The Use of Solar Energy Applications in Sheep Breeding in Georgia

The main objective of this project, launched by "Sustainable Energy Center - Sun House", was the introduction of solar energy usage in sheep breeding in Georgia through capacity-building and pilot implementation. In conjunction with the demonstration of solar energy technologies in a designated sheep-breeding farm (e.g. solar battery charging system, portable solar cooking and water heating system), capacity-building within local SMEs and awareness-raising amongst the shepherds were key issues. The results of the project included an outline of a sustainable financial scheme, which was presented to interested stakeholders and potential investors.
