The International Energy Agency (IEA) kicked off the EU4Energy Energy Efficiency Training Week in Tbilisi on October 16, 2017. The event brings together 150 participants from 11 countries across Eastern Partnership and Central Asia.
The five-day programme, organised in partnership with Georgia’s Ministry of Energy, consists of five parallel courses on energy efficiency across high-demand sectors, including construction, industry, lighting, appliances and equipment, and transport.
The week also includes presentations from high-level experts from the International Energy Agency, the European Commission, the Georgian Ministry of Energy and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.
The event was organised as part of EU4Energy – a European Union initiative that works with the eleven countries that make up the Eastern Partnership and Central Asia regions to support their energy policy-making. The IEA is leading the implementation of the EU4Energy Programme for the Eastern Partnership and Central Asia countries in the areas of improving energy data capabilities, enhancing data collection and monitoring, and assisting in evidence-based energy policy design relevant to countries’ needs.
