Europe and Eurasia: Black Sea Initiative

Regional Workshop on Renewable Investment and Joint Coordination Meeting of BSRI and BSTP

Date: February 2013
Location: Tbilisi, Georgia

With the support of the US Agency for International Development, Black Sea regulators convened to review and approve the preliminary draft of additions to the “Principles of Regulation to promote the development of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) in the Black Sea region” and discuss key related issues.

Participants exchanged applicable case studies and examples from the Black Sea countries, EU and the US Midwest region on the roles of regulators in promoting RES market development, regional cooperation and cross-border trade. In a separate meeting, regulators from the Black Sea Regulatory Initiative (BSRI) provided input to the Black Sea Regional Transmission Planning Project (BSTP) and on developing compatible grid code regulations to aid sustainable clean energy development in the Black Sea region and reviewed initial findings from the group’s optimum power flow (OPF) modeling analysis.
