2016-10-23 | Energy efficiency in Armenia



The European Union promotes secure, competitive, and sustainable energy in its member states. In 2015, the Framework Strategy for Energy Union was launched as one of the European Commission’s 10 Priorities. The aim of strategy is providing secure, sustainable, competitive, and affordable energy. The EU also supports the energy sector in its neighborhood.
The EU supports many projects in Armenia to ensure its commitment to sustainable energy development and to boost the country’s potential for renewable energy and energy security. The EU, together with its partners and the Government of Armenia, has long supported a large number of reforms and projects. Their aim is to help Armenian communities to take steps to increase energy efficiency and reduce energy costs. The cooperation between the EU and Armenia aims to diversify energy resources in the country and make it less dependent on imported energy.
To highlight its strong partnership with Armenia in enhancing energy efficiency and renewable energy, the EU organized #EU4EnergyDays. From 26-29 September series of events were organized to highlight the impact of EU-funded renewable, alternative and sustainable energy programs that contribute to policy development and best practice exchange in Armenia. All of the events held had different topics and were attended by a wide range of beneficiaries and stakeholders.

2016-10-12 | The main purpose of the “CLEEN” project is to develop the capacity of the local CSOs who work in the energy efficiency field

In particular, local organizations will gain the knowledge and skills in order to understand the local situation regarding the energy consumption. As well as the analysis of the policy and the corresponding recommendations. 

To this end, special training modules were developed for the participants of the “CLEEN” project in Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia and Armenia. The modules consist of three parts : NGO management, energy efficiency and additional work with politicians. On the basis of the modules 1-2, there were in 30 people in total who participated in the full-time courses in each country. The courses included homework and its improvements based on feedback. After a completed training that took place in 2015, the project participants must pass a written exam and complete an oral survey in order to confirm their knowledge.

All training modules, as well as video presentations of the project trainings are to be found on the website. This is done in order to provide access to knowledge to other employees of the organization as well as the stakeholders who are interested. The “CLEEN” project team will make sure to increase the level of knowledge among the project participants.

After one completes the online course, participants will take an exam and receive a certificate after. To do so, anyone who is willing to apply should contact the Facebook page of "CLEEN" project : @cleenNET
