Project context, objectives and description
In Mongolia, the energy sector accounts for most greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), as most of the electricity, heating and transportation rely upon fossil fuels. It accounted for 50.08% of the total emissions in 2014. According to the MoE, the power generation alone is expected to reach 12,328 million kWh by 2030 by doubling 2018 generation; GHG emission from the energy sector is to increase 4 times from 2006. Economic and population growth are key factors for the increased energy generation, especially in industrial sectors such as mining. Also, by 2045, the country’s population is expected to reach 5 million by 54% higher than 2018.
The project objectives are i.) Strengthening human resource capacity of the energy sector ii.) Increasing public awareness of energy conservation and information outreach, incorporation of energy efficient and cost-effective solutions in construction drawings, and comprehensive steps to reduce building heat loss are fundamentals for improving efficiency of the energy sector. This project is aligned with IO1. Strengthened national, sub-national and local green growth planning, financing and institutional frameworks and IO2. Increased green growth investment flows which enable partner governments to implement green growth policies, IO3. Improved multi-directional knowledge sharing and learning to empower local and external agents necessary to drive green growth processes in partner governments.
The project will focus on policy advisory outputs and accelerate EE market development in the country by implementing following activities i.) Study of international examples for the design of Energy Efficiency Incentive Mechanisms ii.) Development of Building Energy Efficiency Roadmap iii.) Development of calculation methodologies for energy performance of electric space heaters within the framework the implementation of the Energy Standards and Labelling regulation iv.) Design and Improve standard Energy Performance Contract Requirements v.) Design and deliver a capacity building program to the government and designated entities at the national and subnational level to implement the NEEAP vi.) Design and deliver a capacity building and public awareness programme to the national and subnational stakeholders on Energy Tariff Policy Reform vii.) Strengthened cooperation dialogue between national stakeholders ESCO companies and associations in China and Slovakia.
Type of services provided, and results achieved
Impact: Improved energy efficiency (EE) and reduced GHG emissions in energy and building sectors.
Outcome: Energy Efficiency of Mongolia’s building and energy sectors is increased through incentive mechanisms, improved energy demand management and implementation of ESCO projects
Project Outputs completed in 2019:
i. Green Growth Policies:
- The calculation methodology for electric heaters EE directly served the EE S&L policy development. The review of EE incentive mechanisms fed into the work of the WG.
ii. Green Investments:
- Advisory outputs that aim to create enabling environment (3): GGGI developed the Energy Performance Agreement template and the Technical Methodology on MEPS of Electric Space heaters to accelerate adoption of two major regulatory documents: Energy Standards and Labelling and Energy Efficiency Incentive Mechanism. Also, the Private Sector Engagement and accelerating collaboration between China and Mongolia was completed.
iii. Capacity Building and Knowledge Products:
- Total of 5 capacity building activities in the form of workshops.
- Total of 3 Knowledge products delivered, including the Global Case Study on Energy Efficiency Incentive Mechanism, Methodology on MEPS testing of Electric Space heaters, and Thailand EE Market presentation.
