The energy sector is crucial to the economic development and security of the country. Georgia is in the process of implementing the EU’s third energy package and several new legislative changes have been made in the sector as well. PMCG is keenly involved in reforms related to the development of competitive energy markets, cross-border electricity trading, regional integration and collaboration, elaboration of an energy development strategy, as well as institutional development and capacity building.
We support investments in renewable energy sources such as hydro, solar, and wind. Not only do we devise different kinds of studies/projects in renewables but our consultants also assist companies in fundraising for their energy projects.
Elsewhere, cybersecurity has become an important challenge in the modern world. For countries in particular, defending critical infrastructure (including energy infrastructure) from cyber-attacks has for some time now been a matter of national security. Pertinently, we have formidable team working on cybersecurity issues.
Under the energy sector, PMCG covers the following areas:
- Competitive energy markets and cross-border energy trading;
- Energy security and strategic planning;
- Energy supply and demand analyses;
- Energy efficiency;
- Regulatory impact assessments;
- Investment advisory services for renewables; and
