YEREVAN.— The electricity supply from Armenia to Iran has increased by 104% in January as compared to the same period last year, Armenian deputy energy minister Hayk Harutyunyan told reporters on Tuesday.
According to him, the growth trend continues in February, however, one cannot assume that the supplies will increase every month, as the electricity consumption in the current warm weather conditions has decreased.
“This is a complex process, and it is necessary to take into account the specifics,” the official added.
Nevertheless, he continued, the growth of electricity exports was described as a priority task in government programs and in strategy documents.
“For this purpose, negotiations are being conducted with both Iran and Georgia," the deputy minister concluded.
