Renewable Energy Description:

The Action Plan is closely matched with the "National Security Strategy" and provisions in the "Energy Sector Development Strategies in the Context of Economic Development".
The plan aims to:

  1. Provide reliable energy supply at low cost to satisfy the fundamental needs of all customers, while enhancing energy conservation; 
  2. Implement an energy import strategy that mitigates the effects of external political events on the security and economy of Armenia; 
  3. Maximise the use of domestic energy resources and nuclear energy; ensure the safe operation of the Armenian Nuclear Power Plant (ANPP) through 2016 (or when a suitable alternative is installed); and decommission without any unacceptable economic, ecological and energy security impacts; 
  4. Ensure ecologically safe energy supply, based on the principles of sustainable development and in compliance with the international environmental commitments of the Republic of Armenia; 
  5. Construct a financially stable energy system, encouraging the economically efficient operation of all energy suppliers, which would bring forth interest among the investors; 
  6. Create an export oriented electric energy system. 
  7. The plan states that Armenia should transition away from fossil fuels, and that this move will benefit its budget.
