The demand on electricity consumption in Egypt has rapidly increased during the last two decades. The installed capacity increased from 2240 MW in year 1981 to 14600 in year 2003, whereas the electricity consumption increased from 18 TWh to 79.8 TWh during the same period. The annual increase in electricity consumption within the last five-year plan 1997-2002 reached 7.6%. The Ministry of Electricity & Energy, MOEE is exerting huge efforts to meet the annual increase in electricity demand. One of the effective measures adopted by MOEE to meet this demand is energy conservation. Egyptian Governmental Buildings represent a high share of electricity consumption, where it reached 3800 GWh about 5.5% of the total electricity consumption for the year 2001/2002 and amounting to 0.7 Billion LE, for this reason, the Minister of Electricity and Energy has entrusted a group of experts to conduct a study for improving energy efficiency in this sectorThis sector has been selected for the following reasons: _ It is one of the substantial consuming sectors, about 5.5% of the country total consumption. _ The energy consumption patterns of these buildings are very similar, which support replication of feasible energy efficiency projects._ There are no programs or efforts regarding raising the capabilities of the technical operators of governmental buildings on energy efficiency and energy conservation and no awareness efforts are directed to the workers and employees occupying these buildings regarding energy conservation practices. _ The used procurements guidelines for governmental buildings for new equipment have no energy efficient constrains or incentives. Therefore, the study objective was to develop a list of energy conservation opportunities economically feasible and technically proven that is applicable to most of electricity-intensive consuming governmental buildings with implementation program. The study concluded three main clusters of recommendations on short, medium and long term implementation timeframe. The short term recommendations include:Appointment of an energy manager for each governmental building provided with sufficient training, responsible for following up the energy conservation measures.Conducting awareness programs targeting the employees occupying the governmental buildings. The medium term recommendations include:Implementing retrofits of the current governmental building facilities especially for the lighting system, including replacement of incandescent lamps by the compact fluorescent lamps and using electronic ballasts instead of the magnetic ballasts, in addition of improving power factor for these buildings. The long term recommendations concentrate on: 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. Recommendations of this study have been approved by the Ministerial Committee for Services for its application at the national level.The paper will present a quick over view of the different stages of the study, recommendations and actions taken based on these recommendations, including energy efficiency program implementation in governmental buildings.
