The project "Support to Renewable Energy Auctions in Azerbaijan" is being implemented within the framework of cooperation between the Ministry of Energy of the Republic of Azerbaijan and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).
The project provides for the selection of an electricity producer in the areas of renewable energy sources, a set of conditions for holding auctions, as well as the preparation of relevant contracts for signing. An international consulting company has been involved for the implementation of the project and relevant rules have been developed.
After the adoption of mentioned rules, the first renewable energy auctions in our country are planned to be held in 2022. Improving the regulatory framework in the existing sector will stimulate the expansion of the use of renewable energy sources, as well as will encourage investment to this area.
