Fourth panel discussion is about “Energy and climate change disputes”.

Seda Shahinyan (Commissioner, Public Services Regulatory Commission of
Armenia): “The electricity market should be liberalized and the first steps have been taken. In 2022, this field has switched from a monopoly to a competitive one.
One million consumers received the opportunity to choose their supplier. Nowadays, thirty companies can sell the energy produced by their solar panels in this market.” It is planned to increase this volume of renewable solar energy to 1000 megawatts by 2030 instead of the current 210”.

S. Shahinyan also noted that they are open to introducing new arbitration mechanisms in this field.
