  • Energy Efficiency Capacity Building in Uzbekistan; Capacity Building, Methods and Tools

ENSI - Energy Saving International participated in the official Norwegian delegation visiting Uzbekistan in November 2009. During this visit, the importance of, and need for, improved energy efficiency in Uzbekistan was confirmed and underlined in meetings with a number of Ministries and organisations. The authorities expressed that they were eager to learn from the Norwegian knowledge and experience in this field, and get access to methods, tools and capacity building programmes previously implemented in a number of CIS countries by ENSI.

The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs would like to expand the cooperation with Uzbekistan, and ENSI was contracted to develop a tailored energy efficiency capacity building programme for Uzbekistan.


During the autumn of 2012, the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed their financial support to the project. The Ministry of Economy of the Republic of Uzbekistan was appointed as National Coordinator in March 2013, and the MoU between the Ministry of Economy of the Republic of Uzbekistan and ENSI was signed during the summer.

The project includes the following main activities:

1.     Adjustment and development of methods, tools, software, etc. for Energy Auditing and Certification of Buildings to comply with the latest Uzbek laws, regulations and standards (in cooperation with Uzbek authorities, experts, University professors, etc.);

2.     Implementation of a “learning by doing”, three session capacity building programme for training of energy auditors, professors, teachers, etc.;

3.     Organising of a study trip to Norway;

4.     Presentation of Norwegian and European energy efficiency technologies, solutions, measures and best practices;

5.     Managerial support for implementation of 2-3 energy efficiency demonstration projects;

6.     Implementation of a “training of trainers” programme, continued training for some of those trained in the first training programme (activity 3 above);

7.     Guidance and support to the trained trainers when they are providing training of more Uzbek energy auditors; and

8.     University cooperation; providing guest lectures and methods, tools and software to be included into the University Curriculum.

  • Energy Efficiency Capacity Building in Uzbekistan; Pre-project

The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs would like to expand the cooperation with Uzbekistan, and contracted ENSI to do a pre-project, with the following main aim: 

  • Organising of energy efficiency seminar and University guest lectures. 
  • Development of tailored capacity building programmes supporting improvement of energy efficiency inUzbekistan, coordinated with programmes and plans of national authorities and other international organisations and donors.

The pre-project includes two fact finding missions to Tashkent (April and June 2011) for meetings with key stakeholders to get an updated overview of existing energy efficiency programmes and the plans of Uzbek authorities and universities and of international organisations and donors.

 

Based on the findings from these visits, a three year energy efficiency capacity building programme might be developed.

  • New Norwegian Energy Efficiency and Cleaner Production Capacity Building Programme – Pre-project

The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs wanted to initiate a new capacity building programme on energy efficiency and cleaner production in Central Asia. Since Kazakhstan was already supported by Norway, a Project Manager of the UN ECE Energy Efficiency 21 Project recommended Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan among the remaining Central Asian countries.

 

To assess the needs, identify potential partners and discuss the content of the future bilateral co-operation, the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs contracted ENSI to conduct a pre-project. As a part of this pre-project, a visit to Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan took place together with the Project Manager of the UN Project and representatives of the Norwegian Embassy in Moscow.

 

The pre-project recommended start up in Kyrgyzstan, and the long-term programme was started up during the autumn of year 2002.
