Total theoretical wind energy potential of Gerogia amounts to 1,300 gigawatt hours (GWh) and exceeds the total theoretical river energy potential (135 GWh) almost ten times. On the territory of Georgia several prospective sites for the wind farm construction have been identified. The total installed capacity of these potential wind farms is 1,450 MW with annual generation of about 4,160 mln. kWh. Georgia’s current energy policy – the Parliamentary Resolution on Main Directions of State Policy in Power Sector – dates back to 2006, and the current State Programme for Renewable Energy was adopted in 2008. In 2013, the government launched procedures for setting up a working group to develop a medium to long-term energy strategy, but very little progress has been observed in incorporating all parts of the energy sector into the country’s energy policy directions.
Its energy sector is predominantly occupied with developing its hydro energy potential, overlooking that for developing other renewables or maximising energy efficiency gains. The government is committed to substantially expanding hydropower generation capacity in the coming years; consequently the construction of new hydropower plants and electric transmission lines remains the country’s top priority. The country’s main strategy to meet the growing need of power is to reduce the energy dependency by increasing the energy efficiency, increased use of renewable resources and connecting to the power infrastructure of Commonwealth Independent States (CIS).
