  • Green Growth: How Georgia Could Benefit

    There are several potential drivers of green-energy growth. At ISET-PI we have asses the ones that are most relevant for the Georgian context.Green policies might stimulate growth in Georgia through various effects, depending on the sector they target. For example, monetizing emission reductions has a high potential for success and could be marketed to other countries as a sustainable solution to automotive emission. In summary, Read More
  • Can low electricity prices be a comparative advantage of Georgia? - Summary of findings -

    For resilient economic development in Georgia, the country should encourage exports of higher-value added goods. In this report, ISET-PI and GET have found that Georgia might be able to develop a comparative advantage when it comes to exporting higher-value energy-intensive products. According to projections of its electricity network operator, Georgia will develop excess capacities of low-cost electricity in the next decade. The policy challenge is Read More
  • Energy-intensive Production Potential in Georgia

    ISET- PI and GET have predicted the potential for Georgia to specialize in the production of energy-intensive goods such as: Aluminum (unwrought, bars and rods, foil), Zinc (Unwrought) and Fertilizer mixtures.Primarily, the analysis of Georgia’s current situation showed that there is no significant production in energy-intensive goods, except nitrogenous fertilizers. Georgia has no proven reserves of bauxite and zinc ore. However, the country does has Read More
  • Georgia’s potential in selected engineering goods

    ISET-PI analyzed the potential for Georgia to specialize in the production of several types of engineering goods: Insulated wire and cable; Pleasure and sport vessels; Cargo containers; Derricks, cranes, and straddle carriers. The analysis of the current situation in Georgia and on the world market revealed very limited current production in the engineering sector and showed that technology generally is not up-to-date.Past infrastructure in the Read More
  • Macroeconomic effects of the global oil price on Georgia

    Oil prices have endured a large and persistent decrease due to increased worldwide production and the weakness of global demand. Prices are soon expected to stabilize around USD 60/barrel. ISET-PI and GET have focused on the improved terms of trade that Georgia could potentially see due to its high share of energy imports compared to its GDP indicators. This dynamic could cause an indirect albeit Read More
