Today, the Secretariat launched its second EU4Energy Governance Project newsletter. The issue covers the second half of 2018 and the many positive changes EU4Energy Governance has helped introduce to the energy legislation and markets of Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. In this period, new assistance was launched in Ukraine for the transposition of the regulation aimed at facilitating investments in energy infrastructure projects.
The newsletter also puts spotlight on High-level Policy Talks, organised in Georgia and Ukraine in this period, which were instrumental in gaining wider public awareness and acceptance of the reforms in progress.
Finally, this issue features the first-ever blog post, which introduces the work under EU4Energy Governance through the eyes of citizens and provides a refreshing new take on how the EU4Energy Governance project will ultimately benefit citizens.
* The EU4Energy Initiative covers all EU support to improve energy supply, security and connectivity, as well as to promote energy efficiency and the use of renewables in the Eastern Partner countries Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. It does this by financing projects and programmes that help to reform energy markets and to reduce national energy dependence and consumption. Over the longer term, this makes energy supply more reliable, transparent and affordable, thus reducing energy poverty and energy bills for both citizens and the private sector.
