Baku/10.03.23//Turan: Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev hopes for the early start of the supply of "green" electricity from Azerbaijan to Europe. Following talks with Latvian President Egils Levits in Baku on March 8, he said that "Azerbaijan is becoming a more important partner for the European Union in terms of energy supplies." "The European Commission has always considered us as a reliable partner," the head of the Azerbaijani state stressed.
"Today we export oil, natural gas, petrochemical products, petroleum products to Europe. I hope we will start exporting green energy soon," Aliyev said.
On December 17, 2022, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Romania, and Hungary signed in Bucharest an agreement on strategic partnership for the construction of an underwater electric cable Black Sea Energy with a capacity of 1,000 MW and a length of 1,195 km. The cable will be intended for the supply of "green" electricity produced in Azerbaijan through Georgia and the Black Sea to Romania for subsequent transportation to Hungary and the rest of Europe.
At the moment, work on the project is at the stage of developing a feasibility study, which is scheduled to be completed in September 2023. –0-
