NAMA Facility Donors – the UK Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) have approved funding to support the implementation of an ambitious NAMA Support Project (NSP) in Mongolia as part of the NAMA Facility’s 6th Call.

The NSP “Mongolia – Energy Performance Contracting for Residential Retrofitting in Ulaanbaatar City” (Mongolia – Energy Performance Building Retrofitting for short) will support the government in implementing a large-scale thermo-technical retrofitting (TTR) program and create the market conditions to scale up investments in energy efficiency. The project will enable 14,068 households (over 53,000 residents) living in 375 precast building blocks to directly benefit from the NSP through improved thermal comfort and indoor air quality and increased value and lifespan of the buildings. The NSP will initiate the energy performance contracting model in the country for the energy efficient retrofitting of residential buildings.

Following the Detailed Preparation Phase (DPP)*, during which the NSP worked to further elaborate the proposed project concept, a comprehensive NSP Proposal was submitted to the NAMA Facility. Based on an in-depth assessment of the proposal, Donors then approved the NSP to enter the Implementation Phase.

The NAMA Facility’s support for these NSPs illustrates the Donors’ continued commitment to ambitious climate action.
