The paper explains the renewable energy resources of Georgia quantitatively and qualitatively in country and regional contexts. It is mentioned that Georgia is rich in this regard and in some degree it fills the lack of fuel resources (oil, natural gas) in the country. It comes 3.27MMkWh energy of river surface runoffs on each square kilometer of the territory.In this regard, it is a better situation with the use of hydro power resources. However, according to 2016 year data, Georgian HPPs worked out only 11.4% of their technical capacity and 23.6% of their economic potential.There are some measures for improving the use of hydropower resources, in terms of technical and economical and ecological context as well.
