Environmental solar heating standard: A GHG mitigation policy in Mexico City
This chapter presents the environmental solar heating standard developed in Mexico City for the commercial sector. The obligatory standard is part of both the Mexico City Local Strategy for Global Climate Change and the Clean Air Act. The standard orders new or totally remodelled swimming pools and new or total remodelled commercial businesses that use hot water and which have more than 51 employees (medium-sized business) to use solar energy for at least 30% of their annual energy consumption for water heating. The standard was published in April 2006 by the Ministry of Environment of the Mexico City government after more than a year of negotiations between the different organisations that represent the commercial sector as well as the solar heater producers.
