With the support of the US Agency for International Development, Kentucky and Ohio regulators hosted their colleagues from the Georgia National Energy and Water Regulatory Commission and Georgian State Electrosystem JSC (local TSO) to discuss wholesale and retail markets and tariffs, licensing, generation dispatch and transmission systems. Following the exchange, an IT Specialist from GNERC stayed for a week-long internship at the Kentucky Commission to learn about necessary software support for live streaming of Commission's public hearings as well as software and hardware for e-filing, docketing and complaint reporting systems.
