In 2019, Georgian power plants generated 11,865 mln. kWh of electricity. This represents a 2% decrease in total generation, compared to the previous year (in 2018, total generation was 12,149 mln. kWh) (Figure 1). The decrease in generation on a yearly basis comes from decrease in hydropower (-10%), more than offsetting the increase in thermal (+34%) and wind power generation (+0.5%).

Among the different sources of electricity, hydropower remained dominant, despite its decline in absolute and relative terms. Specifically, in 2019, hydropower (HPP) generation amounted to 8,940 mln. kWh (75% of total – used to be above 80%); wind power (WPP) generation was 85 mln. kWh (1% of total), and thermal power (TPP) generation was 2,840 mln. kWh (24% of total) (Figure 2).

In December 2019, Georgian power plants generated 1,012 mln. kWh of electricity. This represents a 3% increase in total generation, compared to the previous year (in December 2018, the total generation was 986 mln. kWh). The increase in generation on a yearly basis comes from the increase of 67% in thermal and 5% in wind power generation, more than offsetting the decrease in hydro power generation (-23%).

On a monthly basis, generation increased by 11% (in November 2019, total generation was 913 mln. kWh). The monthly increase in total generation was the result of an increase in electricity produced by thermal power plants (+14% with respect to November 2019) and hydro power plants (+8% with respect to November 2019) more than offsetting the decrease in wind power generation (-13% compared to November 2019).

In November 2019, Georgian power plants generated 913 mln. kWh of electricity. This represents a 1% increase in total generation, compared to the previous year (in November 2018, the total generation was 900 mln. kWh). The increase in generation on a yearly basis comes from the increase of 22% in thermal and 16% in wind power generation, more than offsetting the decrease in hydropower generation (-11%).

On a monthly basis, generation increased by 14% (in October 2019, total generation was 800 mln. kWh). The monthly increase in total generation was the result of an increase in electricity produced by thermal power plants (+88% with respect to October 2019) and wind power plants (+35% with respect to October 2019) more than offsetting the decrease in hydropower generation (-13% compared to October 2019).
