ECA is assisting the Ministry of Energy in Mongolia, under Asian Development Bank funding, to develop a strategy to deliver clean heating to peri-urban (ger) areas in the capital, Ulaanbaatar. Mongolia’s harsh winter climate, with temperatures regularly below -20C, leaves ger households dependent on burning coal for heating. The result is some of the worst air pollution in the world. The ADB is supporting the Mongolian government in addressing this challenge with ECA advising on lower-polluting alternatives to provide winter heat supplies.
