Long-Term Construction Activities (till 2030) For Building Sector in Georgia and Determining Energy Efficiency Activities in Accordance to EU StandardsDocument represents list of possible long term energy efficiency activities for Georgia for harmonization with EU requirements and definition of framework of long term program document terms and conditions. Composed by an expert of NTC on request of low emission development project - “Winrock international”, contractor organization “Remisia”. The work consists of four chapters, first two chapters have abstractive characteristics and highlights two general topics: a) Energy efficiency Commitments of Georgia into the European Union Association context; b) Review of Georgian building sector. Third chapter review the modern energy-efficient technologies and their possible implementation ways for Georgia. Fourth chapter covers opportunities of energy efficient technological zoning of Georgia, general content is presented in forms of diagrams, tables and maps. Based on these characteristic recommendations and conclusions have been presented, that must act as the foundation for defining long term strategic document.
Energy Expense Reduction Opportunities for Walls and Garden Lighting System of Rabati Castle in AkhaltsikheIn October 2015, analysis of energy expense reduction opportunities was conducted by NTC under order of Remissia on the project for walls and garden LED lighting system of Rabati Castle in Akhaltsikhe.
