Forum on Renewable Energy

Date: September 2012

With the support of the US Agency for International Development, NARUC organized a forum on renewable energy sources (RES) that brought together the Georgia Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources, Georgian State Electrosystem (GSE), Electricity System Commercial Operator (ESCO) and the Georgia National Energy and Water Regulatory Commission. NARUC applied the working group approach with parallel sessions on renewables and tariffs/quality of service, with particular emphasis on cross-border trade of electricity from RES, investment in the RES sector, market and regulatory frameworks, net-metering and green certificates.
