Cooperation: Installation of a Photovoltaic System at the Arkhangai Archaeological Research and Exhibition Center (Mongolia)

The Tsatsyn Ereg Archaeological Research and Exhibition Center, located in Arkhangai Province, Mongolia, was equipped between September and September with a solar photovoltaic system financed by the Prince's Government.

Now operating on renewable energies, this archaeological center, the fruit of the joint mission led by the Museum of Prehistoric Anthropology of the Principality and the Institute of the Mongolian Academy of Sciences, becomes a model of public building that respects the environment. .

With a maximum power of 4 kWp installed, this photovoltaic system will allow the supply of electricity to the building, in a country that has 257 days of sunshine on average per year. In addition, a solar thermal system for hot water supply has also been installed. The staff of the Archaeological Center were trained in the maintenance and operation of these new facilities, by the NGO Geres, technical partner of the project.

As a reminder, researchers from Mongolia and the Museum of Prehistoric Anthropology have extended their scientific and cultural partnership with new archaeological missions. As a result of this collaboration, the Tsatsyn Ereg site has been included on UNESCO's Tentative List.
