BP Stock- BP : Azerbaijan says it is discussing solar energy production in Karabakh with BP
(BA)KU, May 21 (Reuters) – British oil major BP and
Azerbaijan are discussing setting up a solar energy production
facility in Karabakh, Azeri President Ilham Aliyev said on
Friday, according to a video released by the state news agency
“Now both BP and Azerbaijan are very actively working on
renewable sources of energy … and there is a plan to invest in
solar power generation,” Aliyev said at a meeting with UK
Minister for Exports Graham Stuart, the video footage showed.
Azerbaijan plans to develop ‘green energy’ in Karabakh,
Aliyev added. Late last year Azerbaijan won back some areas
commonly referred to as Karabakh, territory previously
controlled by ethnic Armenians who say the land is theirs.
