EEC Georgia implements its activities in four directions:
Energy efficiency - set of activities aimed to reduce amount of energy usage without changes of qualitative and quantitative indicators of production.
Local and international expert analyze lets to say that the economical potential for energy savings is estimated in the range of 30-50%.
Georgian government declares high importance to its development::
- Poverty Reduction and Economic Growth Program of Georgia;
- National Action Plan For Environmental Protection.
EEC considers energy efficiency as a critical indigenous energy resource operates locally for realization of global issues utilizing following tools:
- Awareness campaigns;
- Energy management practice;
- Energy Audit in Industrial Companies and buildings;
- Monitoring and targeting;
- Training of trainers;
- Training of staff.
- Improvement of exiting equipment;
- Improvement of maintenance;
- Installation of new, modern equipment.
- Innovative technologies;
- Technological modernization.
Renewable Energies. Georgia has significant sources of renewable energy such as thermal, solar, wind, small hydro and biomass. Development and use these sources will noticeably improve energy balance of the country.
One of the main target of EEC's activities is development of use of renewable energy sources. In this purpose centre research of potential of technical-economical resources and on analytical basis choose and successfully implemented several pilot projects using hydro, bio and solar energy.
Analytical-informational unit finds its sustainability by the following method:
Answering to European call for tenders oriented to the dissemination. This has been made and the Centre won the OPET Network project for the Caucasus region.
Providing informational and consultancy services for energy end users (population, organizations, municipalities and companies) through the seminars, workshops, dissemination of informational materials.
Providing services related to business development, such as presentation of production, contact meetings, exhibitions of local and foreign energy efficiency technologies.
Training Unit is closely connected to the development of the Centre. Because the Centre is strongly oriented towards the business, and also because the investments in energy seriously influence the cost prices of production, the Energy training must include a sound information in business. In this direction Centre has close cooperation with Georgian Technical University.
EEC published books, brochures and leaflets list includes:
Illustrated Dictionary Handbook on Renewable Energies (Russian version of the book was prepared in cooperation with Intersolar Center);
Prepared the Georgian translation and published Wind Energy handbook
"Energy Efficiency In Industry",
"Energy Efficiency In Household Sector",
"Energy for Sustainable World",
"Recommendations on the Construction of Small Biogas Installations for farmers",
"Do it yourself -Small Hydro Power plants",
"Energy Efficiency Home Means….
"Simple Available Measures for House Warming",
Brochure on new energy saving and energy efficient technologies and developments, "Solar Energy for Poverty Reduction".
Natural Gas Supply Chains and Modern Technologies Manual.
EEC actively cooperates with state institutions and authorities, international organizations and non-governmental sector for development of energy and energy efficiency strategy, policy and legal framework.
