Kutaisi is Ready to Make 100% Switch to Renewable Energy by 2050

Kutaisi is the first city within the Caucasus that, during the global mobilization day “Act for Climate”, pledged its readiness to make a 100% switch to renewable energy by 2050. A respective memorandum will be finalized between the international organization 350.org and the mayor of Kutaisi Giorgi Chighvaria, in the near future.

This means that Kutaisi will reduce energy consumption, will reject fossil fuels, and gradually will shift to using renewable energy resources. “Kutaisi has a huge potential to become a flagship city for renewable energy not only in Georgia, but across the whole region. Rational use of the resources not only saves money but also creates a foundation for the development of a clean and green environment.
Kutaisi is joining the global movement and will fulfill its role by conducting important activities for the world” – stated Nino Tvaltvadze, vice-mayor of Kutaisi.
