Azerbaijan’s economic potential of solar energy is 23 GW. The region's favourable climate, boasting 2,400-3,200 hours of sunshine annually, gives Azerbaijan strong potential as a solar energy producer.

In October, the 230 MW Garadagh Solar PV Plant was inaugurated. Several other projects are underway, and the country continues to sign agreements with stakeholders interested in its solar energy.
As Azerbaijan expands its solar energy infrastructure, the country is working with partners from the public and private sector, including businesses and multilateral development banks – stakeholders central to negotiations at COP29.
