Azerbaijan is ready to enter a new level of renewable energy development, General Director of International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) Francesco La Camera told Trend.

"Azerbaijan is ready to further develop its renewable energy potential. The country can really benefit from this. Azerbaijan has a huge potential for using wind and solar energy," he said.

According to IRENA general director, the organization successfully cooperates with Azerbaijan’s Energy Ministry and directly with Minister Parviz Shahbazov.

"We now see major projects being funded, such as the joint project with Masdar [UAE’s Renewable energy company], and another with Equinor [Norvegian Petroleum refining company],” he noted.

“Azerbaijan is committed to diversifying its energy system, and we will continue to work to help the country in any possible way," added Francesco La Camera.
