Workshop on Decarbonisation of Heating and Cooling Systems in Buildings in Uzbekistan
#News July 12, 2022
On 7 July, the Ministry of Energy and the World Bank held a workshop at the HYATT REGENCY Hotel to present the results of the study "Decarbonisation of Heating and Cooling Systems in Buildings in Uzbekistan (ESMAP)". The workshop was attended by a number of ministries and agencies, design institutions as well as representatives of the private sector.
The study was prepared by a consortium of consultants consisting of LDK Consultants Engineers and Planners SA (Greece), Juru Energy Limited (UK) and Bengt Dahlgren (Sweden). The consultants presented a technical report and analysis based on modelling and evaluation of pilot examples of the most efficient/environmentally friendly technologies for heating and cooling in public buildings, particularly schools, pre-schools and health care facilities. During the event, the participants were introduced to the Nearly Zero Energy Building (NZEB) concept for different categories of buildings in Uzbekistan considering different conditions (climate, occupancy, tariffs, baseline conditions, etc.).
At the end of the work, the consultants presented a Guidebook on the technical design and implementation of environmentally friendly heating and cooling options to realise the potential of the NZEB approach in buildings. The Guidebook is an advanced technical document for use by local companies involved in technical design. The document will also be useful for experts to prepare a detailed engineering design of environmentally friendly heating and cooling options according to the NZEB approach.
