Concept note for ensuring electricity supply in Uzbekistan 2020-2030
The main objectives of this document are 1) to find how to satisfy the country’s electrical power demand in full through domestic generation without dependence on energy imports and thus ensuring energy security; 2) improvement of national economy’s energy efficiency with parallel reductions in energy intensity achieved through, inter alia, creation of economic mechanisms to stimulate rational use of electrical power by consumers; 3) increasing energy efficiency of generation, transmission and distribution of electrical power to satisfy the growing demand; 4) reduction of power equipment wear through consistent renewal, increasing reserves in generation and transmission assets; 5) development and expansion of renewables use and their integration into the unified power system; and 6) development of efficient basic electricity market model.
The note notably sets targets for electricity generation from wind and solar sources.
Implementation of 62 projects is envisaged in 2020-2030 including construction of 35 HPPs totalling 1537MW and modernisation of 27 existing HPPs with 186MW capacity added.
Construction of 3GW wind and 5GW solar power capacities by 2030.
