  • The Government has introduced new legislation to attract foreign investments, particularly for renewable and energy efficiency projects.
  • Uzebekenergo, the former power utility, was unbundled in 2019 with the creation of 3 new companies. The national gas company, Uzbekneftegaz, was also reorganised.
  • Uzbekistan plans to partly privatize the energy and mining sectors.
  • Natural gas accounts for 85% of the power mix.
  • Gas resources are considerable and gas production ranges between 55 bcm/year and 65 bcm/year since 2000.
  • Energy prices for domestic consumers are regulated. Household electricity prices are more subsidised than industrial prices and lower than in neighbouring countries.
  • Energy intensity is decreasing very rapidly.
  • Gas represents 85% of the country's total energy consumption.
  • Uzbekistan is developing its renewables capacity, especially solar, and has two projected nuclear reactors.
  • The commissioning of the fourth line of the Central Asia-China gas pipe has been postponed to 2022.

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    A Ministry of Energy was set up in February 2019 and is in charge of implementing governmental policies and regulations in the whole energy sector, improving the tariff policy, and developing public-private partnerships. It restructured the two state-run companies, Uzbekenergo for electricity and Uzbekneftegaz for gas, in 2019.

  • Energy Companies


    UNG, Uzbekneftegaz,astate-controlled company, was reorganised in 2019 by merging different subsidiaries in the gas and oil upstream and downstream activities.

  • Energy Supply


    Oil production, which fell by nearly 9%/year between 2000 and 2011, has been stabilising since then at around 3 Mt (+4.2% in 2019 to 3.2 Mt).

  • Energy Prices


    Electricity prices fell by 55% between 2016 and 2018, but residential prices have been stabilizing since then at around US$1.5c/kWh (2020), whereas industrial prices have surged by 27%/year to US$4.5c/kWh in 2020.

  • Energy Consumption

    In 2019, the total energy consumption per capita was about 1.4 toe, while the electricity consumption per capita was over 1 600 kWh.

    Uzbekistan's energy intensity was among the highest in the world, but is now decreasing very rapidly (-6.6%/year since 2000).

  • Issues & Prospects

    As part of its "Economic Development Vision 2030", the Government plans to transform Uzbekistan into an industrialized middle-income country by achieving a per capita income of US$6 500 by 2030 and US$8 500 by 2040.
