On December 17, 2020 there will be organized a presentation of the International Energy Transparency Index 2020, which assesses the real state of information available in the sector diagnoses gaps and identifies energy “black boxes”.
2 years ago DiXi Group think tank team developed the Energy Transparency Index and for the first time assessed the information openness of the sector in Ukraine comprehensively. However, from the very beginning, the Index was conceived as a flexible and universal tool that can be used not only for Ukraine but also for a group of countries, such as the Eastern European region, Energy Community member states, Baltic-Black Sea cooperation and in a wider international format. That is why in 2020, together with the partners − World Experience for Georgia “WEG” (Georgia) and Community for advocacy and public policies WatchDog.MD (Moldova) − our team for the first time made an assessment for three countries in the region that are members of the Energy Community: Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia.
How experts assessed the overall progress in each of these countries, what critical problems exist in the sector and what steps should be done to overcome them – you can hear the answers on all these questions at the International Energy Transparency Index 2020 presentation, which will take place on December 17.
If you want to join the discussion, we would like to ask you to register by December, 16 (5 pm), at the latest. Link for the event will be sent to all registered participants by December 16, until 7 pm.
The event will be held in the framework of the ‘Energy Transparency Index – a powerful tool of strengthening transparency of the energy sector’ project, implemented by the NGO DiXi Group together with the World Experience for Georgia “WEG” (Georgia) and the Community for advocacy and public policies WatchDog.MD (Moldova).
