Establishment of a Sustainable Energy Information Centre at Tbilisi City Hall, CWP.14.GE

Objective

The Sustainable Energy Information Centre (SEIC) opened on 22 April 2016, in Tbilisi with the participation of Mr. Ilia Elosvhili, Deputy Minister of Energy, Mr. David Narmania, Tbilisi’s Mayor and Mr. Wolfgang Lutz, INOGATE Leader of the Sustainable Energy team and other official and civil Society representatives.

The Georgian centre, housed in the main hall of the Tbilisi City Hall, is an extension of the City Hall services already being provided. It is a place to spread the word on sustainable energy, helping the public make small, affordable investments in energy efficiency. Through greater awareness of energy efficiency, consumers are empowered to make informed choices to save themselves money and help increase their country’s energy security.

The main targets are citizens, business people, the staff of Tbilisi City Hall and school children. The Tbilisi City Hall welcomes in its building an average of 1,600 visitors daily and the centre aims to reach at least 10% of these, directly face-to-face. Conservatively speaking the Centre will engage with over 40,000 visitors annually.

Mr. Xavier Dubuisson, who has worked with INOGATE to initiate Sustainable Energy Information Centres in Chisinau (Moldova) and Tbilisi, sees their role as “empowering citizens to reap the benefits of energy efficiency, environmental protection and energy security, for themselves as well as for their country.” For more information you can access the following link: “Inauguration of the Sustainable Energy Information Centre, Georgia”
