President of Georgia joins IEA’s energy efficiency commission

The President of Georgia has joined the Global Commission on Emergency Promotion of Energy Efficiency.

Salome Zourabichvili is the 20th member of the commission, which was set up by the International Energy Agency. The Honorable Chairman of the Global Energy Efficiency Emergency Commission is the Prime Minister of Ireland Leo Varadkar .

The new composition of the Commission brings together top government officials, chief executives and leaders of the largest businesses in the field of energy.

Several important political and business leaders have already agreed to join to advance progress on energy efficiency, which the IEA views as the very first fuel of a sustainable global energy system.

The next year's action policy sets out precise recommendations that various countries around the world will use to accelerate energy efficiency. 
"It is a great honor for Georgian President Salome Zourabichvili to take part in this important initiative," said Fati Birol , head of the International Energy Agency .

The Global Commission for Emergency Promotion is a high-level commission investigating the accelerating development of energy efficiency through new and powerful actions.

Over 400 energy efficiency leaders from more than 50 countries attended the IEA’s Global Conference on Energy Efficiency in Dublin, which was the its fourth annual global conference on the subject.

The gathering aimed to identify how to unlock the vast potential of energy efficiency, bringing a wide range of important benefits, from greenhouse gas emissions reduction, to improved energy security and supporting the growth of economies while delivering environmental and social benefits.
