The NAMA mitigates emissions in the residential sector by improving electrical, fossil fuel, and water efficiency. These improvements are achieved through deployment of eco-technologies, proliferation of design improvements, and utilization of efficient building materials.
Activities: (2014 - 2019)
The NAMA approaches building efficiency from a ‘whole house’ approach. From this perspective, efficiency benchmarks are set for total primary energy demand based on building type and climate. Three energy efficiency standards comprise the aforementioned actions and supplemental finance is provided to cover the incremental cost of energy-efficient appliances in new homes. Building developers and home-owners are then able to employ any combination of interventions that achieve the targeted efficiency level.
Such an approach has numerous benefits. It enables a simple and cost-efficient MRV system that captures the net efficiency improvements of a broad range of eco-technologies, building design, and building materials. It also enables stakeholders to find the most cost-efficient combination of these features. Furthermore, the tiered benchmark approach enables donors to target specific activities that align with their development priorities, and provides flexibility for regulators to increase the stringency of the programme over time.
The efficiency levels of the Sustainable Housing NAMA will be coordinated with a graded labelling system to inform home buyers of the expected house performance. The label will clearly illustrate the level of efficiency, as well as the expected savings in terms of power, water, fuel and emissions compared to a reference home. This information can be used by the buyer to factor the long term cost savings into the purchasing decision

No information has been provided on mitigative capacity
|Social:|| >Comfort for homeowners
>Access to clean energy
>Capacity building in sustainability for developers and homeowners
>Human and institutional capacities
|Economic:|| >Economic savings for homeowners that can be reflected in their gas, electricity and water bills.
>Economic savings for the government, due to a reduction in energy subsidies >Increase in the number of green jobs
|Environmental:|| >Air Quality improvements and efficient Land Use
An MRV system has been developed to measure the performance of every energy efficiency action and the overall performance of a house. Some of the measured variables are: gas, water and electricity consumption; room temperature, specific temperature in walls, floor and ceiling; and CO2 concentration. The mitigation potential is obtained by applying specific emission factors for each mitigation action.
