The Georgian power system with an annual electricity consumption of about 13 billion kWh is small, but has a number of technological features. As of 01.06.2021, there are 59 hydropower plants operating in Georgia with a total installed capacity of 3398.6 MW, among them 26 are medium and 32 are small, with an installed capacity in the range of 25–250 MW and 1–25 MW, respectively. 26 medium and 32 small hydropower plants have a total installed capacity of 1828.2 MW and 274 MW, respectively, and provide electricity in Georgia in the amount of 5.5 billion kWh of electricity, which is more than 60 % of all the country’s electricity needs per year. A total of 142 hydroelectric units have been installed at Georgian hydroelectric power plants, the basis of the park is 114 units with a unit installed capacity of 1 to 25 MW, their total installed capacity is 1001.63 MW. For the period up to 2027, more than 50 new medium and small hydroelectric power plants will be commissioned in Georgia. The experience of Georgian development of hydropower potential through the construction of medium and small hydropower plants, maybe interesting for the development of hydropower resources in Russia or other countries.
