Georgia has vast hydropower resources potential that could provide clean energy to the region. Yet as precipitation becomes more erratic, managing watersheds where hydroelectric plants exist or are planned, is a crucial development challenge. USAID has been supporting implementation of incentives and financing for sustainable and low-emissions hydropower development, improving the efficiency of the electric transmission system, and establishing mechanisms for cross-border trade of clean electricity. USAID also supports sustainable development at the local level, assisting municipalities in planning and financing energy efficiency projects.
