Variable renewable energy summit,Tbilisi - Georgia, November 25th-26th 2019

This conference was organized by USAID to foster renewable energy deployments in Georgia. The country is on the verge of adopting  a policy to favour solar and wind deployment in order to diversify its electricity generation portfolio : Georgia has 80% of its electricity generated from hydro and the rest comes from gas.

Georgia has a growing electricity consumption and is looking to integrate the European Union, energy and ancillary services markets are thus likely to be set up in the coming years, which could present an opportunity for energy storage.

M. Corentin Baschet, Head of Market analysis at Clean Horizon Consulting, has presented  how Energy storage can be a tool to integrate intermittent renewable energies in electrical systems.
