Energy policy training for journalists

15 May 2013

A training session for journalists on how to cover topics related to energy efficiency and energy policy was held at the EU Centre in Yerevan on 22 April 2013.
The aim of the training session, which was attended by representatives from Armenian mass media and media experts, was to inform journalists about current issues surrounding energy efficiency in buildings, as well as energy saving policy. The session also included a
presentation on the current situation of energy efficiency in the Armenian construction sector.
Participating journalists had the opportunity to pose questions and have discussions on energy use. The training session was organised within the framework of the EU-funded “Energy Saving Initiative in the Building Sector (ESIB)” project, part of the Interstate Oil and Gas Transport to Europe (INOGATE) programme, of which Armenia is a member state. ESIB is dedicated to the promotion of Energy Efficiency in the partner countries of INOGATE.

INOGATE supports energy policy cooperation between the European Union and INOGATE Partner Countries. ESIB will be implemented in partner countries until January 2014.

The ESIB project was launched in 1992 to support the development of energy cooperation between the European Union, coastal states of the Black and Caspian Seas, and other neighbouring countries. The cooperation framework covers oil, gas, electricity, renewable energy, and energy efficiency.
