PMCG has joined the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) project supporting the development of the energy planning study for Georgia. PMCG’s representative is participating in a one month training program in Model for Energy Supply System Alternatives and their General Environmental impacts (MASSAGE) which is held at the head office of the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna, Austria. MASSAGE model is designed to set up optimization models of energy supply systems to assess capacity expansion and energy production policies to formulate optimal energy supply strategy for particular countries.
PMCG is participating in this program together with the National Statistics Office of Georgia and Ministry of Energy and Natural Recourses of Georgia. All these institutions, including PMCG, are members of the state Task Force at the Ministry of Environment Protection and Natural Resources of Georgia which is working on the project Supporting the Development of a National Infrastructure for the potential application of nuclear energy in Georgia.
