Energy security of Georgia towards integration in the European Union [1.17 mb]
Zusammenfassung (Englisch)

Energy Security is usually defined as -reliable supplies at reasonable price-. Energy security is the milestone of the whole energy system of the country. The problem is that, achieving energy security is a hard task for the government. For such country as Georgia, which is a transit country, it is highly important to have a precisely defined energy security strategy, in order to overcome the political and economic problems related to energy. Moreover, Georgia has a strategic goal to integrate into the European Union. Therefore, Georgia has to fulfill the obligations taken during the past years. Based on literature review, case studies and interviews carried out with the government officials, the problems were set, solutions found and the conclusions drawn. In conclusion, it turned out that some areas should be more prioritized, the Directives/Regulations of the European Union should be implemented in the Georgian legislation and practically applied in order to secure the energy sector in the future. However, overcoming the problems which nowadays exist in the Georgian energy sector and integrating in the European internal energy market, means being close to the integration into the European Union.
