Flag of Georgia


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 2016
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.

Black Sea Transmission Planning
Sep 2010 – Sep 2016
U.S. Energy Association (USEA)
This project analyzes the existing high voltage networks from a regional perspective to develop technical rules, guidelines, and network infrastructure assessments to accelerate integration of clean and innovative energy technologies.

Power and Gas Infrastructure Program (PGIP)
May 2010 – Dec 2015
Government of Georgia (GOG)
PGIP assists the Government of Georgia to undertake strategic interventions in gas and power infrastructure aimed at enhancing the energy security of the country. Ongoing projects support Georgia’s power transmission company to upgrade control and protection switchgear equipment in substations.

Substation Protection and Control Equipment 

May 2014 – Dec 2015
Georgian State Electrosystem (GSE)
In order to support the strengthening of Georgia’s power infrastructure, USAID procured substations and stringing equipment for GSE.
