A Low-Carbon Road Map for the Power Sector in the Republic of Uzbekistan

Uzbekistan, 27 March 2019

Project Description

The Development Bank is planning to support the Government of the Republic of Uzbekistan in developing a roadmap for the progressive decarbonisation of its power generation sector in line with the mitigation and adaptation objectives it expressed in its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) and its sustainable development goals.

The roadmap will define a low-carbon pathway for the electricity generation sector in Uzbekistan through the modelling of the country's energy system and its evolution scenarios until 2050. Each scenario will outline the optimal power generation-mix in order to achieve a sustainable energy system by 2050. The assignment will include the evaluation of the regulatory, economic, and financial conditions associated with each of the scenarios, as well as any incremental policy recommendations considered crucial for ensuring the viability of the scenario.

The project 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,

  • support in the identification of new relevant sectorial targets post-2030 and

  • provide clear indications on investment priorities towards a substantial power sector decarbonisation in the mid to long-term.

Assignment Description

The Assignment will be undertaken along two workstreams. The first workstream will cover the development of the scenarios, and the second will involve targeted capacity building activities with Uzbekistan power sector stakeholders.

Workstream 1 – Development of a knowledge product on the low-carbon development pathway for the power sector in Uzbekistan

This workstream will involve all the activities required to produce the knowledge product. The knowledge product will be a report primarily targeted at decision makers in the government and power utilities that aims to transfer new knowledge in order to promote more informed policy making and power sector investment.

Workstream 2 – Targeted dissemination workshops and tools

The consultant shall identify specific audience(s) in Uzbekistan, and develop a dissemination plan to reach them. The Plan should outline delivery of:

  • Up to 3 in-country workshops / meetings / briefings;

  • A webinar;

  • Identification of opportunities to disseminate the results at relevant events (UNFCCC meetings, power and energy conferences, etc).
