CSP and PV development in Uzbekistan
Benefits of Project
Uzbekistan is going through a rapid development process with remarkably high yearly GDP growth rates. Incorporating solar energy can bring multiple benefits by providing fast deployment of needed generation capacity in a way that makes use of a free local resource such as solar radiation.
ADB supported the project with the ministry of Finance of Uzbekistan and Physic-Sun as implementing agents. The team comprises 20 experts (international and national).
The project starts by studying steps required to create an enabling environment for this industry.
Starting with Roadmap, Solar Resource Assessment, up to six Solar Energy Projects have been identified.
For each project a full Feasibility study was carried out:
A NAMA and Roadmap for solar development in Uzbekistan was prepared submitted to UN and approved by GoU.
