Electricity sector in Armenia
The Armenian regulator has decided to form an operator at the liberal energy market and set network rules

The Armenian government gave its approval to the package of the measures to be taken to liberalize the domestic electricity market and to spur the development of interstate trade. 

Ashot Manukyan, Armenian minister of energy infrastructures and natural resources, said the necessity of transition to a new modern energy market is due to demand at the domestic market and the opportunity to use the organization of trans-border electricity trade.     

Since Armenia declared its independence in 1991, he said, it has been remaining stuck to the market liberalization principle, and now only electric energy market remains not liberalized. 

In his words, first steps have already been taken – the Armenian regulator has decided to form an operator at the liberal energy market and set network rules.
