Armenia has no own fossil fuel resources and is completely dependant on supplies from outside. Development of alternative energy resources is strategically important for the country. The inflow of solar energy per square unit of surface is higher for around 70% than in Europe, the assessed wind potential is 400–450 MW. There are definite shifts in hydrogen energy technologies. Some solar and hydrogen technologies are already commercialized. Definite progress is being made, with wind-, hydrogen-, and solar-generated projects. Part B of presented paper examined the current status and development paths of wind, solar, and hydrogen energy applications in Armenia. Following points, which presented specific interest, are in the focus: in what extent Armenia succeeded in keeping up the world tendencies of renewable energy, and what are the preconditions for the speeded-up development of renewable energy in Armenia?
