The CAREC Institute, the Asian Development Bank Institute and the Public Opinion Research Institute (Kazakhstan) are jointly organizing a hybrid workshop which will be hosted by the Turan International University with online and in-person participation on November 22, 2023, in Namangan, Uzbekistan. During the workshop, the joint research team will present preliminary findings from a survey of households on their access to energy in the Fergana valley.
The Fergana Valley spans over parts of the Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. All three countries are working toward a green energy transition by improving their electricity generation and distribution systems. The purpose of the study is to develop a set of recommendations for policymakers to further optimize access to energy for households, microenterprises and communities located in certain regions of the Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. The survey examines the seasonal characteristics of energy supply problems, including home heating system, central and autonomous heating, home cooling system, use of energy sources for cooking, electricity supply, energy saving, environmental protection and health, sources of information on renewable energy.
The workshop will bring together policymakers, academic researchers, and professional experts to discuss various aspects of energy access in the Ferghana Valley, as well as differences and similarities of the challenges with other CAREC countries.
