Representatives of the Eastern partner countries Armenia, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine met in Kyiv on 10 April to discuss the preliminary results of the assessment of energy infrastructure priority investment opportunities in the region. The meeting was organised by the Energy Community Secretariat under the EU4Energy Programme.
The projects were assessed based on their contribution to market integration and price convergence; security of gas supply; contribution to enhanced competition; and sustainability, including carbon dioxide savings.
Five projects were assessed in the electricity sector (three transmission lines under the Black Sea linking Georgia with EU Member States and two sections of a transmission line connecting Belarus and Ukraine) and two in the gas sector (the White Stream gas pipeline and bi-directional operation of two interconnection points on the Ukrainian-Belarus border).
Based on the assessment results, an indicative list of energy infrastructure priority investments (PEPIs) will be confirmed. The Energy Community Secretariat will assist in presenting these projects to International Financial Institutions.
