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 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.
