Sustainable Energy Pathways in the South Caucasus – Opportunities for Development and Political Choices

Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia, the three countries of the South Caucasus, face major challenges to making their energy sectors sustainable. Although all three are participants in the European Neighbourhood Policy and the Eastern Partnership of the EU, future EU integration perspectives and challenges differ substantially. For the Study on “Sustainable Energy Pathways in the South Caucasus” released by the South Caucasus office of the Heinrich Böll Foundation DIW in cooperation with national consultants assesses the energy policies of the three countries emphasising their institutional framework and their impact on economic, social and environmental development with respect to sustainability. The Study identifies the strategic priorities for sustainable development of the energy sector of the three countries and provides practical recommendations how to achieve more sustainabiliy in the energy sector’s development.
