Scientific practical conference «Approaches to the development of electric power sector in Central Asia under high renewable energy penetration scenarios»

2018-08-10 - 2018-08-11

August 10-11, 2018

Tashkent, the Republic of Uzbekistan

 

Venue: Physical-Technical Institute SPA “Physics-Sun” Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Uzbekistan (further – AS of the RUz), 2B Bodomzor Yuli Street

Overview

The primary goal of the conference is to facilitate discussion on issues associated with the development of electric power industry in Central Asian countries with high penetration of the renewable energy. This conference offers a platform for researches, system designers and representatives of scientific society to review and discuss the most important aspects that should be considered when implementing renewable energy projects in Central Asian countries. The conference presents an overview of global and regional trends in the development of power industry using various innovative technologies, as well as renewable energy technologies.

The conference will facilitate and require active participation of country participants in exercises and group discussions to come up with a concept for the development of electric power sector with introduction of Renewable Energy Sources (further – RES) considering adaptation and specific needs of Central Asian countries. This event is being conducted under Regional RE Knowledge Sharing component of Power the Future Program.

Official launch of the Power the Future Program in the Republic of Uzbekistan with attendance of all the stakeholders and counterparts will precede before the conference.
