      A.3Description of mitigation action

      The NAMA “Solar Energy Development in Uzbekistan” presents a specific action plan for the deployment of solar energy in Uzbekistan from 2015 to 2030, adapted to the country's energy needs and based on the Roadmap for the development of solar energy in the Republic of Uzbekistan which was approved by Uzbekistan’s Government.

      Solar energy deployment in Uzbekistan will help meet demand while avoiding burning fossil fuels. The use of solar energy technologies implies the reduction of greenhouse (mainly carbon dioxide CO2 and mono-nitrogen oxides NOx) and prevention of toxic (sulfur dioxide SO2 and particulates) gas emissions when compared with thermal power plants. Furthermore, its implementation will help the industrial development of the country, create new jobs, improve access to electricity and directly mitigate climate change.

  • F Estimated emission reductions
    • F.1Amount

      This amount has to be in units of MtCO2e (Million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent) or MtCO2e/yr (Million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent per year)

      F.3Additional information (e.g. if available, information on the methodological approach followed)
  • G Other indicators
    • G.1Other indicators of implementation
      • Installed capacity. For small facilities and commercial plants.
      • Electricity generated. For small facilities and commercial plants.
      • Meeting pre-existing government targets.
      • Policy impact indicator. Promote the principles of good governance and using impact assessment procedures and monitoring and indicator systems as aids to policy integration and effective policy-making.
      • Deployment status indicator.
  • H Other relevant information
    • H.1Other relevant information including co-benefits for local sustainable development

      Benefits for the environment:

      • Reclamation of degraded land
      • Reduction of the required transmission lines of the electricity grids
      • Reduction of pollution
      • Decrease gas leaks (part of solar energy replace energy produced by conventional natural gas plants)

      From a socio-economic viewpoint the benefits of the exploitation of solar energy technologies comprise:

      • Increase of the regional/national energy independency
      • Provision of significant work opportunities
      • Diversification and security of energy supply
      • Support of the deregulation of energy markets
      • Acceleration of the rural electrification in developing countries
      • Uzbekistan, due to its background, already acquired experience in solar technology and its strategic situation in Central Asia could become a regional knowledge, technology, and energy and production hub.
      Even though the Roadmap focus on large scale power plants. In Uzbekistan, remote regions require different assistance: fresh water supply, house heating and stable electricity supply to improve and guarantee the quality of life.
