Renewable energy grid integration in Central Asia.
The re-integration of national power systems is essential for the creation of an open and competitive Regional Electricity Market in Central Asia. Better flexibility of the energy system will enable the deployment and integration of renewable energy (wind power and solar power) projects. This will not only enhance supply security and reliability; it will propel regional economic growth by creating significant business opportunities and attracting private investment into the power sectors of all five Central Asian countries. To help the region achieve this vision, USAID is providing technical, legal/regulatory and market assistance and capacity building to expedite creation of the market with improved transmission infrastructure, commercial pricing, and improved trust between the partners.
