The event intended to discuss the results and achievements of the project and to raise awareness of the energy community in the country, as well as for the public. The participants discussed the benefits and impact of the project on Georgian consumers.

Alexandre Darras, Team Leader Connectivity, Energy, Environment and Climate Change, of the EU Delegation to Georgia noted that this project was a part of the large-scale support of the EU, and aimed to further modernize the Georgian energy sector.

The project launched in February of 2019, lasted for over 21 months and was funded by the EU.
