On 11 May, Energy Community experts in close cooperation with 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 drafting amendments to the current Law on promotion of energy from renewable sources to transpose Renewables Directive 2018/2001 as adapted and adopted by the 2021 Energy Community Ministerial Council.
The transposition of Directive 2018/2001 into Georgian legislation will have a fundamental part to play in promoting the security of energy supply, sustainable energy at affordable prices, technological development and innovation as well as technological and industrial leadership. It will also provide environmental, social and health benefits to the citizens of Georgia.
