Azerbaijan’s Energy Ministry and the Japanese TEPSCO company signed agreement on creating the ‘green energy’ zone in the country’s liberated territories, Trend reports on May 6 referring to a source in the ministry.
“To effectively use renewable energy potential such as wind, solar, hydro, geo-thermal and bio-energy in the liberated territories of Azerbaijan, it’s planned to create energy efficiency technologies based on modern energy management approaches,” the source said. “Besides, the project envisages research of the international experience, energy demand and power supply of the region, as well as network integration of renewable energy resources.”
