The first Renewable Energy Investment Conference takes place today in Tbilisi, Georgia.
The three-day event – co-funded by the European Union – brings together 200 energy regulators and high-level policymakers to find ways forward to accelerate the energy transition and catalyse investments in renewable energy projects in Europe, Eastern Partnership countries and beyond.
The participants will identify the key elements to secure a positive investment climate. Actions proposed to attract significant financial resources will include creating new technology frameworks and enhancing capacity-building among different state and private actors.
The event is organised by the Council of European Energy Regulators (CEER) on behalf of the European Commission’s EU4Energy Programme – “Promoting the Clean Energy Transition in the Eastern Partnership Countries”, the Energy Regulators Regional Association (ERRA) and the Georgian National Energy and Water Supply Regulatory Commission (GNERC).
The Conference will also celebrate 25 years of independent regulation in Georgia since the foundation in 1997 of the Georgian National Energy and Water Supply Regulatory Commission.
