The objective of the NAMA is to reduce emissions from the domestic refrigeration sector by providing technical support and capacity building.
Activities: (2017 - 2021)
This NAMA will address and support capacity building measures for:
- a ban of HFCs and the application of MEPS in the domestic refrigeration sector
- production line conversions using hydrocarbon refrigerants instead of HFC and changed product design to improve energy efficiency
- an innovative replacement program including a sustainable on bill financing mechanism with incentives for low-income households when old-inefficient appliances are returned
- implementation of a sustainable EPR scheme by which producers and importers are given responsibility for domestic refrigerators at the end of their lives.
The NAMA, submitted in the third call for projects of the NAMA Facility, has been pre-selected by the NAMA Facility Board and is currently under appraisal.
Impact and MRV
|Cumulative GHG reductions: 16.8 MtCO2e|
No information has been provided on mitigative capacity
|Social:|| * Training and education
|Economic:|| * Reduced energy costs for households
|Environmental:|| * Preservation of valuable raw materials
Two main indicators will be used to monitor and report the reduction of greenhouse gases emissions: the number of refrigerators replaced, and the number of refrigerators that are managed by certified companies. The implementation of an anticipated recycling rate within the Extended Producer Responsibility will ensure that environmental management is (financially) covered by the manufacturers.
Furthermore, manufactures will report the number of produced and sold R-600a fridges.
Additionally the committee of the National Green Replacement fund will report on private co-financing, e.g. contribution of the private sector but also about the credit volume disbursed under the NAMA.
