On 17 February, Energy Community experts in close cooperation with the EU Delegation to Georgia, the Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development of Georgia (MoESD), the Georgian National Energy and Water Supply Regulatory Commission (GNERC), the electricity transmission system operator - JSC Georgian State Electrosystem (GSE) and the Electricity Market Operator (ESCO) kicked off EU4Energy technical assistance aimed at supporting Georgia in putting in place effective security of supply rules in the electricity sector in order to prevent, prepare for and mitigate a supply crisis and thus ensure security of supply for citizens and industry.

The Energy Community Secretariat will support the Georgian authorities in preparing the so-called Risk Preparedness Plan for the country’s electricity sector in line with the new Risk Preparedness Regulation (EU) 2019/941, as adapted and adopted by the Ministerial Council last year. This Plan will take into account the specific characteristics of the Georgian power system.

The assistance builds on new Security of Electricity Supply Rules initially developed with EU4Energy support and approved by GNERC in December 2020. These Rules already anticipated the adoption of the Risk Preparedness Regulation and are partially aligned with the new requirements.
