Juru to help develop the Small-Scale Renewable Energy Policy
#News June 07, 2021
We feel privileged to be working, together with Economic Consulting Associates, UK, on the project of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) as part of their effort to support the Government of Uzbekistan (GoU) in developing the tariff methodology, as well as the policy and the regulatory framework, for small-scale (up to 1 MW) renewable energy generation.
A comprehensive assessment is presently being conducted, with a focus on the initial exploratory research and reviews, the framing of the context for the new regulatory framework, and the establishment of key gaps and barriers that need to be addressed. This will be followed by the development of a model and methodology for the tariff valuation, tariff structures and billing rules for the approach selected. Based on the findings and international benchmarks, the team will develop a Roadmap for the sector’s development.
This development of a mechanism regulatory framework to establish tariffs for small-scale renewable energy generators is part of the GoU’s efforts to accelerate the economic recovery from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The development and timely implementation of tariffs for small-scale generators is going to contribute to increasing the resilience and sustainability of the power sector of Uzbekistan, enabling speedy economic recovery and preserving the momentum of reforms achieved in the sector in the recent years.
