BAKU, Azerbaijan, August 15. Israeli companies
are eager to implement projects in renewable energy sector in
Azerbaijan, Israeli Ambassador George Deek told Trend .
'We are encouraging more Israeli companies to engage in the
renewable energy sector, especially in solar and wind - those are
the areas, where we have a relative advantage, compared to other
countries. There are few options that, I believe, Azerbaijani
Ministry of Energy will come up with soon, regarding renewable
energy projects in Karabakh as well, and we will definitely urge
Israeli companies to participate, and, hopefully, that will become
another bridge in the successful energy cooperation between the two
countries,' he said.
According to the ambassador, cooperation in the energy sector is
a part of the strategic partnership between Azerbaijan and
'Israel's oil supply from Azerbaijan accounts for 40 percent of
the total imports. We are lucky to have such a reliable and strong
partner as Azerbaijan, which is something that not everyone has,
especially right now, amid the global energy crisis. We definitely
intend to increase our cooperation in this field. We hope to see
the stability in the global energy industry, and this will happen
with players like Israel and Azerbaijan, contributing and being a
part of an equal energy system,' Deek added.
