Georgia twinning III: Development of Incentive Based Regulation for Service Quality and Regulatory Strategy to Support Roll-out of Smart Metering

Executive Summary

E-Control, together with junior partner CRE from France and RAE from Greece with support from German BNetzA and Lithuanian NCC, was awarded the implementation of this project end of 2018. Implementation started on February 1, 2019 when the RTA arrived in Georgia.

The purpose of this Twinning Project is to develop the institutional framework for the implementation of regulation of Georgia’s energy market in line with the European Union acquis and to strengthen the capabilities of the Georgian National Energy and Water Supply Regulatory Commission (GNERC) as the independent national regulatory authority through the development of tools and mechanisms based on the best European Union practice with regard to designing incentive-based regulation for service quality and developing regulatory strategy to support roll-out of smart metering.
