Regional Power Sector Masterplan

Client: Asian Development Bank
Country: Central Asia
Start Date: 08 / 2019
End Date: ongoing

The Regional Power Sector Master Plan aims to identify and propose technical solutions to the bottlenecks which constrain the electricity flow for cross border trade. The projects identified under the master plan will increase energy security, energy efficiency and trade by optimizing integrated transmission and generation expansion between the four Central Asian republics (CARs) – i.e. Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan. The master plan will study the integrated development of the regional power system and identify long-term solutions to balancing demand and supply, taking into account current assets, demand projections, and trade opportunities. The study will address policy measures to promote security and efficiency.
