Supporting the transition to secure, clean and affordable energy

Energy Week Central Asia & Mongolia

The event brings together authorities and energy companies fromUzbekistan, KazakhstanKyrgyzstanTajikistan, and Mongoliaas well as international financial institutions and major multinational investors, EPC and consultancy firms for a dialogue aimed at fostering the deployment of renewable energy in the region and attracting foreign direct investment. 

Solar PV

The region has enormous solar potential coupled with favourable conditions. A UAE developer secured three solar projects in Uzbekistan, which will have a combined capacity of 900 MW. They have also signed an agreement with the Kyrgyz government to develop a pipeline of renewable projects with a capacity of up to 1 GW. The first project in the pipeline is a 200 MW solar plant, scheduled to begin operation in 2026.

Wind Energy

Wind energy has the greatest potential among all RES in some countries of the region. A French multi-energy company signed an agreement for the construction of the largest wind energy project ever initiated in Kazakhstan. The 200 wind turbines, totalling 1 GW of installed capacity, will be combined with a 600 MWh battery storage system.  Whereas in Uzbekistan, a Saudi energy company signed an agreement for the development of a 1.5 GW project in the Karakalpakstan region.

Hydropower

By hydro resources, Tajikistan is ranked top in Central Asia and eighth in the world, with approximately
220 terawatt-hours of technically recoverable resources and 3600 MW Rogun HPP under construction. In Kyrgyzstan, the hydropower potential is estimated at 142.5 billion kWh, which is currently only used by 10%. Uzbekistan is to develop 3.8 GW by 2030, with 100 MM Khojikent PSHPP, 100 MW Mullalak HPP, and 100 MW Upper-Pskem HPP among investment projects planned for 2023-2028.
