Power Sector Master Plan - Power Generation Efficiency Improvement Project

( ADB: Uzbekistan, August 2018 - June 2019, Client: Uzbekenergo, ADB, Budget: 856,829 EUR )

Title: Power Sector Master Plan - Power Generation Efficiency Improvement Project

Budget: 856,829 EUR

Country: Uzbekistan

Dates: August 2018 - June 2019

Partner: Mott MacDonald


In support of the Uzbekistan economic development vision, the project focuses on preparing a master plan to address peak electricity demand growth and system stability. This master plan will consider the long-term power demand and supply requirements, identify options for increased distributed generation and review investment and technology options to achieve the load growth.

  • Identify present demand and projected demand growth over the next 20 years in the major load centres

  • Assess potential energy sources for generation development in Uzbekistan, and compare the potential development costs of in-state generation versus the expected costs interstate purchase of electricity, including the transmission development costs over the long term

  • Identify power supply alternatives, including renewable energy options and the efficient use of power

  • Investigate alternative generation scenarios with the objective of reducing greenhouse gas emissions as well as define the priorities for energy efficiency and renewable energy use

  • Identify opportunities for reform within the power sector, including private sector participation, for capacity development, and international aid agency coordination

  • Update the existing Uzbekenergo's master plan to match present issues in the power sector

  • Develop the future transmission network in steps, taking into consideration the interconnection of future load centres and potential generation facilities

  • Develop Uzbekenergo's planning cell to update the master plan by providing on-the-job and classroom-based training for planning cell engineers in modern power system planning techniques and tools, as a capacity-building measure.
