The document was initialled on the basis of the implementation of the agreement between the Governments of Azerbaijan, Georgia, Romania and Hungary on the Strategic Partnership in Green Energy Development and Transport – Green Energy Corridor Project.

The joint venture company, whose establishment has been agreed, would ensure the implementation of the Green Energy Corridor project in accordance with the agreement between the four countries.

The MoU signed in Bucharest lays the foundations for the general framework of understanding of the four relevant parties on the initiation of the procedures for the establishment of the joint venture company, subject to the prior statutory agreements of each company.

The Romanian Transmission System Operator, designated by the Romanian Government as the relevant party in this project, is working closely with the other relevant parties in the partner states to achieve the objective of this highly complex project, i.e. the assessment of the potential for clean energy production and exchanges in the Caucasus/Europe area and the design of the related infrastructure, considering technical, economic, and regulatory aspects.
