Georgia has great potential for the development of solar energy. However, only a handful of solar projects are being implemented in the country. Moreover, Georgia does not have a strategic plan for the development of the energy sector nor does it have a specific policy or action plan in place for the development of solar energy. The article addresses the problems and challenges in the field of energy that hinder the development of Georgia's solar power. The paper also discusses the measures that should be undertaken to help develop solar energy in the country: developing an action plan, creating energy reserves in the network and/or building solar power plants equipped with batteries, conducting systematic surveys and information campaigns on solar power plants.
