Electricity Market Review
The electricity sector is one of the milestones of the energy sector of Georgia. It is a sector in expansion. Electricity generation - relying mostly on Hydro Power Plants - has been increasing over the years, although not always at a rate sufficient to match demand increase, driven by rising econom
ic activity, vehicle electrification, and increased blockchain mining activities. Developed in 2017, the Electricity Market Review analyses the main trends and key events in Georgia's electricity market. It also monitors the consequences of all the changes in the electricity sector, including market liberalization and the introduction of incentive schemes for renewable energy.
