Houses in Monterrey, Mexico successfully equipped with Energy Efficiency Measures

In the city of Monterrey in Northern Mexico, the NAMA pilot project is just about to be concluded. Coordinated by the Housing Institute of Nuevo Leon State (Instituto de la Vivienda de Nuevo León) and with technical advisory by GIZ, the private housing developer Casas JAVER constructed 52 housing units equipped with NAMA measures.

This pilot project, supported by the NAMA Facility, focusses on improving the thermal building envelope by applying cellular concrete blocks for exterior walls, sustainable thermal insulation on the roofs, double gazed energy efficient windows, sun shading and photovoltaic cells. Every home will save about 8.5 t CO2eq which amounts to 65 per cent of emission reductions.
