Uzbekistan launches rebate program for rooftop PV
Uzbekistan’s Ministry of Energy has introduced provisions to support rooftop PV, solar heaters and energy-efficient gas burners.   The program will grant homeowners a 30% rebate of the initial cost of buying and deploying a PV system up to UZS3 million ($318). For solar heaters and gas burners, the maximum grants will be UZS1.5 million UZS200,000, respectively.   The new regime will also grant compensation to rooftop system buyers to cover the interest cost of loans taken from commercial banks to purchase arrays.   The rules exempt businesses and homeowners from paying property tax on installations and also waive land tax for systems with a generation capacity no larger than 100 kW for ten years after commissioning. For off-grid projects, exemption from land tax will be granted for three years.   From 4 MW to 1 GW   The program is part of the government’s plan to ensure a quarter of the electricity generated comes from renewables by 2030. Uzbekistan wants to develop large scale solar plants with a combined capacity of 1 GW with the support of the International Finance Corporation, the private finance arm of the World Bank Group.   The nation currently has only a 100 MW solar project under development, in the Navoi region. That facility was tendered by state-owned energy company Uzbekenergo JSC in February. Canadian solar developer SkyPower Global is planning 1 GW of large scale PV plant capacity in the regions of Tashkent, Samarkand, Navoi, Jizzakh, Surkhandarya and Kashkadarya.   According to the latest statistics published by the International Renewable Energy Agency, Uzbekistan had installed PV capacity of only 4 MW at the end of last year.

Uzbekistan opens tendering process for 200 MW solar park
Uzbekistan’& rsquo; s Ministry of Energy has actually issued a demand for expressions of interest for the development and building and construction of a 200 MW solar park inSherabad, in the Surkhandarya province in the far southeast of the country. The project, which will include construction of a 220 kV substation and a 52km transmission line, is crucial for a region which depends on electricity imports, according to the Uzbek government. “& ldquo; The project website is 46km west of the Surkhan substation which is the primary hub for electrical power supply within the Surkhandarya region and for electrical energy exports, for this reason being the perfect location for power offtake from the project,” & rdquo; mentioned the energy ministry. An ask for credentials require the project is anticipated in March and the ask for propositions is slated for May. The reactions to EOI are due by 22 Feb 2020 The tender will be performed with the assistance of the Asian Advancement Bank, which will function as deal advisor. The job is part of the 1 GW solar program established by the government and the loan provider. In October, Uzbekistan and the International Financing Corporation (IFC) economic sector arm of the World Bank revealed plans to roll-out as much as 900 MW of solar energy generation capacity by means of public-private collaborations through a separate program. The IFC also helped the Uzbek federal government design and tender its very first such project, which drew in 11 pre-qualified designers and 5 quotes. In September, the federal government began a subsidy program for roof PV and exposed strategies for a 40 MW solar park in Namangan, in eastern Uzbekistan. The nation’& rsquo; s set up solar capacity stays minimal, with less than 10 MW at the end of 2018 according to the International Renewable Resource Agency.

Uzbekistan announces tender for up to 900 MW of solar
Uzbekistan and the International Finance Corporation (IFC) have announced plans to roll-out as much as 900 MW of solar power generation capacity via public-private partnerships (PPPs) just weeks after the former Soviet republic awarded its first such solar project to UAE-based developer Masdar. In the months ahead, the Uzbek government – which wants 5 GW of solar capacity by 2030 – plans to launch a PPP tender for two solar projects with generation capacities of up to 200 MW each, followed by a second, 500 MW round. This month, the authorities selected a bid from a Masdar to install 100 MW of solar capacity for “a highly competitive tariff of just” $0.027/kWh, according to an online statement made by the IFC, the private finance arm of the World Bank Group. Rapid progress “The first solar PPP has set a benchmark for solar prices in our country,” said Shukhrat Vafaev, deputy minister of investment and foreign trade for Uzbekistan and World Bank Group alternate governor. “We are confident that with the help of IFC we can replicate this success in the next rounds.” The IFC, a transaction adviser in the program, helped the Uzbek government design and tender its first PPP, which attracted 11 pre-qualified developers and five bids. The organization described the level of investor interest as “groundbreaking in a country where the energy sector was traditionally state run”. The World Bank is working with the Uzbek government on tariff reform, renewable project development and investment strategy. The official launch of the 900 MW tender continues recent developments in Uzbekistan’s growing PV sector. In September, the government kicked off a subsidy program for rooftop PV and revealed plans for a 40 MW solar park in Namangan, in eastern Uzbekistan. However, the country’s installed solar capacity remains negligible, with less than 10 MW by the end of last year, according to the International Renewable Energy Agency.

Uzbekistan pitches for 5 GW of solar by 2030
Uzbekistan's Ministry of Energy has actually increased its solar generation capability target by 1 GW as well as brought the target date ahead a year. The Concept Note released by the ministry, which lays out prepare for electrical power supply approximately 2030, laid out an aspiration to safeguard 5 GW of solar by that day. The majority of the solar project capability is anticipated ahead in the form of 100-500 MW centers around Jizzakh, Samarkand, Bukhara, Kashkadarya and also Surxondaryo, according to the file, with various other locations readied to include 50-200 MW plans. Projects with a generation ability of 300 MW or even more will certainly have storage space related to them to control lots, according to the federal government. A collection of intended tenders as much as 2022 will certainly begin with a 1.4 GW purchase round this year which will certainly intend to safeguard 600 MW of PV capability throughout Jizzakh, Samarkand as well as Surxondaryo plus 800 MW in various other areas. The tender program, which will certainly honor effective designers 25-year power acquisition arrangements, will certainly be backed by worldwide loan providers consisting of the Asian Development Bank, World Bank as well as European Bank for Reconstruction as well as Development. The federal government is intending 1-20 MW solar parks to power sector as well as likewise smaller sized installments in remote locations consisting of eco-tourism websites. With power need in Uzbekistan anticipated to greater than double from its existing 12.5 GW to 23 GW by the end of the years, solar will certainly be anticipated to add 5 GW of the expected 10.5 GW increase with wind power providing a more 3 GW. The country had just 4 MW of mounted solar generation capability at the end of the year, according to International Renewable Energy Agency numbers. In October, the federal government presented stipulations to sustain roof PV, solar heating units and also energy-efficient burner. A 200 MW solar project is hurting in the southeastern area of Surxondaryo and also 2 even more 200 MW projects are prepared in Samarkand as well as Jizzakh.
