|Title:||A Low-Carbon Road Map for the Power Sector in the Republic of Uzbekistan|
|Dates:||September, 2019 - September, 2020|
|Partner:||Navigant (UK) and Tractebel Engineering (Italy and Germany)|
The overall aim of the assignment is to define a low-carbon roadmap for the electricity generation sector in Uzbekistan through the modelling of the country''s energy system and its evolution scenarios until 2050. Up to three scenarios could be considered each reflecting an increased level of ambition in terms of sector''s GHG emissions. It is anticipated that one scenario will capture the current and planned policies in the country and model the possible evolution of the sector under a "business as usual" (BAU) type of technological development and penetration of low carbon generation sources (new build renewables or high efficiency thermal plants to displace older/less efficient existing assets). The other scenarios will progressively try to explore the possible evolution of the sector under more aggressive growth of renewables, high efficiency thermal plants, improved grid flexibility and storage.
The assignment, by critically analysing the different scenarios, will result in the development of a set of policy and technology recommendations to help understand the possible contribution of the sector towards the country''s NDC targets, help to identify the possible contribution of the sector for new targets post-2030 and provide clear indications about the priorities of investment and sustainable development for the sector towards a substantial decarbonisation in the mid to long- term future.
