In July 2020, Georgian power plants generated 1,010 mln. kWh of electricity. This represents a 4.3% decrease in total generation, compared to the previous year (July 2019, the total generation was 1,055 mln. kWh). The decrease in generation on a yearly basis comes from the decrease of 8.4% in hydro power generation and more than 20% decrease in wind power generation, partially compensated by an increase in thermal power generation. Interestingly, on a yearly basis, thermal power generation increased more than 14 times compared to July 2019.

On a monthly basis, generation increased by 1.1% (in June 2020, total generation was 999 mln. kWh). The monthly increase in total generation was the result of the increase in thermal power generation and wind power generation more than offsetting the decrease of 3.8% in hydro power generation.

In June 2020, Georgian power plants generated 999 mln. kWh of electricity. This represents a 16.6% decrease in total generation, compared to the previous year (June 2019, the total generation was 1,198 mln. kWh). The decrease in generation on a yearly basis comes from the decrease of 16% in hydro power generation and more than seven-fold decrease in thermal power generation offsetting an increase in wind power generation (+21% compared to June 2019), which remains however below 1% of total generation.

In May 2020, Georgian power plants generated 986 mln. kWh of electricity. This represents a 15% decrease in total generation, compared to the previous year (May 2019, the total generation was 1,156 mln. kWh). The decrease in generation on a yearly basis comes from the decrease of 16% in hydropower generation more than offsetting an increase in thermal and wind power generation, high in percentage terms (+34% and + 500%, respectively) but low in absolute terms.

On a monthly basis, generation increased by 4% (in April 2020, total generation was 944 mln. kWh) (Figure 1). The monthly increase in total generation was the result of the increase of 23% in hydro, that offset 3% and 91% decrease in wind and thermal power generation, respectively.
