Azerbaijani company talks on alternative energy projects
BAKU, Azerbaijan, Feb. 18
By Nargiz Ismayilova – Trend:
The projects related to the use of alternative energy sources are mainly implemented in remote areas in which there is no electricity, Business manager of Azerbaijan’s Helind company Orkhan Guluzade told Trend.
“The alternative energy panels are installed on farms, mountain areas, small recreation centers and telecommunication stations,” Guluzade added.
"We build very few systems in the areas which have electricity because it is impossible to sell energy which has been already generated by the system over the network in Azerbaijan,” the business manager added. “As is known, the system produces energy only in the daytime and energy is less consumed during these hours as people are at work.”
“The energy, which is not used, is automatically sold upon the European practice over the network and a user, coming at night, returns this energy and saves his/her expenses,” Guluzade added. “But this system has not been used in Azerbaijan, but we hope that it will be launched at the end of this year or next year."
“The main part of the alternative energy panels is installed in such districts as Shamakhi, Guba, Gusar, Khizi, Shabran, Goranboy, Gazakh and others,” the business manager added.
Helind LLC is the only company in the Caucasus producing electronic systems for alternative energy sources.
The company mainly focuses on alternative energy. Helind is engaged in domestic production of electrical devices, solar collector control elements and solar trackers.
The company plans to fully use domestic equipment in its systems in the near future and the work in this direction is underway.
An alternative energy source is a renewable resource, it replaces traditional energy sources operating on oil, natural gas and coal, which, when burned, emit carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, and this contributes to an increase in the greenhouse effect and global warming.
The reason for the search for alternative energy sources is the need to receive it from the energy of renewable or practically inexhaustible natural resources and phenomena. Its other advantage is environmental friendliness and profitability.
