Institutions & Energy Policy
The Ministry of Industry and Energy is the central executive authority responsible for implementing energy policy.
Since 2005 the "Tariff Council" has regulated the prices of commodities and services under a monopoly situation, including energy prices.
Azerenerji is Azerbaijan's public vertically integrated electricity company. It was transformed into a public holding company in 1996, and should be privatised once it has been able to produce sufficient profit to reimburse its debts.
Oil production has decreased by 30% since 2010, from 51 Mt to 39 Mt in 2019. Previously, foreign investments greatly boosted the country's oil production, which more than tripled between 2004 and 2010, partly with the start of the Shah-Deniz field in 2006.
Over 2015-2016, the price of electricity remained at US$5.9c/kWh for all customers, while it remained close to US$7.6c/kWh until 2014. Since 2017, it returned to its 2014 level at US$7.3c/kWh for industry and US$7.5c/kWh for households.

Per capita consumption is around 1.4 toe in 2018, including 2 086 kWh of electricity.
Total energy consumption increased at the rapid pace of 4%/year between 2010 and 2016; it remained stable throughout 2018 (14 Mtoe).
The energy intensity of GDP has been decreasing sharply since 1990 (-5%) and is now 12% above the EU's level at purchasing power parity.
Issues & Prospects
The hydrocarbon sector is driving the country's dynamic economic growth. Thanks to the investments made in the energy sector, the country experienced a growth of 25%-30%/year over the period 2005-2007 and around 10% in 2008 and 2009. Economic growth subsequently dropped to an average of 3.3%/year from 2010 to 2015, and was negative in 2016 due to the global drop in oil prices (-3%).
