An Aggressive energy policy reform is needed toClimate Change Risk Management Programme in Egypt6* Enhancing exploration activities for fossil energy resources* Upgrading Energy Efficiency (EE) both in the supply anddemand side sectors.* Increasing the contribution of RE resources .* Development of an appropriate energy institutionalframework .
Institutional strengtheningClimate Change Risk Management Programme in Egypt7* Challenged by the lack of clarity on the institutionalresponsibility for EE, the EEU was established in the COM, forshifting towards a more energy efficient economy and greateruse of RE and,* to provide technical advice and support to the Supreme EnergyCouncil "SEC" and coordinates national EE efforts across allsectors to strengthen the linkage between policy development
Supporting the SEC’s PrioritiesClimate Change Risk Management Programme in Egypt8
Decentralized EEU’s. in key ministers toClimate Change Risk Management Programme in Egypt9* Creating sector-specific EE units in each of the major energyproduction and consumption sectors to carry on theresponsibility of planning, implementation and monitoring EEactivities in these sectors.
Energy Efficiency Indicators Specific EE indicators and the streamlining of each of thesector’s energy information system and supportingdatabases should be simultaneously developed to create thebasis for future benchmarks, regulations and standards. An analytical study sponsored through the MDG-F/CCRMP has identified and evaluated the necessarystructure for an effective indicators system that takes intoaccount the relationship between energy consumption andeconomic structure and activity for the sector and its mainsub-sectors.Climate Change Risk Management Programme in Egypt10
Funding and Legislation The successful implementation of the recommendedsector-specific EE units will require funding and technicalassistance (TA). there will also be a need to provide financing schemes toenergy end-users to fund EE projects . it is critical that the Government continue energy pricereform, develop and implement EE law and associatedregulations that can foster an EE financing market.Climate Change Risk Management Programme in Egypt11
Climate Change Risk Management Programme in Egypt12Most of the lighting used in Egypt is to a great extentresponsible for the system peak time electricityproduction; in addition to high electricity bills, it has anegative impact on the environment by requiring thecombustion of greater quantity of fuel in power plantsresulting in atmospheric pollutants shown to cause globalwarming.In order to reduce energy consumed by lightingequipment through its efficient utilization, it wasnecessary to assess the following:* The most common types of lighting used in Egypt.* The market size of the lighting equipment inEgypt.Promotion of Efficient Lighting
Efficient Lighting EquipmentClimate Change Risk Management Programme in Egypt13Compact Fluorescent Lamps and Electronic Ballasts havebeen targeted to reduce the share of lighting in total energyconsumption, based on the following:• Simple technology, does not need special preparation.• Simple and short pay back period.• Direct and high impact on energy saving and CO2 reduction.
Technical and Financial Feasibilityof Efficient Lighting EquipmentClimate Change Risk Management Programme in Egypt14 Using CFL lamp saves 80% of the electricity consumed by theequivalent incandescent one, therefore leading to a correspondingaverage energy savings per one lamp over its lifetime of about 750kWh and a corresponding fuel savings of 225 kg oil equivalent and675 kg CO2 reductions. Using of low Wattage tubular fluorescent lamps leads to energysavings are 10% of its current consumption. Replacing gradually, magnetic ballasts by electronic ones, leads toenergy savings of around 30%. Based on current market prices and electricity tariff, CFL isfinancially feasible for residential, commercial and industrial users

Climate Change Risk Management Programme in Egypt17Barriers to increase market penetration of energyefficient lighting in the residential sector: The residential sector consumes 41% of the total electricityconsumption out of which 34% for lighting purposes (13%of the total consumption) mainly consumed during peakhours. Principal barriers to increasing the market penetration ofenergy efficient lighting in this sector: Low awareness by consumers and, to some extent, retailersconcerning the benefits of energy efficient lighting Lack of experience, and in some cases trust, of the targetedconsumers regarding the performance and quality of newlighting products; Usually higher upfront costs of energy efficient lightingcompared to the alternatives with lower efficiency .
Climate Change Risk Management Programme in Egypt18Efficient Lighting Initiatives undertakentargeting the residential sector Diffusion program of CFLs by the Distribution Companiesthrough leasing programs. Encourage the private sector to manufacture CFL locally. Public awareness programs through media, seminars andexhibitions Cooperation with NGOs for increase customer awareness ,and training technicians for mounting and repairingefficient lighting equipment.
