BAKU, Azerbaijan, Dec.2
By Leman Zeynalova – Trend:
One of main goals of Azerbaijan in the coming years is to achieve high level of energy savings in the areas of supply and consumption and to reduce losses in transmission and distribution systems down to 2 percent and 8 percent respectively, said Azerbaijan’s energy minister Parviz Shahbazov during the CAREC Energy Investment Forum, Trend reports.
He noted that to this end, it is planned to conduct energy audits to ensure energy efficiency, introduce energy efficiency services, provide labeling and certification of buildings and establish management standards and last, but no least, establish an energy efficiency fund.
“Of course, all these measures require financial support and a comprehensive cooperation framework. In this regard, CAREC is a remarkable platform for development of energy efficiency initiative at the national level and contributing to regional targets,” added the minister.
