Expanding access to affordable and clean energy in Talin
Expanding access to affordable and clean energy in Talin
The project objective is to introduce innovative low-carbon energy solutions to enhance energy security of Talin community. It aims at utilizing the high solar energy potential in Aragatsotn region to create enabling conditions for diffusion and commercialization of low-carbon technology in the community and beyond.
This initiative, developed by “SEMANT” community-based NGO in cooperation with Talin community administration, plans to install micro PV systems in the community pre-school, sports school and cultural center, as well as implement EE measures in the community music school and upgrade the street lighting. It is expected that the overall saving from the PV systems will make up around 110,000 kWh energy, whereas the upgraded street lighting with 450 LED lamps will ensure at least 50,000 kWh. Moreover, a knowledge center for clean energy solutions will be established in the community college to promote interest towards energy conservation and use of renewables among young practitioners.

Project Characteristics and Results
Emphasis on Sustainable Livelihoods
Armenia is highly dependent on imported fossil fuel for energy production, which has a negative influence on the environment and local livelihoods. It is estimated that as a result of the project activities, around US$ 8,200 will be saved annually, which will be directed to cover the essential community needs, such as insulation and heating of the public buildings and increasing the number of LED lights for street lighting.
Promoting Public Awareness of Global Environment
Different awareness raising activities are planned within the project implementation, including meetings, discussions and trainings, aiming to inform a broader audience about the benefits of alternative green energy solutions and associated co-benefits. These events will be covered by regional media (Talin Ashkrar and Aragatsotn TV companies) and posted on “SEMANT” NGO and Talin community website.
