Mongolia: Renewable Heating Demonstration in Remote Areas

Sovereign Project | 54360-001

To support a transition to cleaner heating in Mongolia, the project will develop a renewable heating system with solar thermal and ground source heat pumps to be supply heat for a community building (community center or school) in the South Gobi region of Mongolia. The project will involve a consultative process with provincial and district authorities, building users, and building managers in the design and execution of the project and will involve extensive outreach and capacity development to build awareness of the technology, including design and construction approach. The project will also support operations and maintenance of the system over two winters with continuous monitoring and capacity development.

Description To support a transition to cleaner heating in Mongolia, the project will develop a renewable heating system with solar thermal and ground source heat pumps to be supply heat for a community building (community center or school) in the South Gobi region of Mongolia. The project will involve a consultative process with provincial and district authorities, building users, and building managers in the design and execution of the project and will involve extensive outreach and capacity development to build awareness of the technology, including design and construction approach. The project will also support operations and maintenance of the system over two winters with continuous monitoring and capacity development.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The proposed project will demonstrate renewable energy heating system viability in a remote area of Mongolia. The project will support commissioning of the system, its operation and maintenance over two winters, and capacity development among regional leaders and heating technicians. This project will demonstrate the potential for a technology that can meet the heating demands in cold areas, be maintained even in remote regions, reduce air pollution, and contribute to greenhouse gas mitigation.
Impact

Greenhouse gas emissions reduced

Access to quality heat supply increased

Outcome Acceptance of renewable heating systems increased
Outputs

Renewable heating system in remote area constructed.

Renewable heating system awareness and capacity to install and maintain renewable heating system enhanced

Project Data Sheets (PDS) contain summary information on the project or program. Because the PDS is a work in progress, some information may not be included in its initial version but will be added as it becomes available. Information about proposed projects is tentative and indicative.

The Access to Information Policy (AIP) recognizes that transparency and accountability are essential to development effectiveness. It establishes the disclosure requirements for documents and information ADB produces or requires to be produced.

The Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ADB-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance of ADB's operational policies and procedures.

In preparing any country program or strategy, financing any project, or by making any designation of, or reference to, a particular territory or geographic area in this document, the Asian Development Bank does not intend to make any judgments as to the legal or other status of any territory or area.
