Use of stoves and fuel eliminated by using renewable energy

In cooperation with the UNDP, Asia Foundation, URECA LLC, and "GerHub " NGO, the capital city’s administration is implementing a pilot project to transfer households in the ger area to renewable energy in order to reduce the number of stoves in Ulaanbaatar.

As part of the project, households now rely on renewable energy for heating and electricity, coupled with improved insulation. As a result, the households have eliminated the use of stoves and fuel, and reduced the emission of the air pollution and carbon dioxide. In this regard, Deputy Governor in charge of the Social Sector, Green Development, and Air and Environmental Pollution O.Nominchimeg and representatives of the UNDP, Asia Foundation, URECA LLC, and "GerHub " NGO met with the members of the households involved in the project. Currently, five households are involved in the project. In doing so, the officials emphasized that they are implementing a policy to support female heads of households.

Deputy Governor O.Nominchimeg:

-Even the cold season has started, the project will continue to be implemented starting with insulation. Based on this, 75-100 households will be involved in the project next year and will be transferred to clean energy. The project has a positive effect on the reduction of air pollution in Ulaanbaatar, and the living environment of the households is improving. Furthermore, there is potential for additional income through carbon credits by having their contributions to Mongolia's effort in reducing carbon dioxide emissions as per the Paris Agreement assessed. Projects that aim to reduce carbon dioxide can participate in international voluntary markets. However, in our country, a comprehensive legal framework governing the inclusion of projects and related relations has yet to be established. Therefore, a draft law is being developed to regulate it.

Founder of “URECA” LLC E.Orchlon:

-The use of stoves in the households has been eliminated and electric heaters were introduced based on the system using solar panels and battery collectors. The system is equipped with smart sensors that allow to know where the energy is coming from, whether the household is using a stove, and calculate how much carbon dioxide emissions are being reduced. It can be certified and traded with carbon credits. For example, one household participating in the pilot project reduced its carbon dioxide emissions by 5-10 tons in seven months, and we sold it as credits on our platform. The goal is to make the installation of the energy system as cost-effective as possible, with households anticipated to repay the investment through their carbon credit earnings within two years after installation. Next year, it is planned to introduce a technology that will keep the heat for six hours even if the electric heater is out of power. Solar panels and battery collectors are used in order to avoid additional load on the power system during peak hours.
