UzAssystem to support development of renewable energy, smart grid and energy storage projects in the Kyrgyz Republic.

As part of its commitment to supporting the global energy transition, engineering and digital services company UzAssystem has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the National Energy Holding Company of Kyrgyzstan, recognising a mutual interest in implementing joint energy projects in the country.

Kyrgyzstan is aiming to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 44 percent by 2030 and currently generates approximately 92% of its electricity through hydro power. UzAssystem will be bringing its expertise in energy systems to help the Republic bridge the remaining gap, which is currently fulfilled by other sources.

UzAssystem brings strong experience in developing low-carbon energy programmes in Central Asia through its activities in Uzbekistan, on solar power, wind power and grid projects, using advanced digital engineering techniques to build the country’s new energy infrastructure.

Under the terms of the agreement, which was signed at a ceremony at UzAssystem’s Tashkent headquarters in the presence of the Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan Deputy Energy Ministers, both parties will seek to cooperate in the following areas:

  • Project management, engineering design and consultancy for renewable energy projects including wind, solar and hydro power
  • Supporting the National Grid of Kyrgyzstan in the development of a digital twin and modelling the grid of the country
  • Supporting the development of energy storage systems
  • The digitalisation of energy systems including the development of a smart grid
  • The modernisation of electrotechnical norms and standards and adaptation of international standards
  • Supporting the energy sector of Kyrgyzstan in new uses of energy and driving a low-carbon energy transition

UzAssystem, established in 2019 with the Ministry of Energy of the Republic of Uzbekistan, is a subsidiary of Assystem Group, which is a major player in the global energy transition, with over 6,000 experts operating in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

UzAssystem Director Kerem Sadiklar said: “We are proud to be supporting Kyrgyzstan’s energy transition by bringing our well-established engineering and digital services capabilities to support the deployment of energy projects in the Republic. We look forward to working with the National Energy Holding Company to help develop a modern energy system fit for a low-carbon future.”
