News and Recent Developments

  • February 2006: Mongolia is a country with one of the highest per capita emissions of greenhouse gases among Asian countries due to its small population and big territory. The country is dominated by vast dry steppes and rocky mountain ranges. Mongolia is vulnerable to climate change. On the other hand, the country possesses a considerable amount of renewable energy from the sun, wind, water and biogas. Communities can contribute to greenhouse gas reduction not only by using renewable energy appliances, but they are also able to produce renewable energy appliances like solar cookers, solar panels etc. Initially, the Project Proponent had manufactured 38 pieces of experimental solar cookers by MON/05/14 project and successfully commercialized and distributed to local communities in Khovd province. According to numerous requests of local communities, the implementing CBO intends to establish a Solar Cooker Manufacturing Workshop. Solar cookers will be very useful devices to reduce fire wood consumption in the steppe and Gobi areas, and the project intends to overcome some barriers in promoting the adoption of renewable energy. By this project the manufacturing community has made over 300 solar cookers and has most distributed to Gobi area where solar balance is greater than other areas.[1]
