Workshop on Popularization of Biomass in Georgia

The Biomass Association of Georgia and the municipalities of Tianeti and Dusheti are jointly organizing a workshop on “Popularization of Biomass in Georgia”, which will take place 20th July, 2017 in Tianeti, Georgia. 

Georgia’s biomass energy sector has very good potential to grow, but also many barriers which it must overcome. The country has recently become a member of the Energy Community, and is preparing a National Renewable Energy Action Plan (NREAP) as part of its obligations, and biomass and bioenergy will be a key feature of the NREAP.

The Biomass Association of Georgia was legally established in March 2017 and its mission is to create a common and effective platform for cooperation, information and knowledge exchange on biomass in Georgia. Therefore, the workshop will be an important event to officially launch the organization, as well as to present the main activities and expected results of the GEF SGP funded project on “Popularization of Biomass in Georgia”.

The workshop will also facilitate the sharing of experiences and success stories on biomass among different partners, local agencies and private sector actors, promoting a great discussion on the challenges and opportunities for the development of biomass in Georgia.

Approximately 70 participants from the private, public and financial sectors are expected at the workshop. The draft concept note is attached for your reference.

For the workshop registration, please contact us at info@biomass.ge until 15th July 2017.
