Georgia to introduce energy efficient building code for 2017-2022

Monday, March 13
Georgia is on a path to become more energy efficient in the construction sector by using greener technology that is more sustainable and cheaper to operate.

Throughout 2017-2022 Georgia will implement energy efficient projects in the construction sector that will affect all new private and public buildings.

“Soon all new buildings in Georgia will be energy efficient. Meanwhile, we will take actions to make the old and existing buildings more energy efficient. This will contribute to Georgia’s economic security and will reduce our citizen’s expenses”, said deputy Minister of Economy Irma Kavtaradze, who today met with the delegation of the European Union (EU).

The main goal of the meeting was to discuss ways of incorporating EU standards for building energy efficient buildings in Georgia.

Government officials presented their action plan for energy efficiency, while EU partners promised aid in the implementation of the plan.
