Uzbekistan's New Concept of Renewable Energy

8 August 2011
Uzbekistan's New Concept of Renewable EnergyLights

www.en.trend.az of 8/8/2011 - Based on the reports by the Uzbek Center for Economic Research (CER), "...97 percent of oil and gas is in the country's primary fuel and energy resources, 2.3 percent is in coal, and 0.7 percent in hydropower.  Preservation of resource volumes, as well as volumes of natural gas and coal reserves in Uzbekistan, under current trends and consumption would yield only 20-30 more years of supplies; oil reserves have already run out.  The share of renewable energy use in Uzbekistan does not exceed one percent, though Uzbekistan has great potential for this. According to national experts, renewable energy potential in Uzbekistan is about 51 billion tons in oil equivalents, with technical potential of 17.982 billion tons in oil equivalents."
