To support a transition to cleaner heating in Mongolia, the project will develop a renewable heating system with solar thermal and ground source heat pumps to be supply heat for a community building (community center or school) in the South Gobi region of Mongolia. The project will involve a consultative process with provincial and district authorities, building users, and building managers in the design and execution of the project and will involve extensive outreach and capacity development to build awareness of the technology, including design and construction approach. The project will also support operations and maintenance of the system over two winters with continuous monitoring and capacity development.
PROJECT RATIONALE AND LINKAGE TO COUNTRY/REGIONAL STRATEGY
The proposed project will demonstrate renewable energy heating system viability in a remote area of Mongolia. The project will support commissioning of the system, its operation and maintenance over two winters, and capacity development among regional leaders and heating technicians. This project will demonstrate the potential for a technology that can meet the heating demands in cold areas, be maintained even in remote regions, reduce air pollution, and contribute to greenhouse gas mitigation.
Greenhouse gas emissions reduced
Access to quality heat supply increased

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment.
