We plan to complete almost 100 percent the energy supply to the entire Karabakh area by the end if this year,” the head of state said.
“We have many other plans and, of course, we count on a cooperation with EBRD on these issues. I already have declared the liberated territories as a green energy zone. We plan to use mostly renewable energy sources, sources of water, sun and wind.
