Energy efficiency is an urgent direction in Energy and Natural
Resources Ministry. In this regard, on 20 February Deputy Energy
and Natural Resources Minister Hayk Harutyunyan invited round table
discussions. He presented the situation in energy field, “The more we
consume now, the higher probability that the electricity will go up
in its price, as cheap electricity resources are limited. The more
we consume, the more we must buy from thermal power plants, which
will be taken out of operation starting from 2018…In 2014 Vorotan
produced 150million kW/h less electricity than planned because of
lack of water. SHPPs should have produced 830 million, but factually
produced 685 million. We bought the lacking electricity from Hrazdan
TPP at higher price of 60 AMD. The less we consume, the less we will
buy, as the nuclear power plant can’t produce more, our SHPPs can’t
produce more, only the thermal power plant can produce more, so the
electricity price will go up,” Deputy Energy and Natural Resources
Minister Hayk Harutyunyan said.
