Case Summary

Georgia’s Ministry of Energy, with technical support from U.S. energy experts, is working to improve its national energy security by promoting investments in new hydropower plants and establishing an energy trading mechanism (ETM) through the implementation of the Georgia Electricity Market Model of 2015. The ETM provides the structural, technical, legal, contractual, and regulatory framework required to attract private investment and support regional electricity markets and trading.
