Energy

Georgia has implemented reforms in the energy sector resulting in increased power supplies nationwide. Nonetheless, energy services still do not meet the country’s needs. USAID projects help facilitate investment to, improve natural gas transmission infrastructure to increase the availability of gas for households and key economic development zones, and improve electrical power transmission through constructing new power lines, while promoting increased energy efficiency.

Current programs:

Georgian National Energy and Water Regulatory Commission (GNERC) Partnership Program
Sept 2010– Sept 2018
National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissions (NARUC)

This project fosters the exchange of experience and information between the U.S. and the Georgian National Energy and Water Supply Regulatory Commission. The project improves regulatory practices, strengthens the regulatory authority, supports the transition toward European-oriented market mechanisms, and incentivizes the utilities to improve service to customers.
