In the eleven months since the beginning of 2021, 13.8 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity have been consumed in Georgia, which is 23% more compared to the same period in 2020. This is reported by the Operator of the Georgian Electricity Market (ESCO).
According to these data, 11.5 billion kilowatt-hours were generated in Georgia from January to November 2021.
A large share of the generated energy came from hydroelectric power plants – 9.5 billion kilowatt-hours, thermal power plants generated about 1.8 billion kilowatt-hours, and the Kartli wind farm - 78.4 million kilowatt-hours.
Georgia made up for the shortage of electricity through imports from its neighbors.
From January to November inclusive, Georgia imported approximately 1.8 billion kilowatt-hours, including 1.1 billion kilowatt–hours from Russia, 161.2 million kilowatt-hours from Turkey, 528.8 million kilowatt-hours from Azerbaijan.
And exports for the reporting period amounted to 390.9 million kilowatt-hours.
Electricity consumption in Georgia is growing every year. According to experts, by 2030 the country may face a serious energy shortage, since by that time electricity consumption will grow by almost 70% and reach 22 billion kilowatt-hours.
