On November 28, ISET hosted a seminar delivered by two experts working for E-control Austria - Eszter Suele (Resident Twinning Advisor) and Leo Kammerdiener (Senior Tariff and Regulatory Expert). E-control Austria is collaborating with the Georgian National Energy and Water Supply Regulatory Commission (GNERC) under a “Twinning Project” to improve the Georgian electricity regulation that promotes long-term investments and helps establish methods of tariff calculation in line with European Union standards and best practices, namely incentive-based tariff regulations.

Professor Einar Hope from the Norwegian School of Economics (NHH) is a leading Nordic authority on energy market design and regulation. In 1995-1999, he took a break from academic activities and served as director of the Norwegian Competition Authority.

This year’s visit to Georgia (and ISET) was the second one for Professor Hope in as many years. In addition to advising ISET students, Professor Hope used his ten-day stay in Tbilisi in order to deliver a public seminar “THE POTENTIAL OF GEORGIA’S ELECTRICITY SECTOR IN AN INTEGRATED REGIONAL POWER MARKET”.
