Uzbekistan: State-Owned Utility to Increase Solar Thermal Deployment

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on June 8, 2015
UzbekistanUzbekistan’s government is exploring its solar options to reduce the country’s dependency on fossil fuel imports. The central Asian state with 31 million inhabitants is an oil-producing nation, but because national demand is higher than production, it still has to import some of its oil. Located in an arid and sunny region, the country has an extreme continental climate. The Uzbek government is planning to install 300 solar collectors in different cities during 2015 and 2016 and has put state-owned utility Uzbekenergo in charge of implementing the programme.
