Over 150 eco-friendly busses will be in Tbilisi Bus Park in 2016.
European Bank for Reconstruction and Development will allocate 30 million EUR to Tbilisi Municipality.
“We try to work on reduction of pollution and harmful gas emission. From this point of view, two projects should be distinguished in 2016. Initially, we start renovation of our municipal bus park. Negotiations are already finished with European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and they have allocated 30 million EUR. We plan to purchase CNG gas powered buses, – Davit Narmania, mayor of Tbilisi Municipality has declared.
Presentation of “Sustainable Energy Action Plan” (SEAP) will be held at the Municipality on Friday.
“Sustainable Energy Action Plan” includes projects in transport, buildings, municipality infrastructure (outdoor lighting, landfills) and green space development sectors. “SEAP” is worked out within the frame of “Mayors’ Agreement”.
Tbilisi has joined to “Mayors’ Agreement” in 2010 and it envisages reduction of CO2 emission by 20% until 2020.
