EU4Energy launches discussions on electricity market reform in Georgia

November 9, 2017

On 9-10 November, the Georgian capital Tbilisi is hosting its first high-level policy discussions on the electricity market to discuss the challenges and perspectives of the country’s electricity sector reforms.

Focusing in particular on the draft Energy Law, the meeting is bringing together key stakeholders, including government and regulatory authorities, members of parliament, representatives of NGOs, civil society, electricity producers and suppliers. The event has been organised with the support of the EU4Energy Governance Project, implemented by the Energy Community Secretariat.

“By joining the Energy Community Treaty, Georgia has committed to adopting EU laws and principles which will provide Georgians with more environmentally friendly, stable and secure energy,” said Ambassador Janos Herman, Head of the EU Delegation to Georgia.

“The draft Energy Law discussed today is a big step in this direction and we are confident that the Government will continue working on it as a priority. Meanwhile, the EU is ready to step up support for Georgia in this process.”

The EU4Energy initiative focuses on the six Eastern Partner countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine), as well as the five states of Central Asia (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan). It works to improve energy supply, security and connectivity, as well as to promote energy efficiency and the use of renewables in the region.
