Attaining low-carbon energy access solutions for all
Attaining low-carbon energy access solutions for all
The project aims at promoting demonstration, dissemination and commercialization of low-carbon technologies through construction of grid-tied PV micro-stations. It is planned to build solar stations with 24 kW total capacity in 3 sites: “Trchunyan Tun” Educational complex - Children’s home, “Ardzagank” kindergarten and "Armenian Green Technologies Center" Foundation in Gyumri. The proposed activities are in line with the recent amendment to the Law of the Republic of Armenia “On energy saving and renewable energy”, that provides any economic entity an opportunity to have up to 150 kW capacity of grid-connected solar power station. They are also complementary to the EU-funded project being “Green energy for ‘green’ socio-economic progress in Shirak marz”, providing grant funding for "green" facilities.
“Trchunyan Tun” educational complex is a shelter for 6-18 year-old 80 orphans and children from socially vulnerable families. Fifty employees are involved in childcare and education of these children.
“Ardzaganq” kindergarten currently has 204 pupils. Within the frames of “Green energy for ‘green’ socio-economic development in Shirak marz” project a small grant was allocated for installing a solar thermal system. The kindergarten management has committed to make discounts for children from socially vulnerable families through savings expected from PV micro-station installation.
“Armenian Green Technologies Center” Foundation was established within the frame of the EU-funded “Green energy for ‘green’ socio-economic progress in Shirak marz” project. It carries out consultation and educational activities in the use of renewable energy source (RES) and energy efficient (EE) technologies in Armenia. As part of the educational component, a pilot production of RES models and equipment with the capacity of 400 kWh is planned to be established.

Project Characteristics and Results
Notable Community Participation
Beneficiaries aged 16-18 from “Trchunyan Tun” educational complex together with project team will participate in construction of the solar power basis and support base. It is also planned to promote knowledge transfer and practical education on RES and EE for youth, students and other stakeholders through “learning by doing” approach.
Policy Influence
It is expected that certain recommendations on improvement of procedures of decision-making agencies (e.g. Public Services Regulatory Commission, local self-governance, etc.) on newly-introduced net metering of the PV stations may be developed by the project staff based on the experience gained.
