RES growths in Uzbekistan: Guzar solar PV tender to be announced; the RFQ entry target date for Scaling Solar 3 upcoming

Uzbekistan makes every effort to come to be the leading nation in Central Asia in the field of renewable energy. The Power Ministry stated earlier this year it has actually made a decision to reassess its preliminary 2030 power capacity targets by increasing the share of renewables in the country’& rsquo; s energy mix. The PV solar plant ability might be increased from the existing forecast of 5 GW to 7 GW as well as wind power generation from 3 GW to 5 GW.

Experts are certain Uzbekistan has all the prerequisites to achieve these targets.

The Government of Uzbekistan is getting ready to carry out an additional solar energy tender as part of the 1 GW solar PV program executed with the support of the Asian Growth Financial Institution. According to the Guzar job intro, a tender will be revealed for as much as 300 MW PV capability to be built in addition to a transmission line to the Guzar substation in the Guzar area of the Kashkadarya area.

Previously this year, the very first utility-scale solar PV plant Nur Navoi with a capability of 100 MW was put into operation by the Abu Dhabi Future Power Company (Masdar) in the Navoi area.

Along with Nur Navoi, Masdar won the tender to construct a 457 MW photovoltaic or pv solar power plant in the Surkhandarya region making the most affordable bid of $0.018045/ kWh and also ended up being the winning bidder of the public-private partnerships for 2 photovoltaic or pv solar parks (220 MW each) in the Jizzakh and Samarkand areas under the IFC’& rsquo; s Scaling Solar program

. In September, Uzbekistan announced the launch of the prequalification phase of a tender to select independent power producers to create three solar photovoltaic plants with an overall ability of 500 MW under the Scaling Solar 3. The RFQ entry target date is on 29 November.

Also, Complete Eren will soon release its 100 MW Tutly solar plant, located regarding a hundred kilometres east of the city of Samarkand.

Previously, electricity was mostly produced at Uzbekistan’& rsquo; s thermal nuclear power plant, and also the complete mounted capability of TPPs in the nation is more than 14.1 GW. Today, the Government of Uzbekistan thinks the eco-friendly energy shift can offer the economic situation an effective boost in addition to help meet the growing power need. A swiftly expanding population and also economic recovery have actually driven the development in electrical energy demand, and also the Federal government forecasts that in 5 years consumption will certainly increase 1.5 times.

Wind power is on the surge as well. In September, ACWA Power ended up being the favored winning prospective buyer for a 100 MW wind project in the Karakalpakstan area with a tariff proposal of $0.025695/ kWh under the EBRD 1 GW program. The EBRD structure imagines another 200 MW wind job to be revealed quickly.

Both ACWA Power and Masdar are establishing wind projects under reciprocal agreements. ACWA Power will certainly release two wind power plants (500 MW each) by the end of 2023 in the Bukhara area, as well as Masdar is preparing to launch its 500 MW wind ranch in the Navoi region by the end of 2024.

The hybrid tasks are additionally getting energy in Uzbekistan. EDF and Uzbekistan’& rsquo; s state hydropower manufacturer, Uzbekhydroenergo, are intending to authorize a formal memorandum of understanding and also produce a 200 MW pumped-hydro facility along with floating PV plants.

In addition, the prepare for environment-friendly development includes the expansion of making use of electrical vehicles, in addition to their production. The state offers rewards for the import of electric lorries and is considering the intro of subsidies for their acquisition.

To get more information, join the upcoming top-level global investment seminar Power Week Central Asia & & Mongolia 2022, which will happen on 26-28th April in Tashkent. The biggest renewables meeting in the region will certainly unite the authorities as well as power business of Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Mongolia in addition to global financial institutions and significant multinational financiers, EPC and consultancy companies for a discussion targeted at fostering the release of renewable energy in the area as well as attracting international straight financial investment. The conference will resolve the challenges of the tidy energy shift in addition to utility-scale renewable resource jobs and also will be adhered to by technological visits.
