Energy Community Secretariat discusses Georgia’s energy and climate reforms

Energy Community Secretariat discussed Georgia’s ongoing work on the National Energy and Climate Plan with the country’s key government and energy sector stakeholders.

“We fully support Georgia in its strife for decarbonisation and greater resilience of the energy sector. Today, this is more important than ever. A robust and ambitious strategy will also help create the investor confidence needed for the energy transition. The Secretariat’s support will be very hands-on”, the Director of Energy Community Secretariat, Artur Lorkowski told Levan Davitashvili, the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Economy and Sustainable Development of Georgia.

At a meeting with the Deputy Prime Minister, Georgia’s energy regulator GNERC, the transmission system operators for electricity (GSE) and gas (GGTC), the role of organised markets and unbundling of transmission system operators were underlined.

“We appreciate the Government’s commitment to resolve all open issues preventing the unbundling of GSE and GGTC still in the first half of this year and count on the establishment of organised electricity and gas markets by 1 September 2022”, Director Lorkowski emphasised.

The press statement of the Energy Community Secretariat informs that Matters discussed with the Deputy Minister for Environmental Protection and Agriculture of Georgia, Nino Tandilashvili covered the prospects of a carbon tax and intensified dialogue with the public concerned about energy infrastructure projects.
