In 10 Tbilisi schools participating in the competition “Make Your School more Energy Efficient” trainings on energy efficiency and energy audits were conducted.
Educational activities were conducted within the Georgian Energy Sector Reform Project (GESRP) project, implemented by the Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development, with the support of the European Union and KfW development bank and in partnership with the German independent energy consulting company GOPA intec.
About 150 students attended theoretical and practical trainings on the energy efficiency of buildings, renewable energy sources and energy-saving practices. From now on, Tbilisi schools will introduce the knowledge into school practice and compete with each other in implementing energy-efficient activities.
In the second half of June, the three winning schools will be ceremonially awarded energy-efficient prizes, and certificates will be given to all participating students and teachers.
