President approved immediately the Regulations on ABEMDA, its structure (it includes only the Agency’s administration) and staffing - no more than 100 staff members.

This company aims to design, produce, build, operate, and provide infrastructure in the area of exploration and development of alternative and renewable energy sources, energy production, transport and distribution of alternative energy, purchase equipment, installations and facilities. ABEMDA will determine the structure, number of employees, the payment system and a budget of Azaltenergiya, assign its controls, form the Supervisory Board, and approve the financial statements.
The decree commissions the Cabinet Ministers to solve for a month to decide on financing of ABEMDA activity, its building equipping, form the charter capital of Azalternativenerji and provide for it financing from the state budget for the activities in the first phase.
