Objective:

Increase energy efficiency in new and existing residential buildings using mature technologies.

Activities: (2011 - 2014)
The following activities would be undertaken:

  • The distribution of compact fluorescent lamps (CFL) (Distribution of 5 million CFLs, possibly increasing this number as incandescent lamps will be banned according to the government strategy)
  • A programme for roofs and walls insulation (Insulation of 2000 buildings by 2014)
  • Introduction of subsidy/loans to encourage solar water heaters

The following types of support would be needed:

  • Financial support for subsidy for solar hot water heaters
  • Capacity building on insulation technologies and installation of insulation systems
  • Assistance in the development of programmes and MRV systems
  • Providing equipment for insulation material testing

Impact and MRV

Cumulative GHG reductions: 2 MtCO2e
Mitigative capacity:

No information has been provided on mitigative capacity

Co-benefits:

Social: Information has not been provided
Economic: Development of market of solar hot water heaters increases economic activity.
Environmental: Information has not been provided

MRV Framework:

The MRV approach is to be developed. There is a suggestion to base the approach on the CDM whole-building methodology “Energy efficiency technologies and fuel switching in new buildings” (AM0091), which allows for a simplified approach based on a 20% top performance benchmark expressed in terms of CO2/m2.
