Uzbekistan targets 27 GW of renewable capacity, 40% in power generation by 2030

Uzbekistan’s lawmakers have set a target to reach 27 GW of renewable energy capacity and 40% of electricity production from renewables by 2030. This new objective voted by the Uzbek Senate would allow savings of natural gas amounting to 25 bcm and a reduction of emissions of 34 MtCO2.

This amendment to Uzbekistan’s renewable energy legislation thus sets more ambitious renewable goals for the country. Under previous targets, Uzbekistan aimed to reach a 25% renewable share by 2030 and planned to reach 12 GW of solar and wind capacity by 2030.

As of 2022, renewable capacity including hydro made up about 13% of Uzbekistan’s installed capacity with 2.3 GW (but solar and wind accounted for just about 1 % with only 253 MW). As for electricity production, renewables including hydro made up 7% of the country’s power generation in 2022 with 5.3 TWh (the share of wind and solar is negligeable however).
