Project Description and Summary of Services

 

 

 

 

 

This was the first ever housing-focused climate change project under the auspices of the Clean Development Mechanism of UNFCCC. This project implemented “Housing for a Healthier Future” and brought the benefits of energy-efficient homes to low-income residents of South Africa.

IIEC built 16 new energy-efficient demonstration homes in township communities in South Africa. The homes were built using energy-efficient components and passive-solar design. Representatives of the South African and Dutch building industries worked together with IIEC in identifying energy-efficient materials and construction methods. The residences that were build under this project were monitored for their energy and greenhouse gas savings, as well as health and quality-of-life benefits to residents. The results were reported to both the Dutch and South African governments, as well as to the U.N.
