    Azerbaijan wants to export more gas at the expense of green energy

    June 4, 2023 - Azerbaijan News Gazette


      02 Jun 2023 (Turan News Agency) Azerbaijan plans to put into operation solar and wind power plants with a total capacity of 1800 MW by the end of 2026; this will release 1 bcm of gas for export, Energy Minister Parviz Shahbazov said.

      "We are planning to implement a megaproject that will allow us to put into operation solar and wind power plants with a total capacity of 1800 MW by the end of 2026. This, in turn, will allow us to send an additional 1 bcm of gas for export," Shahbazov said at the Baku Energy Forum.

      According to him, Azerbaijan works with various companies, in particular with Masdar, ACWA Power, BP, etc. to create new power capacities of 1.8 GW in the field of renewable energy. "It is planned to increase this figure to 5 GW by 2030," the minister said.

      Shahbazov also said that the export of "green" energy from Azerbaijan in the future is planned to be conducted in two directions - through a power cable through Georgia along the bottom of the Black Sea to Europe in the amount of 4 GW, and through the Zangezur corridor to Nakhchivan and further to Turkey in the amount of 1 GW.
