    Big Potential for Small Hydropower in Georgia

    04/11/2015

    The European Union's European Bank for Reconstruction and Development issued the following news release:

    The energy sector in my native Bulgaria is relatively hi-tech and liberalised. So when I came to Georgia at the end of 2006 to take part in the creation and management of a key energy company and a year later began running the firm, becoming an investor in the Georgian energy sector was the last thing on my mind.

    It needed to be further stabilised. There had been almost no investment for decades and blackouts were commonplace due to technical failures or lack of any maintenance. There were a lot of regions where almost nobody wanted to pay for the energy they consumed and exports were practically impossible due to lack of reliable infrastructure and policies.
