Energy Talks for Businesses: Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency in Armenia
The EU Energy Days was concluded by the “Energy Talks for Businesses: Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency in Armenia”, organised jointly by the European Business Association and the Support to SME Development in Armenia (SMEDA) Project. The forum was aiming at raising the awareness on the importance of energy efficiency and renewable energies for small and medium sized enterprises and presenting the international best practices that could benefit the Armenian economy.
Ms. Eva Naeher, team leader of SMEDA, mentioned in her welcome remarks that Armenia has a great potential for renewable energy and technology. SMEDA is happy to collaborate in raising the awareness of the alternative energy sources and encouraging businesses to use more efficient and saving solutions. As to Ms. Diana Sarumova, Executive Director of EBA, Armenia’s private sector is not well informed about advantages offered by renewable energy systems and the talks provide a good opportunity to improve the situation.
Mr. Hayk Harutyunyan, Deputy Minister of Energy and Natural Resources presented the opportunities for Armenia in the renewable energy sector. He mentioned that businesses simply cannot afford not using the energy saving solutions anymore; it should become a must for them. The discussions were followed by presentations from EU-funded projects, local and international experts, a private bank representative to explain the advantages of renewable energy systems and how energy efficiency could benefit the businesses, agricultural sector and individuals.
