Green Mrgashen: Towards alternative and clear energy
The project objective is to introduce innovative low-carbon energy solutions to enhance energy security of Mrgashen community. It aims at utilizing the high solar energy potential in the region to create enabling conditions for diffusion and commercialization of low-carbon technology in the community and beyond. Reducing energy costs will allow the community to redirect the savings for implementing other social-economic and environmental projects that will help improve the living and social conditions of the community population. Moreover, development of alternative energy will directly support the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions which is a big challenge in Mrgashen community as well.

The project aims at providing accessible and practical solutions on using the potential of renewable energy and energy efficient technologies, thereby directly contributing the community development.

The core activities of the project include:
• Installation of a 5-kW PV and a 300-liter solar thermal system in the community preschool;
• Installation of a 20-kW PV station for street lighting and replacement with 250 LED lamps;
• Insulation of the beneficiary multi-story apartment building entrance (tambour) and the roof, replacement of windows and doors and installation of LED lamps for common use areas of the building.

Project Characteristics and Results
Project sustainability
As a result of the project Mrgashen community will enhance its energy security through a set of locally adapted innovative low-carbon technologies providing sustainable energy services. Green energy sources and technologies are critical for maintaining environmental sustainability and quality of life in the face of increasing energy demand. Positive experience of saving and generating money by application of low carbon technological solutions will be widely shared among the community population. During the project it is planned to organize events dedicated to renewable energy, energy efficiency and relevant topics. The gained information will help the local population to understand the benefits of the solar systems and energy conservation.
Promoting Public Awareness of Global Environment
Information on upcoming meetings, discussions or trainings within the project activities targeted to raise awareness of the community members will be duly disseminated through announcements posted in the municipality, school, cultural center, etc. Moreover, the project results are planned to be covered through regional and mass media platforms and channels.
