Description

The overall objective of the project is to contribute to the progress of the INOGATE Partner Countries in the achievement of the Baku Initiative and the Eastern Partnership objectives. The programme would support a reduction in their dependency on fossil fuels and imports, improvement of the security of their energy supply, and climate change overall mitigation. The INOGATE Programme (which derives its name from Interstate Oil and Gas Transportation to Europe) supports international cooperation between the European Union, the littoral states of the Black & Caspian Seas and their neighbouring countries.

The project will ensure that assistance in support of the Baku Initiative/Eastern Partnership as well as the Energy Community objectives is more effective, coherent, sustainable and aligned with partner countries' objectives and will assist the beneficiary countries strengthen their energy institutional governance in relation to sustainable energy, in particular by focussing on institutional capacity. At the same time, assistance will be provided for the improvement of the business climate for energy efficiency and renewable energy investments and improvement of energy economic planning through enhanced use and harmonisation of energy statistics in line with European standards. Finally, the project aims to enhance convergence of Gas and Electricity Markets on the basis of EU internal energy market principles, and to increase efficiency of the gas and electricity supply infrastructures.

To achieve this, the project is being executed as four concurrent components, each addressing a technical, policy or capacity-building issue:

Component A: Coordination and Communication of the INOGATE Programme
Component B: Electricity and Gas sectors
Component C: Sustainable Energy
Component D: Support to statistical cooperation

Component A deals with the operation of the INOGATE Technical Secretariat in Kiev and Tbilisi, all issues of coordinating the implementation of the project with the partner countries and in communicating the project and its results with the stakeholders. Component A also deals with the horizontal issues of investments and improving the business climate in the partner countries. Another office was established in Central Asia (Uzbekistan), which operated during the first two years of the project.

Components B, C, and D will work on a two-pronged approach.

  • The Ad-Hoc Expert Facility (AHEF) which is an on-demand technical assistance provision on the request of the beneficiaries of the partner countries.  The issues that can be addressed under AHEF involve legislative, regulatory, technical, managerial and awareness raising.
  • Capacity building involves a wide range of capacity building programme including training, seminar, workshops, peer reviews and study tours.

The project covers the wide range of areas from legislation, regulations, technical issues, management, consumer protection and international cooperation aspects of the gas and electricity, renewable and energy efficiency sub-sectors. Therefore the beneficiaries and stakeholders for the project include the following:

  • Ministries of Energy, of Natural Resources, of Industry and New Technologies

  • National regulators
  • Ministry in charge of Finance  
  • National and Regional Standardization Bodies
  • National Statistical Institutes (NSI) in each Partner Country
  • Energy Agencies, Energy Services Companies, Audit Centers
  • National Construction Authorities – a new important stakeholder for national design and construction codes of practice harmonization
