With its energy saving percentage, Armenia is ahead of several countries in the Energy Community, as CEO of Foundation To Save Energy Astghine Pasoyan said at 'Armenia: Beacon for Expansion of Sustainable Energy' international conference. 'Armenia has a status of an observer in the Energy Community, nevertheless, it doesn't hinder Armenia to be ahead of many countries in the Energy Community. The representatives of 7 countries are taking part in this convention to see what the secret of Armenia comprises. By 2030 these countries shall reach 30% of energy saving, while Armenia shall have 37% of energy saving by 2020 as we already have a national action plan of energy saving. As a matter of fact, as a result of certain projects and efforts we recorded 8.6% of primary energy consumption from 2010 to 2014. Afterwards, we have adopted the second action plan of energy saving, our target is around 37-38% of energy efficiency by 2020,' Astghine Pasoyan said.
The Energy Community is an international organisation which brings together the European Union and its neighbours to create an integrated pan-European energy market. The organisation was founded by the Treaty establishing the Energy Community signed in October 2005 in Athens, Greece, in force since July 2006. The key objective of the Energy Community is to extend the EU internal energy market rules and principles to countries in South East Europe, the Black Sea region and beyond on the basis of a legally binding framework.
