1 min read

The FINANCIAL — The EU-funded energy programme INOGATE is opening a sustainable energy (SE) information centre in Tbilisi, aimed at increasing public awareness of issues such as the benefits of energy efficiency and renewable energy, according to EU Neighbourhood Info.

A Memorandum of Understanding to establish the centre was signed last week by Energy Minister Kakha Kaladze, Tbilisi Mayor David Narmania, EU Head of Delegation to Georgia Janos Herman, and INOGATE team leader Adrian Twomey.
 
A press release from INOGATE said “the SE information centre grows out of Tbilisi’s Action Plan as a member of the Covenant of Mayors and INOGATE activities which promote SE in its partner countries.” The Centre in Georgia is a pilot project for future centres in INOGATE partner countries.
 
“It will bring about a new way of thinking about energy end-use and reuse of renewable energy,” said Adrian Twomey.
 
INOGATE is an EU-funded programme promoting international energy co-operation between the European Union and the Partner Countries of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan. It works to support the EU policy frameworks of the Baku Initiative, the Eastern Partnership – Energy Security Platform and the Energy Community.
