In April 2005, the “The Energy Efficiency and Cleaner Production Centre EECP”, which was established at 2003, within the framework of the Georgian - Norwegian Capacity Building Program on Energy Efficiency and Cleaner Production, was integrated into Energy Efficiency Centre Georgia. Since its establishment EECG has implemented more that 60 projects related to the renewable energy, energy efficiency and climate change policies. More specific, EECG has implemented and on-going awareness rising, capacities building and demonstration projects serving for promotion of renewable energy.
