Mexico Boiler Efficiency Protocol Development

Version 1.0

With the support of Mexico’s Secretariat of Energy (SENER) and USAID through the Mexico Low Emissions Development Program (MLED), implemented by Tetra Tech, the Climate Action Reserve developed a standardized carbon offset project protocol for commercial and industrial boiler efficiency upgrades in Mexico. The protocol provides financial incentives (in the form of carbon offset credits) for energy efficiency upgrades to boilers of 9.8 MW or larger.
