In March 2020, Georgian power plants generated 867 mln. kWh of electricity. This represents an 11% decrease in total generation, compared to the previous year (in March 2019, the total generation was 974 mln. kWh). The decrease in generation on a yearly basis comes from the decrease of 64% in thermal power generation more than offsetting the increase of 30% in hydro and 7% in wind power generation.

On a monthly basis, the generation increased by 2% (in February 2020, total generation was 851 mln. kWh) (Figure 1). The monthly increase in total generation was the result of the increase of 58% in hydro and 32% in wind more than offsetting the decrease of 62% in thermal power generation.

In February 2020, Georgian power plants generated 851 mln. kWh of electricity. This represents a 9% decrease in total generation, compared to the previous year (in February 2019, the total generation was 939 mln. kWh). The decrease in generation on a yearly basis comes from a decrease of 13% in hydro, 9% in wind, and 5% in thermal power generation.

On a monthly basis, generation decreased by 17% (in January 2020, total generation was 1,031 mln. kWh). The monthly decrease in total generation was the result of a decrease of 28% in thermal, 16% in wind, and 5% in hydropower generation.

In January 2020, Georgian power plants generated 1,031 mln. kWh of electricity. This represents a 2% increase in total generation, compared to the previous year (in January 2019, the total generation was 1,011 mln. kWh). The increase in generation on a yearly basis comes from the increase of 37% in thermal and 36% in wind power generation, more than offsetting the decrease in hydro power generation (-22%).

On a monthly basis, generation increased by 2% (in December 2019, total generation was 1,012 mln. kWh). The monthly increase in total generation was the result of an increase in electricity produced by thermal power plants (+20% with respect to December 2019) and wind power plants (+17% with respect to December 2019) more than offsetting the decrease in hydro power generation (-14% compared to December 2019).
