25,000 Solar Roofs project.

Country: Mexico

Implementing organisation: Deutsche Gesellschaft fE-r Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH

BMUB grant: 3,029,441- 4172752.03 US Dollar

Duration: 10/2009 till 08/2014

Partner institution: Instituto del Fondo Nacional de la Vivienda para los Trabajadores (INFONAVIT)

Objective and activities: The project is helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from Mexican households by promoting the use of solar collectors. An investment cost subsidy - similar to the German market incentive programme - is being made available, managed via the housing fund INFONAVIT%s %Green Mortgage%, for the purchase of up to 22,000 solar collectors. The project conducts training programmes to increase know-how regarding the installation and maintenance of the collectors. Information sessions on solar collectors are organised to sensitise relevant institutions and potential customers to the benefits of the technology and explain financing options. This ensures the low-income population have access to innovative technology, which high initial investment costs would otherwise restrict.

Innovative, country-wide model developed, in cooperation with the project partner, for subsidising solar thermal energy for low-income families

Financing agreement successfully concluded with the project partner INFONAVIT

Minimum standards adopted for installation quality

Training conducted for installation companies and developers

Subsidies provided for at least 19,000 solar collectors

Comprehensive informational materials disseminated and information sessions conducted in a total of 15 federal states
