Hydropower accounts for about 10% of the country’s domestic annual electricity generation.

About 25% of the country’s freshwater resources are concentrated in the Karabakh and East Zangazur regions, making hydropower a critical part of achieving the 2050 Net Zero target in these designated Green Energy Zones.

The crown jewel of Azerbaijan's hydropower infrastructure is the Mingachevir Hydroelectric Power Plant, which boasts an impressive installed capacity of 424 MW.
