Sustainable Bioenergy for Georgia
An overview of the prevailing institutional framework related to bioenergy and associated
policies opens this roadmap, followed by a description of the wider context of bioenergy
supply and consumption in Georgia.
The body of the roadmap focuses on:
Ensuring sustainable biomass supplies
Modernising the consumption of biomass.
Current Georgian practices are summarised for these two areas, and examples of international
best practices in bioenergy from IEA member countries are offered. The roadmap then
outlines the policies, technologies and management practices needed for Georgia to
harness its biomass potential securely and sustainably. These are presented as a set
of overarching policy actions, underpinned by detailed biomass supply and consumption
The recommended actions are compiled as a co-ordinated package of measures to be implemented
during 2020-25 to modernise Georgia’s bioenergy industry and make it sustainable by
2030. The social, economic and environmental benefits for the country are summarised
as a vision of Georgia’s modern bioenergy industry in 2030.
