Uzbekistan has the third highest energy intensity per GDP and the second highest carbon intensity per GDP in 2015 in all EBRD Countries of Operations. The thermal power plants fleet includes assets that were commissioned as early as in the 60s with low efficiencies and high emissions. As a result, in 2015 the power sector in Uzbekistan accounted for more than 40% of the CO2 emissions from fuel combustion.
Uzbekistan signed the Paris Agreement on Climate Change in April 2017 and ratified it on September 2018. The country expressed the intention , through its intended Nationally Determined Contributions (iNDCs), to reduce its CO2 emissions by 10% per unit of GDP by 2030 compared to 2010 level. The decarbonisation of the power sector could greatly contribute to meeting this target. It is however necessary to bring clarity over the steps that would allow the progressive decrease of power sector CO2 emissions, while meeting electricity demand and delivering sustainable development.
Uzbekenergo, a 100% state-owned vertically integrated power utility, requested the support of the EBRD in developing a low-carbon road map for the power sector in Uzbekistan.
The project will be undertaken along two workstreams. The first workstream will cover the development of the knowledge product, and the second will involve targeted capacity building activities with Uzbekistan power sector stakeholders.
Workstream 1 – Development of knowledge product on the low-carbon development pathway for the power sector in Uzbekistan
This workstream will involve all the activities required to produce the knowledge product. The knowledge product is a report primarily targeted at decision makers in governments and power utilities that aims to transfer new knowledge in order to promote more informed policy making and power sector investmet.
Workstream 2 – Targeted dissemination workshops and tools
e consultant shall identify specific audience(s) in Uzbekistan, and develop a dissemination plan to reach them. The Plan should outline delivery of:
- Up to 3 in-country workshops / meetings / briefings;
- Identificaton of opportunities to disseminate the results at relevant events (UNFCCC meetings, power and energy conferences, etc).
Any competitive selections for business opportunities relating to this project will be published on the EBRD's website: Consultancy Procurement Opportunities.

Project Complaint Mechanism (PCM)
The EBRD has established the Project Complaint Mechanism (PCM) to provide an opportunity for an independent review of complaints from one or more individuals or from organisations concerning projects financed by the Bank which are alleged to have caused, or likely to cause, harm.
Any complaint under the PCM must be filed in accordance with the timeframes prescribed in the PCM Rules of Procedure. You may contact the PCM Officer (at firstname.lastname@example.org) for assistance if you are uncertain as to the eligibility of your complaint.
