The EU4Energy Programme today launched a two-day interactive training in Tsinandali, Georgia on the main renewable energy support mechanisms. The training brings together energy experts from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine to enhance their knowledge in renewable energy support mechanisms as efficient policy tools for shifting towards a green generation.
Participants in the regional training will have an opportunity to discuss implementation practices and analyse the advantages and disadvantages of renewable energy support mechanisms, get acquainted with EU requirements for the implementation of Guarantees of Origin, and obtain a clear picture of how they are applied in practice.
The training, managed by the Council of European Energy Regulators (CEER), is organised in the framework of the ‘EU4Energy Programme Phase II – Promoting the Clean Energy Transition in the Eastern Partnership Countries’, which runs until December 2024 and aims to contribute to the development of sound legislative and regulatory frameworks for energy, to support the region’s transition to clean energy and the liberalisation of its energy markets.
The training programme will address new challenges and opportunities, such as the gradual embedding of digitalisation in all energy-relevant market segments, while promoting cost reflectivity, thus helping citizens of EaP countries to benefit from sustainable energy investments as well as increased regional market integration and intra-regional trade.
The EU4Energy initiative is funded by the European Union with a total budget of €8.5 million and is jointly implemented by CEER, the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the Energy Community Secretariat (EnCS).
