State of compliance

Georgia has not transposed Regulation (EU) 347/2013, as adapted and adopted by the Energy Community, and thus fails to meet the general transposition deadline set by the Regulation. The Contracting Party also failed to appoint a national competent authority as required under the Regulation by 30 June 2017. It thus breaches the Energy Community infrastructure acquis.
 

  • National Competent Authority

    National Competent Authority

    The Energy Community Secretariat is not aware of any decision taken on the designation of the competent authority. Therefore, Georgia is not compliant with Regulation (EU) 347/2013.

  • Manual of procedures

    Manual of procedures

    The manual of procedures, as defined by Regulation (EU) 347/2013 as adapted and adopted by the Energy Community, is yet to be drafted.

  • Set of indicators and corresponding reference values

    Set of indicators and corresponding reference values

    According to Article 11.2, the national regulatory authorities cooperating in the framework of the Regulatory Board shall establish and make publicly available, by 30 June 2018, a set of indicators and corresponding reference values for the comparison of unit investment costs for comparable projects of the infrastructure categories included in Annex 1 and 2 of Regulation (EU) 347/2013.

    In order to assist all Contracting Parties, the Secretariat coordinated the data collection and has prepared a report containing a set of indicators and corresponding reference values for the comparison of unit investment costs in the Energy Community. National regulatory authority did not publish yet the available set of indicators and corresponding reference values as requested by the Regulation 347/2013.

  • Methodology and the criteria used to evaluate investment with the higher risks

    Methodology and the criteria used to evaluate investment with the higher risks

    According to Article 13.6, each national regulatory authority should publish its methodology and the criteria used to evaluate investments in electricity and gas infrastructure projects and the higher risks incurred by them by 31 December 2017.

    The Georgian national regulatory authority has drafted but not yet published its methodology and evaluation criteria. Hence, Georgia is not yet compliant with Article 13.6 of Regulation (EU) 347/2013 as adopted by the Energy Community Ministerial Council.
