We think positive about all innovations which will help to improve the ecology of our country, Jeyhun Mammadov, General Director at Azpetrol Ltd., said in his interview to Caspian Energy (CE) journal.

 

According to him, Azpetrol will handle this task: “We are planning to keep up with the time and ready to meet the needs of our customers using electric cars”.

 

“Though, as far as the ecology is concerned, it should be noted that 80% and 20% of electricity supplied to the Republic comes from thermal and water plants respectively. In other words, 80% of energy consumed by an electric car in Azerbaijan is generated through transformation of the chemical energy of fuel into a thermal energy in the course of combustion, which means the combustion of the same fuel again. The situation is similar in other countries as well. For now there are very few countries which can boast about generation of energy out of alternative sources. Then what is the difference between consuming the fuel in the thermal plan or in the engine of the vehicle? Therefore, we think it is too early now to assume that the fuel era left in the past”, he said.

 

However, Mammadov says that they already plan to install facilities designed for charging electric vehicles in our new filling stations.
