  Stage Sector name Sub-sector Objective
NAMA for sustainable housing in Mexico Implementation Buildings The aim of NAMA is to supplement on-going initiatives for energy-efficient housing as laid out in Mexico's Special Climate Change Programme and as currently operated by INFONAVIT. The two objectives of the NAMA are:
1. Extend penetration of basic efficiency standards to the entire new housing market in Mexico
2. Upgrade efficiency standards to more ambitious levels
Cogeneration in the mexican Oil and Gas sector Under development Energy Energy efficiency Reduce fugitive emissions from processing, transport and distribution of natural gas.
NAMA in the Mexican chemical industry Under development Industry Energy efficiency The NAMA focuses on the sub-sectors soaps and synthetic waxes. The objectives are to implement energy efficiency measures, monitor process emissions and design a low emission development strategy for this industrial sector.
Renewable Energies and Energy Efficiency in the Private Sector Under development Energy Energy efficiency This NAMA seeks to promote the implementation of steps for the diversification and strengthening of the national energy network, creation of new jobs, attraction of international funds for the execution of renewable energy and energy efficiency projects
Cogeneration in Mexico Under development Energy This NAMA seeks to eliminate schemes that allow the elimination of barriers that limit the implementation of cogeneration projects in the private sector.
NAMA for Sustainable Housing Retrofit Under development Buildings This NAMA seeks to maximize the efficiency of water, electricity and gas consumption in existing homes. The housing retrofit NAMA is based on a “whole house approach” where efficiency benchmarks are set for total primary energy demand for each building type taking into account climatic variables. This approach includes a simple and cost-effective MRV system, and enables building developers and homeowners to employ a flexible range of interventions to achieve the performance standard desired. It enables a holistic and systematic methodology to energy efficient refurbishment of the building stock. Furthermore, it ensures the continuation of on-going activities and programs.
Domestic Refrigerators NAMA Under development Buildings Decrease emissions from refrigeration through efficiency increase and phase-out of HCFs in the sector
Low Emission Schools Under development Buildings Low Emission Schools Programme aims to empower students to effectively influence their communities on climate change and sustainability , while reducing CO2 emissions within the school.
Car Fleet Renewal in Mexico Under development Transport This NAMA seeks to promote a program that incentivizes the efficiency in the consumption of fossil fuels through the substitution of 500 thousand vehicles with an age of 15 years or older with new vehicles in order to renew the national fleet.
NAMA for New Residential Buildings in Mexico Under development Buildings Renewable energy (solar) The NAMA mitigates emissions in the residential sector by improving electrical, fossil fuel, and water efficiency. These improvements are achieved through deployment of eco-technologies, proliferation of design improvements, and utilization of efficient building materials.
NAMA in the urban residential sector Under development Buildings To achieve nation-wide emissions reductions through deployment of sustainable houses, solid waste, water, sewage and public lighting infrastructure funded partly through the development of carbon credits.
NAMA in the commercial refrigeration sector Under development Buildings This NAMA aims at a broader sector transformation to low GWP refrigerants and energy efficient equipment in the commercial refrigeration sector.
Disposal and Use of Wastes and Solid and Biomass Residues Under development Waste
This NAMA seeks to promote, through and incentive system, activities of disposal, recycling, reuse and efficient exploitation of the solid wastes at national level, which will result altogether in a better management of the these residues and will result in positive impacts to society, economy and environment, axis of sustainability.
Public Transport Route Optimization and Vehicle Fleet Renovation Under development Transport The objective of the NAMA is to increase the efficiency of public transport operations in the 56 Metropolitan areas of Mexico to reduce related GHG emissions and other pollutants.
Small and Medium Business (SME) NAMA Under development Energy Energy efficiency The objective of the NAMA is to improve energy efficiency in SMEs as a contribution to a Low Carbon economy.
NAMA for sugar mills Under development Energy he objective of the NAMA is to improve access of sugar mills to the grid.
Fuel switch in the industry Under development Energy Low carbon fuels This NAMA seeks to promote the creation of new schemes focused on the elimination of the barrier that currently stop the switch to less carbon intensive fuels for the industries.
Efficient Cookstoves Under development Energy Energy efficiency This NAMA seeks to reduce the emissions associated with the consumption of non renewable biomass and to significantly improve the health, the economy and quality of life of all the users through the provisioning of efficient stoves that allow them to cover all of their needs with in a sustainable manner.
Fugitive Emissions Reduction in Natural Gas Processing, Transport and Distribution Under development Energy The central goal of this NAMA is the creation of a framework program that allows project activities consisting of the reduction of methane emission by means of the minimization and/or elimination of fugitive and black carbon emissions in the components of the process, transport and distribution of the national natural gas system.
Freight transport NAMA Under development Transport Road cargo The main objective of the NAMA is to improve energy efficiency in the federal road freight transport sector through the modernization of the fleet, the inclusion of technologies and training programs for drivers which reduce fuel consumption of trucks and thereby reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) and criteria pollutants emissions.
Fuel Switch for the Power Generation Under development Energy Low carbon fuels This NAMA seeks to promote the creation of new schemes focused on the elimination of the barrier that currently stop the switch to less carbon intensive fuels for the private industries.
Solar Water Heaters Under development Energy Renewable energy (solar) This NAMA seeks to reduce GHG emissions associated to fossil fuels consumption through schemes that promote the installation and use of solar heaters in residential, commercial, industrial and agricultural sectors.

Feasibility studies for NAMAs

  Stage Sector name Sub-sector Objective
NAMA for the sustainable use and disposal of the biomass in Mexico, turning it into renewable energy Feasibility study Industry
Renewable energy (biomass)
Energy efficiency
The NAMA has two objectives.

In the short term, the objective is:

  • Incorporation and compliance to a voluntary environmental program of the Tequila industry for the sustainable disposition of vinazas, bagasse and agave leaf, considered today as a waste.
  • Replacement of fossil fuel in the Mexican industry with renewable biofuel derived from the agave, promoting the installation and operation of biomass based cogeneration systems that use agave waste from the Tequila industry.
  • Accreditation of emissions reduction in the production of Tequila through the distinctive "Holohuella CO2" (hologram-carbon footprint) as a physical proof to adhere to the bottle.
In the long term, the NAMA will incorporate to the voluntary environmental program, other biomasses considered a waste besides the Agave.
Optimization of the conventional bus system in the valley of Mexico City Feasibility study Transport Public transport The objective of the NAMA is to improve the conventional bus system in the valley of Mexico. The actions reviewed as a NAMA in this feasibility study were the: establishment of an appropriate institutional and regulatory framework, the implementation of changes in the bus system (such as the reorganization of routes and concession management), public awareness raising and outreach, and the implementation of a transport monitoring system.
