Experts from the EU-funded energy programme INOGATE are visiting Azerbaijan on 29-30 April to provide assistance to the State Agency for Alternative and Renewable Energy Sources of the Azerbaijan Republic (SAARES), one of the key stakeholders in the area of renewables in Azerbaijan.
This work is aimed at improving secondary legislation on renewable energy licensing, thus creating a more conducive environment for the development of renewable energy in the country.
The team of ITS experts is working closely with the State Agency for Alternative and Renewable Energy Sources (RES) “to analyse the existing legislative framework on licensing in the RES sub-sector and the energy sector as a whole, to provide specific examples of RES licensing practices in EU countries and to elaborate proposals on how to improve primary and secondary RES legislation in Azerbaijan with respect to licensing / issuing special permits.”
Overall, this assistance will help to enhance the capacity of Azerbaijani institutions involved in the formulation and implementation of RES, at the same time enabling the creation of better conditions for the development of renewable energy projects in the country.
INOGATE is an EU-funded programme promoting international energy co-operation between the European Union and the Partner Countries of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan. The programme’s activities focus on four key areas: convergence of energy markets on the basis of the EU principles; enhancing energy security; supporting sustainable energy development; and attracting investment in energy (particularly in Sustainable Energy) projects of common and regional interest.
