The main energy sources in Georgia are natural gas, petroleum products, hydropower and biomass. Hydropower dominates Georgia’s electricity generation sector, while the national economy depends on imports for the bulk of its primary energy requirements due to the low level of domestic oil and gas resources and there being only a few coal deposits in the country. The national energy sector is composed of the natural gas transportation and distribution sectors, power generation plants, the Georgian State Electrosystem (GSE), up to 34 natural gas distribution companies and three large power distribution companies. More than 70 per cent of primary energy supply is imported; fossil fuels make up more than 70 per cent of this.
