Mongolia is feeling the effects of climate change more than most countries, with temperatures rising at twice the rate of the global average.

The country’s first commercial solar plant is now supplying the central electricity grid.

Funded by Japan, part of a bilateral emissions reduction programme, it is seen as a big boost to Mongolia’s renewable-energy sector.

That is caused a shift from coal to renewables, changing the lives of many nomadic families.

    Japans military engineers and mining corporations should move in on Outer Moongolian mineral prospects and sponsor eco tourism in the vales and steppes of the plains. Qatar could supply LNG gas and Japan the heavy equipment although it would need serious adjustments to safely run on compressed natural gas. a 3 party mining conglomerate?

    Don't be naive, the bigger your population, the harder you can depend on solar power and wind power. Even Germany failed to do so.

    Large open bare land where no one lives and no foreigner wants to visit = renewable opportunity. Perhaps Japan should invest in some greenhouses there too if they can get some water.

    But how are they going to supply energy to Japan? Good luck getting anything through the DMZ.
