President of Uzbekistan holds meeting on renewable energy sources

On November 22, President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev held a meeting on the development of alternative and renewable energy sources in the country, the press office of the President of Uzbekistan reported.

Uzbekistan has joined the global trend of replacing traditional energy sources and switching to green technologies. In 2019, the country adopted the Law on the Use of Renewable Energy Sources and started large-scale works. Uzbekistan announced its intention to reduce nationwide carbon emissions per unit of GDP by 35% by 2030 at the recent Climate Change Summit in Scotland.

In August 2021, the first photovoltaic station in Uzbekistan started working in Navoi Region, and a similar station will be put into operation in Samarkand in December.

In accordance with the strategy for the introduction of eco-friendly energy technologies, foreign investments will be attracted to build 10 wind and solar power plants with a total capacity of 3,000 megawatts in Uzbekistan from 2022 to 2024, including 5 stations in Bukhara, Kashkadarya, Namangan, Fergana and Khorezm Regions.

It is planned to build the facilities that will produce building materials for future wind and solar power plants, which will significantly reduce the cost of implementing the programme. In this regard, President Mirziyoyev instructed that qualified personnel who would build and maintain future power plants be trained.
