Armenia plans to join energy grids with neighboring countries
The joining of the energy grids of Russia, Georgia, Armenia and Iran can be completed in two to three years, Armenian Deputy Prime Minister Tigran Avinyan said in New York.
"We are currently building high-voltage [power] lines with Georgia and Iran. The whole logic is that we, Georgia, Iran, and Russia work simultaneously in the grid. This cooperation is very important. Now, we want to build a system that will enable to work simultaneously with Russia, or to change the frequencies so that we can be connected," RIA Novosti cited him as saying.
According to the Deputy Prime Minister, the meaning of joining these grids is so that "we have one global market and global energy infrastructure."
