Masdar strikes 1GW clean energy agreement with Azerbaijan

The agreements came after the launch of the 230MW Garadagh Solar Park.

UAE-based energy firm Masdar has signed three investment deals for solar and onshore wind projects with an overall capacity of 1 gigawatt (GW) in Azerbaijan.

The agreements followed after the launch of the 230MW Garadagh Solar Park, Masdar’s first renewable project in Azerbaijan, the first foreign investment-based solar power project in the country and the largest operational solar plant in the region.

Through Masdar, progress will go through for the first phase of a 10GW production line of renewable energy projects in Azerbaijan that started in 2022. And it will set as a milestone in Azerbaijan's 2030 clean energy ambitions.

Masdar also plans its expansion over the Caucasus region and Central Asia.
