According to him, several important problems should be settled to achieve new goals: “For example, per head production capacity of power stations makes up 1.35 kWh in Russia, 1.25 kWh in Kazakhstan, 1.3-3 kWh in EU and 0.75 kWh in Azerbaijan. So, Azerbaijan needs to increase total capacity of energy system to over 10,000 mWh in order to be at the same level with abovementioned countries. On the other side, electrification level in the country is high, but not 100 percent. Most countries staying behind Azerbaijan have found optimal ways to supply the remote regions with energy. Azerbaijan also prepared “Development and reconstruction program” containing 4 parts on 6 regions to optimize the access of regions to the energy. The first part of the program includes measures covering rehabilitation of power networks. This will contribute to interrupted energy supply of population in the regions, reconstruction of energy supply for irrigation systems and increase of energy supply to industrial spheres and tourism facilities. The second part of the program is to take measures which were directed to modernization of regional power networks for next three years and considered in “Master Plan of Energy Sector in Azerbaijan for 2013-2025”. As a result of this, energy supply in the regions will be fully provided”.
Aliyev added that lack of necessary generation powers in regions and falling of major part of the energy consumption in the country to share of Baku and Absheron a few years ago resulted in high losses: “The measures taken recent years partly solved these problems. Energy loss is due to old power lines. Therefore, power stations were constructed in Baku and Sumgayit, power lines were renewed. According to the international practice, the most optimal method to reduce energy loss, increase energy charges and increase the reliability is to involve private sector in this sphere”.
