The Director of the Energy Community Secretariat, Mr Janez Kopač, met with the Minister for Energy of Georgia, Mr Kakha Kaladze, on 27 February in Tbilisi. The officials discussed the country’s energy reforms, Georgia’s accession to the Energy Community and its adoption of the Energy Law.
The draft Energy Law aims at implementing the EU’s Third Energy Package in the electricity and gas sectors. It should be adopted this year in order to be implemented by the end of 2018. The draft document is currently in inter-service consultation.
The ratification of Georgia’s accession agreement by the Georgian Parliament is expected in spring 2017.
