Ten-Year Transmission Network Development Plan is a time-phased program to strengthen the country’s infrastructure. The implementation of this program will solve the problems existing in the power transmission network and meet future challenges.
TYNDP presents the readiness of Georgia for integration into ENTSO-E ten-year development plan which is the step forward made towards our country’s energy system. The construction of infrastructure under this program will mainly contribute to our country’s economic development. It will increase the country’s export and transit potential and the opportunity to become the major energy transit hub.
”We need to create a safe and modern infrastructure, we must ensure the population and the business security with the non-stop, 24 year power supply. The project set by GSE and the Ministry of Energy is of key importance for each of us and for the development of the energy sector. We will manage to become Georgia energy independent country in near future,” – said Deputy Prime-Minister/ Minister of Energy Kakha Kaladze.
”Georgia’s electricity consumption is growing and we should follow up this process with connecting potential generation sources to the network. Today we presented our view on these issues with the ten-year network development plan of Georgia,”-said chairman of management board of GSE Sulkhan Zumburidze.
