When: 1996

Where: Georgia

What: Strengthening Institutional Capacities

We organized with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) a seminar on “Regulation, Institutional Framework and Tariffs in the Electricity Sector”, which was held in Tbilisi, Georgia, on February 22-23, 1996. The purpose of the seminar was to facilitate dialogue and discussion on the most important challenges and opportunities that arise when developing national energy policies, particularly when developing a national regulatory framework and tariffs. Countries in the region were at the time transitioning to a free market economy and as a result, were restructuring their energy sectors.

GSEP experts presented the history of electricity regulation in their nations, and the regulatory situations and tariff structures in France, Canada and USA. A panel discussion was held on the challenges and opportunities that Georgia was facing at that time, transitioning to a free market economy.

Participants in the seminar were Georgian, Armenian and Azeri high-ranking authorities and decision-makers, as well as specialists and high-level experts from member companies. All participants were engaged directly or indirectly in the process of privatisation, in determining energy development policies, and directing foreign investments. The seminar was greatly appreciated and deemed a success.
