The exhibition UzEnergyExpo is an important business event for the energy market of Uzbekistan, a kind of “indicator” of the industry. Each year specialized industry experts, oil, engineering, construction, installation companies, utilities and public facilities can examine all the offers of the market, compare, select and purchase the necessary equipment at the exhibition UzEnergyExpo.
In Uzbekistan, 85% of the electricity produce heat and power plant due to combustion of fossil fuels – gas, coal and fuel oil. The rest of the accounts for hydroelectric power stations according to UzA.
However, the use of natural gas in industry as a raw material or its export would be of great benefit to the country.
In accordance with the resolution of the President of our country "On the program of measures for the further development of hydropower for 2017-2021" of may 2, 2017, due to the construction of new hydroelectric power plants and technical re-equipment of the existing ones by 2025, it is planned to increase their energy production by 1.7 times compared to 2016.
The population's demand for electricity is increasing. With this in mind, the construction of a nuclear power plant (NPP) in our country will help to stabilize the situation in this area.
On July 10 this year, under the chairmanship of Shavkat Mirziyoyev, a meeting was held on the implementation of organizational and technical measures for the creation of nuclear power. The head of our state gave instructions to act on the basis of the experience of developed countries in the construction of such facilities, to develop technical conditions for the placement of nuclear power plants and the quality of geological exploration.
In this case, the Role of the Institute of nuclear physics of the Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Uzbekistan is great. His scientists are among the organizers of the project of construction of nuclear power plants. At the same time, they are responsible for training thousands of specialists in nuclear power plant management and maintenance. In this regard, a number of higher educational institutions of Uzbekistan are planning to open departments of nuclear physics.
It is safe to say that the launch of a nuclear power plant in Uzbekistan will be a factor in the further economic, social and political development of Uzbekistan.
Company SkyPower Global (Cayman Islands) will direct $1.3 billion investment in the project for the construction of facilities for the development of photovoltaic solar energy.

A new steam-gas unit is put into operation at Tashkent Thermal Power Plant.President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev launched a new steam-gas unit at Tashkent Thermal Power Plant on 2 December 2017.
Uzbek leader pressed the symbolic start button of the new steam-gas unit with a capacity of 370 megawatts.
After commissioning of a new steam-gas unit, the station will generate an additional 2,6 billion kilowatt/hour of electricity and 110 thousand gigacalories of heat per year.
At a modern installation, the specific gas consumption for the generated electricity will be 223 g/kW/h, while at the operating power units this figure is almost twice as high. As a result, 350,9 million cubic meters of natural gas are saved every year.
A steam-gas turbine and generators of the American company “General Electric” were installed in the plant. Modern equipment is also brought from Belgium, Italy, Russia and other countries.
Products of domestic enterprises, including JSC “Uzkabel”, “Uzelektroapparat”, Chirchik Transformer Plant and others were widely used when implementing the project. This made it possible to significantly save currency and effectively use the attracted investments.
The operation of the steam-gas unit is fully automated.
In 2000-2015, the electricity consumption in Uzbekistan increased from 46.8 billion kWh to 57.5 billion kWh. It is estimated that by 2020 the country will consume by 25% more or 71.8 billion kWh of electricity.
The current installed capacity of the country's power plants is 12,994 MW, including 12,514 MW of installed capacity of 39 thermal and hydroelectric power plants of SJSC Uzbekenergo. Meanwhile, Uzbekistan has estimated potential of solar, wind and hydro energy at over 530 billion kWh, 520 billion kWh and 1,800 billion kWh of installed capacity respectively. The World Bank Group supports the Government of Uzbekistan in developing renewable energy policy and investments that will contribute to the country’s economic growth.
On 5-6 December, Tashkent hosts a workshop on renewable energy (RE) policy development jointly organized by the Government of Uzbekistan and the World Bank Group (WBG) in partnership with the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA). The event is attended by around 80 representatives of ministries and state agencies, state energy companies, international organizations, expert and academic circles concerned.
The purpose of the workshop is to support the Government’s efforts in introduction of RE in the country through discussion of best practices in development of RE strategy, policy, regulations, institutional measures, modern technologies, and project preparation and implementation adopted around the world, including cases of the Latin American, African and South Asian states. The event also contributes to discussion on development of RE roadmap in Uzbekistan to assist the Government in implementation of the Action Program on Renewable Energy Development for 2017-2021 adopted in May 2017, and also to promote private sector investments in renewable energy development.
“Why RE development is important for Uzbekistan? Firstly, it will ensure the country’s energy security, by helping diversify the energy mix and improve the long-term reliability of supply. Secondly, it is more economically efficient as it reduces the use of natural gas and coal for power production, which have a high opportunity cost. Thirdly, introduction of RE also represents new business opportunities as it creates an industry with new jobs. Fourthly, there are environmental and health benefits related to RE as it reduces fossil fuel combustion detrimental for environment and human health. Last but not least, it would help the country’s commitment to address the climate change challenges”, says Sameer Shukla, Practice Manager of World Bank’s Energy and Extractives Global Practice.
The Government has identified introduction of RE among other priorities under the Strategy of Actions on the Five Priority Areas of Development of Uzbekistan for 2017-2021. The World Bank Group supports the efforts of the Government to increase renewables’ share in power production from 12.7% in 2016 to 19.7% by 2025. For example, in 2015 development of a Wind Atlas of Uzbekistan and pre-feasibility studies for wind project sites were supported under a World Bank-financed project. The Atlas proves that the country possesses significant wind resources that are suitable for development of commercially feasible large-scale wind power farms in selected regions of the country.
During the workshop the WBG, the IRENA, local and international experts will deliver a number of presentations and will have a fruitful exchange with the event participants on the following topics:
The WBG experts will also speak about financial, advisory and insurance services support that it is ready to provide to the Government and private sector to assist with implementation of promising RE projects in the country.
In Uzbekistan, the World Bank currently supports the implementation of 16 projects, which are worth of around US$2 billion. Those projects cover such priority areas as agriculture and water resources management, energy, transport, healthcare, education, urban development, water supply and sanitation.
