Rector of the Baku Higher Oil School Elmar Gasimov also noted the cooperation with the Azerbaijan Renewable Energy Agency under the Ministry of Energy: "The use of renewable energy sources is important to prevent the global environmental crisis. Renewable energy sources are also an alternative to the use of depleted resources. Oil companies are already investing in this area and taking steps to develop it. Azerbaijan also has big plans to use renewable energy sources. Large-scale projects have been launched in this area. We attach importance to the training of specialists to work on these projects. Internships for teachers and students at the newly established wind and solar power plants, and the employment of future professional graduates in these projects are among the plans.”
