The objective of the NAMA is to contribute to transformational change in the energy supply of rural areas, aiming for efficient use of biomass through the use and up-scaling of Solar Water Heaters (SWH), Fuel Efficient Wood Stoves (FEWS), Energy Efficient Insulation (EEI) Measures in rural households and public buildings and sustainable forest management.

Activities: (2016 - 2021)
A pilot project has been planned with the installation of SWH and FEWS and implementation of EEI measures in 11.500 households, supported with a financial mechanism and sustainable forest management in 6 rural areas of Georgia. An estimated 60,000 FEWS, SWH and EEI can be installed potentially until 2030.
