Building on previous, successful USAID including HIPP support to this sector, HPEP continue to support promotion of private investment in small and medium-sized hydropower by focusing on the enabling environment for competitive electricity trading domestically and cross border, to develop a sound national energy policy and strategy of Georgia, and a CBA model for Enguri watershed area.
The CBA model development will be supported by the establishment of a working group of NGOs and other stakeholders to help the Government of Georgia quantify environmental and socio-economic factors into new hydropower project developments for Enguri watershed area. The costs and benefits of hydropower project development in the Enguri watershed, including prospective development of planned HPPs to establish a template for other HPP development projects within the different watersheds of Georgia.

The main objective of the study is:
To develop a Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA) Model of watershed-based hydropower development in the Enguri watershed area, including assessment of the environmental and social costs. The CBA Model is aimed to compare the total costs and benefits accrued from the social and environmental services provided by the watershed for a baseline scenario (existing/current use) compared to the scenario in which hydropower facilities are installed.
 

 

Reinforcing cooperation with ENP countries on bridging the gap between energy research and energy innovation

At 1st of October 2013 “Energy Efficiency Center Georgia” in cooperation with 10 institutions from 7 ENP - EU (Armenia, Austria, Belarus, Georgia, Germany, Hungary, Moldova) countries started new 36 month project (ENER2I (ENErgy Research to Innovation): Reinforcing cooperation with ENP countries on bridging the gap between energy research and energy innovation). The ENER2I project focuses on the need to find innovative and sustainable solutions to these challenges, directly addressing the gap between new energy research and European industry. Existing research results are not being sufficiently transferred into innovative processes and products, and in many countries cooperation among research institutes, universities, and the business sector are at an early stage of development. In order to bridge this gap and accelerate innovation performance, ENER2I will improve knowledge transfer and innovation support in the field of renewable energies and energy efficiency through a comprehensive trans-national cooperation programme. We propose to stimulate the linkages between research and innovation with effective knowledge transfer methods in the ENP countries Armenia, Belarus, Georgia and Moldova, and establish sustainable cooperation between research and innovation actors across EU and ENP countries with support from EU partners from Austria, Germany, Hungary. With a strong consortium of research organizations in the energy and innovation fields, innovation funding agencies, service providers, and SME support agencies, and a mix of proposed activities, including brokerage events and training workshops in each of the ENP partner countries, twinning schemes, and an innovation voucher scheme, we will address the difficult challenge of strengthening cooperation between research and business actors in EE/RES, while at the same time facilitating cooperation between EU and ENP actors.
