    Soltanov announced the share of renewable and alternative energy in Azerbaijan

    October 2, 2023 - Turan Information Agency


      Baku/02.10.23//Turan: Currently, only 17 percent of the installed energy capacity in Azerbaijan is renewable (including the capacity of hydroelectric power plants), Deputy Minister of Energy Elnur Soltanov stated. "We plan to increase this capacity to 30 percent by 2030, and I believe that we will even exceed this figure," the deputy minister said.

      According to him, the Azerbaijani government plans to open the largest solar power plant (SSP) in the Caucasus and the former USSR in October next year.

      "The 230 MW plant is being created only with the support of foreign investors. We are also working with the world-renowned BP and its partners on the construction of 240 MW in the liberated territories. We plan to build a hydroelectric power station," the deputy minister said.

      Soltanov added that this development of the situation corresponds to the zero-carbon dioxide emissions program, which Azerbaijan has undertaken as a commitment. -0
