Investing in Renewable Energy in Azerbaijan: A Valuation of Three Alternative Investment Scenarios

dc.contributor.authorTim Kerckhoff
dc.description.abstractThe central aim of this paper is to provide a valuation of the investment in renewable energy and illuminate the extent to which gas exports may mitigate the investment’s costs. Evidently, there exists an abundance of renewable energy investment valuations, as well as discussions of different approaches to such valuations. However, it is difficult to find such valuations that directly incorporate cash flows resulting from fossil fuel exports enabled by the investment in renewable energy itself. Instead, it may be insightful to compare Azerbaijan's approach to renewable energy, as assessed in the present paper, with those pursued by other fossil fuel rich countries. Choucri, et. al., for instance, provide an analysis of the United Arab Emirates’ decision to increase their renewable energy investments. Another case worth looking at is that of Norway, which has been using funds previously generated from oil exports to finance investments in renewable energy. Beyond the investment valuation focus of this paper, Vidadili et. al. provide a comprehensive overview of the developments around renewable energy in Azerbaijan. Simon Pirani has provided insightful analyses of the Southern Gas Corridor’s relevance for Azerbaijan.
