"A source of solar energy has been created in the liberated areas. This source of energy will provide our operations in Sangachal with electricity," said Colin Allan, BP's vice-president for financial affairs in Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Turkiye, at the conference "Sustainable Development Goals on Green Transformation in Azerbaijan," APA-Economics reports.
According to him, this will also serve to decarbonize the area.
"We will transform our gas-fired plants with renewable energy, which will reduce our emissions by 11 percent, and in the future, will serve to clean up the hydrocarbon sector. Another direction that we will apply in Azerbaijan is low carbon emissions in the industry. Together with the Ministry of Energy, we are considering investments in "Green Energy," Allan stated.
