UNECE is implementing extrabudgetary project “Strengthening Georgia’s food and energy resilience.” The project is part of a Joint SDG Fund Development Emergency Modality – Response to the Global Crisis on Food, Energy, Finance to be implemented in Georgia. The objective of the project is enhanced capacity of small business to introduce energy efficiency measures in rural areas and improved knowledge of national stakeholders on energy efficient solutions for small businesses in rural areas.

Improving national capacity on renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies for small and medium enterprises and households in North Macedonia

UNECE is implementing extrabudgetary project “Improving national capacity on renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and households in North Macedonia”. This project is UNECE component of Green Finance Facility to improve air quality and combat climate change in North Macedonia project.  The project aims to improve national capacity on renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies for SMEs and households in North Macedonia

UN Development Account project “Global Initiative towards post-Covid-19 resurgence of the MSME sector”

UNECE is an implementing partner in the UN Development Account project “Global Initiative towards post-Covid-19 resurgence of the MSME sector” led by UNCTAD and UN ESCWA. The overall goal of the project is to strengthen the capacity and resilience of micro-, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in developing countries and economies in transition to mitigate the economic and social impact of the global COVID-19 crisis. In the framework of the project, the Sustainable Energy Division focuses on developing Guidelines and Best Practices for MSMEs to assure resiliency and progress towards a circular economy in sustainable resource management and critical raw material supply chain solutions and Guidelines and Best Practices for MSMEs in delivering energy efficient products and in providing renewable energy equipment. The reports will be used to develop an online training course and customize their findings for several pilot countries in the UNECE region.

COMPLETED PROJECTS

Enhancing national capacities to develop and implement energy efficiency standards for buildings in the UNECE region 

UNECE was implementing the extrabudgetary project “Enhancing National Capacities to Develop and Implement Energy Efficiency Standards for Buildings in the UNECE Region” (funded by the Russian Federation). It was implemented under the auspices of the Joint Task Force on Energy Efficiency Standards in Buildings. The project aimed to enhance capacity of the UNECE member States to develop and implement energy efficiency in buildings, with a focus on residential buildings.

Improving capacity of the Government of Ukraine to develop infrastructure for production and use of hydrogen to support green post-covid-19 recovery

UNECE was implementing project “Improving capacity of the Government of Ukraine to develop infrastructure for production and use of hydrogen to support green post-covid-19 recovery” (funded from the Regular Programme on Technical Cooperation (RPTC)). It was implemented jointly by the Sustainable Energy, Sustainable Transport, and Environment Divisions. Hydrogen is a renewable and clean source of energy that supports circular economy. Ukraine is experiencing an economic downturn as a consequence of the Covid-19 pandemic. Development of infrastructure to produce and use hydrogen in Ukraine will facilitate its economic recovery in an environmentally friendly manner, increase its energy security and efficiency, improve the economic climate and create new employment opportunities.
