Mongolian government to integrate technical procedures developed by Geres into its new thermal insulation regulations
This summer, the Mongolian Ministry of Construction and Urban Development amended its Construction Codes and Standards on Building Envelope Thermal Insulation for Mongolia, using techniques developed by our project to renovate fragile housing in Ulaanbaatar. This new regulation will come into force on January 1st, 2021.
This experience has been acquired and recognized thanks to the conduct of solid energy assessments and certifications in the outskirts of Ulaanbaatar since 2019 by our teams.
More thermal insulation, less air pollution
Launched in 2018 and implemented until 2022, our energy renovation project aims to provide accessible thermal insulation, building heating and cooking efficiency solutions to households living in semi-informal areas of Ulaanbaatar in Mongolia.
Improving the energy efficiency of these houses not only reduces respiratory infections, limits the financial burden of excessive fuel consumption and more generally mitigates the effects of climate change in Ulaanbaatar.
Our actions will continue in order to reach our main objective: to renovate 1000 houses!
That would be very good news for the Mongolian capital, which is considered as the most polluted city in the world during the winter since 2017.
This success can be credited to the work carried out jointly with our technical and financial partners: People In Need, the European Union, the Mongolian National Construction Association, the Center for Energy Efficiency in Buildings of the Mongolian University of Science and Technology, the Abbé Pierre Foundation and CzechAid.
