Construction Of Bp's Solar Power Plant In Azerbaijan's Jabrayil Likely Start Before COP29

(MENAFN- Trend News Agency) BAKU, Azerbaijan, July 8. The construction of bp's solar power plant in Jabrayil is expected to start before COP29, the Director General of COP29, Deputy energy Minister Elnur Soltanov told reporters in ADA after the opening ceremony of the summer energy school, Trend reports.

"Azerbaijan has already uttered its voice in the oil and gas spheres, we have become a reliable partner in ensuring the energy security of the world's countries. Now, Azerbaijan demonstrates seriousness in its intentions to implement "green" projects, both at sea (plans to create wind farms) and on land-in Absheron and liberated territories. The process of transition to "green" energy in the world is unstoppable. Our philosophy is to utter our voice in "green" energy," Soltanov said.

According to him, Azerbaijan is also rich in such sources of "green" energy as water resources.

"Hydroelectric power plants have already been and will be built in Karabakh and Eastern Zangezur, which will sufficiently provide the liberated lands and neighboring territories with electricity. The project of construction of a solar power plant by bp in the Jabrayil region is next in line, and I think we will hear about the commencement of this project before COP29," Soltanov said.

To note, the 29th session of the Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP29) will be held in Azerbaijan in November this year. The decision was made at the plenary meeting of COP28 held in Dubai on December 11 last year. Within two weeks Baku, having become the center of the world, will host about 70,000-80,000 foreign guests.

The UN Framework Convention on Climate Change is an agreement signed at the Rio Earth Summit in June 1992 to prevent dangerous human interference in the climate system. The acronym COP (Conference of Parties) stands for Conference of Parties, which is the highest legislative body overseeing the implementation of the Framework Convention on Climate Change.

A total of 198 countries are parties to the convention. Unless the parties have decided otherwise, COP is held annually. The first COP event was held in March 1995 in Germany's Berlin with its secretariat in nation's Bonn.
