Action plans, reports and statements

Georgia

Day of Accession
1 July 2017
Status
Contracting Party

As a Contracting Party to the Energy Community Treaty, Georgia has the obligation to implement the energy acquis in force. Parallel to the adoption of secondary legislation, the implementation of the acquis gives rise to diverse reporting obligations.

Particularly the implementation of the renewable energy and energy efficiency acquis is based on comprehensive, multi-annual action plans. As a first step, the Parties draft and adopt the action plans that set the steps for achieving the negotiated targets. They are subsequently obliged to report about the progress achieved in the form of regular progress reports.

Starting in 2019, Georgia will also have a reporting obligation pursuant Annex VIII.B of the Large Combustion Plan Directive 2001/80/EC as amended by Decision 2013/05/MC-EnC.

As a newcomer to the Energy Community having acceded only in 2017, some of Georgia's deadlines still lie ahead. This page displays the reports and action plans submitted by Georgia to the Secretariat so far.

  • National Energy Efficiency Action Plans

    National Energy Efficiency Action Plans

    Incorporated into the acquis in October 2015, the Energy Efficiency Directive 2012/27/EU mandates the Parties to report and evaluate a set of measures that contribute to the 2018 national target for final energy savings. Building on Georgia's Accession Protocol, the Secretary recommended Georgia to submit its NEEAP by 31 December 2019 the latest. Whist Georgia adopted the NEEAP w on 23 December 2019, the non-official English translation was submitted the Secretariat in August 2020.

  • Progress reports

    Progress reports

    Article 24(1) of  Directive 2012/27/EU lays down the Contracting Parties' reporting obligations on energy efficiency. Pursuant to Georgia's Accession Protocol, 30 June each year as of 2020 marks the due date for Georgia for submitting the data on energy efficiency targets, indicators, consumption trends and key Energy Efficiency Directive implementing measures.

  • Statements

    Security of supply statements

    According to Article 29 of the Treaty, the Contracting Parties are to adopt Security of Supply Statements starting one year after the entry into force. As Georgia signed the Accession Protocol in 2017, the first statement was set to be submitted latest by 31 December 2018.

    The statements are to describe in particular the diversity of supply, technological security, and geographic origin of imported fuels. The Parties have the obligation to update the statements and notify the Secretariat every two years.

    Georgia submitted the Secretariat its first statement on gas in August 2021.

  • Emission reports from large combustion plants

    Emission reports from large combustion plants

    Georgia reports its data on Large Combustion Plants (LCPs) to European Environment Agency (EEA) under the Energy Community Treaty. This reporting is conducted annually by filling out an excel sheet that is then posted in the EEA Central Data Repository. The EEA maintains a separate Energy Community database, which contains plant-by-plant data. 

    2018 data marks the beginning of the LCP data reporting. The data include rated thermal input, annual energy input and emissions of SO2, NOX and dust. In addition, information on derogations under the provisions of the agreed legislation under the Treaty is provided. For the 2018 and 2019 reporting, Georgia submitted data on four plants. Starting 2020, its reporting covers all five LCPs in Georgia.

  • Nationally determined contributions

    Nationally determined contributions

    Adopted by 196 parties at COP 21, the Paris Agreement is a legally binding international treaty on climate change. It works on a 5-year cycle of increasingly ambitious climate action carried out by countries. Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) summarise countries’ plans to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions under the Paris Agreement. All Contracting Parties, with the exception of Kosovo*, ratified the Agreement and submitted their initial NDCs to the UNFCCC. 

    The Agreement calls the parties to submit new or updated NDCs every five years. NDC2s include more ambitious targets than the NDC1s and encompass all emission sectors and GHGs other than carbon dioxide. Beyond mitigation, the majority of NDC2s, also focus on adaptation, financial support and gender sensitivity. The actions contained in the NDC2 should pave the way towards meeting the political pledges under the 2020 Sofia Declaration to work towards the 2050 target of a carbon-neutral continent together with the European Union. The ambition level and targets of the NDC2s should be harmonized with those reflected in the NECPs.

    Georgia NDC2 was submitted to the UNFCCC in April 2021. It includes an economy-wide target and sections on mitigation, adaptation, gender. It sets an unconditional target of 35% below 1990 level of its total domestic GHG emissions by 2030, and a target of 50 - 57% reduction of its total GHG emissions by 2030 compared to 1990, conditional on international support.
