and technicians working in the electricity sector. Energy Efficiency Improvement

5 The Project with the overall objective to reduce the long- term growth of greenhouse gas emissions from electric power generation and from consumption of non-renewable fuel resources is mainly based upon higher efficiency of equipment in the sector and better know-how of the professional staff through capacity building and learning. The Projects aims were specifically to assist Egypt in loss reduction in the electricity transmission system and in load management, enhance the end-use efficiency by market incentives and provide further information and support for co-generated electricity. To continue the electricity sector efforts, EEIGGR Project, was started in 1999, fits very well into this strategy:

19 Cooperation with GEF Small Grants Program (SGP) to assist 9 NGOs in financing energy efficiency lighting programs. Promoting the use of efficient lighting equip. many demonstration application have been executed at different locations: Some street lighting, in Cairo and Alex; Headquarter offices, garage and some offices in EEHC (total of 620 lamps); Electricity compounds and power plants in Cairo.

20 These achievements encouraged other NGOs to submit proposal to get grants through the second stage of the project where 4 projects have been approved and other are presented. Within the cooperation with NGOs training of 60 electric technicians and lending them money for buying and mounting CFL and electronic ballasts to customers thus their increasing awareness Application of leasing program for CFL (revolving fund) in Cairo, Alexandria and Beheira DCs

21 Public lighting and governmental buildings consumes 7% and 5.5% respectively. A study has been implemented to find out opportunities of energy savings in these two sectors. The Ministry of Electricity and Energy has taken the initiative of applying energy efficiency measures in its own buildings. The DCs have started implementing EE measures in their administrative buildings where real savings have been achieved. Up to date energy efficiency projects implemented in governmental buildings reached more than 2000 buildings

22 Recommendations to be applied in Gov. Builds: Short term : Appointment of an energy manager for each governmental building in addition to awareness programs Medium term : Implementing retrofits of the current governmental building facilities especially for the lighting system, in addition of improving power factor for these buildings. Long term : Developing governmental procurement guidelines to take into consideration energy efficiency concept. This stage will rely on the results and experience gained from the medium term recommendations.

25 Supreme Council Decisions The Supreme Council of Energy has taken a decision to develop energy efficiency programs to be applied on National Basis in the following sectors: Street Lighting Governmental buildings Public utilities Residential sector Supreme Energy Councils Technical Secretariat Cabinet of Ministers

26 The Ministry of Electricity and Energy has started an ambitious program for the diffusion of CFLs through the electricity distribution companies As a first phase, 6.5 million lamps 20 watt sold to customers, the price of the lamp was 12 L.E. The customer got one lamp free against one purchased lamp which means a reduction of 50% that bared by the electricity distribution companies. The customer was allowed to pay the price through installments collected through the electricity bills over a period of one year Initiatives Taken By the Egyptian Power Sector to diffuse the use of efficient lighting equipment

27 Energy Efficiency Program for Street Lighting Energy consumption of street lighting in Egypt reached 6.9 TWh in year 2008/2009 representing 6.2% of the total electricity consumed by the country with a cost of about L.E 2.8 billion. A study has been implemented by the Ministry of Electricity and Energy which recommended the measures to be taken for increasing energy efficiency of street lighting and the achieved savings. Upon recommendations of the Supreme Council of Energy, based on the results of this study, an energy efficiency street lighting program is currently implemented in coordination between the Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Local Development and Ministry of Electricity and Energy
