ADB supports Uzbekistan in harnessing indigenous hydropower resources



The total cost of the project is $75.3 million and is expected to be completed by the end of 2023.



The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has approved a $60 million loan to construct hydropower plants (HPPs) capable of adding 25 megawatts (MW) capacity, which will help the Government of Uzbekistan achieve its goal of diversifying the country’s energy mix through greater use of clean energy sources and lowering carbon emissions.

“ADB’s assistance to help build HPPs will boost Uzbekistan’s aim of securing a cleaner, more sustainable energy future,” said ADB Energy Specialist for Central and West Asia Mr. Seung Duck Kim. “The project’s integrated approach to high quality design, international practices on safeguards, and climate change resilience is a template for similar development of hydropower projects in Uzbekistan.”

Uzbekistan has abundant renewable energy resources, including hydropower. So far, only 1.9 gigawatts (GW) or 20% of the available hydropower potential has been exploited.

The project will construct hydropower plants with 25 MW of total capacity. This is composed of a 6 MW plant in Rabat, an 8 MW plant in Chappasuy, a 10 MW plant in Tamshusu, and three mini/micro-hydropower plants with a combined capacity of 1 MW. The mini/micro-HPPs will ensure the efficient use of water resources including from spillover water from dams or irrigation canals, and can be alternate sources of electricity in rural and remote villages. The project will also help the government to formulate a hydropower development masterplan, which will help identify potential private sector investment opportunities through public–private partnerships.

The Joint-Stock Company Uzbekhydroenergo, as the nodal agency to oversee the government’s $2.6 billion investment program to increase the country’s hydropower capacity by 1,600 MW by 2030, will be the project’s executing agency. ADB will also help improve Uzbekhydroenergo’s institutional capacity and corporate governance throughout the project.

The total cost of the project is $75.3 million and is expected to be completed by the end of 2023.

ADB is committed to achieving a prosperous, inclusive, resilient, and sustainable Asia and the Pacific, while sustaining its efforts to eradicate extreme poverty. In 2018, it made commitments of new loans and grants amounting to $21.6 billion. Established in 1966, it is owned by 68 members—49 from the region.

Shavkat Mirziyoyev instructs to gradually reduce state's presence in power sector





It is expected that this year the volume of power consumption in Uzbekistan will be 71 billion kilowatt hours, which is 9 percent as much as last year. The demand by manufacturing industries is anticipated to grow by 10 percent, and 8.5 percent by household customers.




On January 13, President Shavkat Mirziyoyev held a meeting to discuss key tasks for the current year in the development of the electric power industry.

This sector is important in ensuring sustainable economic growth and public welfare. Large-scale measures are being taken to modernize the industry, increase energy capacities and secure uninterrupted supply of electricity to consumers.

In accordance with a 1 February 2019 resolution of the Head of state, the Ministry of Energy of the Republic of Uzbekistan was established. The President’s resolution of March 27 of the same year reorganized the joint stock company Uzbekenergo, setting up on its basis the joint-stock companies Issiqlik Elektr Stansiyalari (Thermal Power Plants), O’zbekiston Milliy Elektr Tarmoqlari (National Power Grids of Uzbekistan) and Hududiy Elektr Tarmoqlari (Regional Power Grids).

Last year, through the implementation of 6 major projects, a total of 1,076 megawatts of electricity generating capacities were put into operation.

It is expected that this year the volume of power consumption in Uzbekistan will be 71 billion kilowatt hours, which is 9 percent as much as last year. The demand by manufacturing industries is anticipated to grow by 10 percent, and 8.5 percent by household customers.

The meeting participants discussed measures to meet the abovementioned need, and the implementation of a corresponding roadmap developed jointly with the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank.

President Shavkat Mirziyoyev insisted that measures defined for the production, distribution and delivery of electricity in 2020 be executed in full and in high quality.

Uztrangaz chief on why Uzbekistan will stop natural gas exports



Deep processing of natural gas is much more profitable for Uzbekistan than its exporting, the chairman of Uztransgaz, Ulugbek Sayidov told Gazeta.uz in an interview.

According to him, today, due to the announcement of quarantine due to coronavirus, China has temporarily reduced the import of natural gas, including from Uzbekistan.

Now the gas market is very volatile/ We all know well how much gas costs in Europe,. Given its netback price, we will be well off to use our gas in the domestic market. The president called on the energy sector senior officials to consider the issues of selling raw materials in the domestic market in order to obtain value-added products, he said.

According to preliminary estimates, one of the promising areas today is the MTO technology (methanol to olefins). This technology allows to produce polymers, which will add about three times value than the natural gas, said Ulugbek Sayidov.

“For Uzbekistan’s energy sector, the production and sale of polymers is not something new, the first project was implemented 20 years ago and options for its implementation have already been worked out. In terms of transportation flexibility, polymers are the best option for gas monetization, ”said the head of Uztransgaz.

In March 2019, Uzbekneftegaz and American Air Products signed a joint venture agreement for technical gases production unit. We are also negotiating with this company the implementation of the project of the MTO Gas Chemical Complex.

He added that more petrochemical projects were being considered to be implemented to 2025.

Uztransgaz supplies about 40 billion cubic meters of gas to the domestic market. In addition about 6 BCM of Turkmen gas is transported to Russia through Kazakhstan.

About 35–38 billion cubic meters of gas are transported through the Asia Trans Gas joint venture (between the Chinese TAPLINE CNPC and Uzbekneftegaz), which controls the Turkmenistan-Uzbekistan-Kazakhstan-China gas transmission system.

According to Ulugbek Sayidov, in the framework of the signed gas supply contracts in 2020, it is planned to export about 2-6 BCM to China, about 60 MCM to Kyrgyzstan, and 200 MCM to Tajikistan.

The other day, Chinese authorities sent notification to suppliers saying it was temporarily limiting the import of natural gas due to the spread of coronavirus.

For the first time, plans to stop gas exports were announced by the PM Abdulla Aripov. He noted that by 2025 measures will be taken to stop the export of natural gas and its full processing inside the country.

Uzbek President: half of country`s power plants are worn out



Over 50% of power stations in Uzbekistan are worn out and burn twice as much fuel than new combined-cycle plants. President Shavkat Mirziyoyev held a meeting dedicated to the energy companies’ transformation on October 26. He urged to revamp these companies not at the expense of public funding, but through attracting the private sector.

Power supply companies are obliged to switch into an international financial reporting system. This would allow obtaining international credit ratings and listing Eurobonds in the future. Based on these, the relevant bodies were instructed to develop a three-year financial model, prepare business plans and attract foreign specialists to the board and supervisory boards to facilitate the transformation process.
Presently, long-term agreements on the purchase of energy with investors are signed at fixed prices due to the absence of the wholesale energy market rule. Mirziyoyev ordered to draw up a document defining the stages and rules for the transition to a competitive electricity market by integrating digital technologies in the domain.

The solar power plants in Jizzakh, Samarkand and Surkhandarya regions, wind stations in Bukhara region and Karakalpakstan, thermal power plants in Syrdarya and Surkhandarya constructions will be done under PPP framework.
Mirziyoyev instructed to leave electricity tariffs unchanged in 2021-2022. He ordered to carry out modernization works by reducing production costs, and not by increasing tariffs.
