Statistics

State of compliance

GeoStat has achieved significant progress over the last few years in bringing its practices closer to what is required by the acquis on statistics. The main remaining tasks are related to electricity price reporting as required by the Regulation. 
 

  • Regulation (EC) 1099/2008

    Regulation (EC) 1099/2008 on Energy Statistics

    The energy balance produced by GeoStat is in compliance with Annex B of Regulation (EC) 1099/2008 and five questionnaires were transmitted to and published by EUROSTAT.

    GeoStat conducted a survey of final energy use by the residential sector (i.e. space heating, space cooling, water heating, cooking, lighting and electrical appliances and other end-uses), with technical assistance provided by the Secretariat. The final results of the survey were integrated in the annual data collections, thus enabling GeoStat to compile and transmit the disaggregated data on the final energy consumption of households in the defined questionnaire.

    As to monthly statistics, Georgia collects and disseminates monthly JODI gas and oil data. Data on production, export, import and supply of electricity, solid fuels and natural gas is  transmitted to EUROSTAT in compliance with Annex C of Regulation (EC) 1099/2008. Currently, Georgia is the only Contracting Party reporting short-term monthly oil data to EUROSTAT.  

    Geostat introduced quality assurance procedures and prepares quality reports for different domains. The report on quality of transmitted energy data has been submitted to EUROSTAT. Its validation is in progress.

    The overall accomplishments as regards implementation of Regulation (EC) 1099/2008 and amendments thereof are notable and Georgia is very close to achieving full compliance with the acquis.

  • Regulation (EU) 2016/1952

    From 2018 onwards, Georgia has compiled information on the prices of natural gas and electricity charged to end-users, as required by Regulation (EU) 2016/1952.

    Currently, the prices of electricity and natural gas, charged to both household and non-household customers, broken down per consumption bands and taxation levels are transmitted to EUROSTAT. The components of end-user prices of natural gas and electricity components (energy and supply, network, taxes and levies)are also reported and transmitted to EUROSTAT. The reporting of price components has started with data for 2nd semester 2018.

    Georgia has implemented the obligations related to price statistics.
