During the World Ozone Day 2023 and under the 35th Meeting of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer (MOP 35) which took place between 23-27 October in Nairobi, Kenya, the MOP 35 discussed issues related to the implementation of the Montreal Protocol with the theme of fixing the ozone layer and reducing climate change.
BUILD_ME project was mentioned in the Volume 1: Progress Report prepared by The Technology and Economic Assessment Panel (TEAP) as a case study under the Decision XXXIV/3 that focuses on enabling enhanced access and facilitating the transition to energy-efficient and low- or zero-global-warming-potential technologies which was adopted by the parties.
The report discussed the BUILD_ME project which aims to improve the energy performance of buildings in MENA region by integrating renewables and energy efficient systems. The report introduced a BUILD_ME case study that illustrated a possible reduction of building's energy use from 108 to 26 kWh/m2/year through thermal insulation, EE equipment, and renewable energy measures, demonstrating a 75% emission reduction potential and how it investigates as well economic aspects.
The Technology and Economic Assessment Panel (TEAP) provides, at the request of Parties, technical information related to the alternative technologies that have been investigated and employed to make it possible to virtually eliminate use of Ozone Depleting Substances (such as CFCs and halons), that harm the ozone layer.
