Azerbaijan’s transformative priorities and plans to develop as a green growth country and create a net zero-emission green energy zone necessitate the introduction of low-carbon approaches, said Azerbaijan’s energy minister Parviz Shahbazov as bp presented a decarbonization master plan, according to bp.

The minister pointed out that this document provides advanced solutions to build Azerbaijan’s energy system based on renewable energy sources and a low-carbon future, and to achieve the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 by up to 40 percent.
