The Energy Community Secretariat has been entrusted to manage one of the components in the EU4Energy Programme Phase II between 2020 and 2024. Throughout the action, the Secretariat will work with stakeholders in Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine in order to assist them with the drafting, transposition and implementation of energy reforms, including the Clean Energy for all Europeans Package. The targeted sectors are electricity, gas (including hydrogen), energy efficiency and renewable energy. In order to better measure policy reforms, the Secretariat will develop and use additional implementation indicators.
The Project will also facilitate knowledge transfer to the relevant public authorities via various capacity building activities. The Secretariat has launched Phase II by consulting the planned activities with the beneficiaries.
* The EU4Energy Initiative covers all EU support to improve energy supply, security and connectivity, as well as to promote energy efficiency and the use of renewables in the Eastern Partner countries Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. It does this by financing projects and programmes that help to reform energy markets and to reduce national energy dependence and consumption. Over the longer term, this makes energy supply more reliable, transparent and affordable, thus reducing energy poverty and energy bills for both citizens and the private sector.
