“Green” Buildings in Uzbekistan:  Technologies, Guidelines and Incentives

In light of growing energy shortages, intensifying international competition over hydrocarbons, rising prices for fossil energy resources and mounting environmental problems, economic growth has to follow new paths that are significantly more energy-efficient than in the past. In view of the fact that one-third of global energy end use takes place within buildings, raising the energy efficiency of buildings has become one of the main areas of construction industry development during the past few decades. In Uzbekistan buildings account for half of total energy consumption (17 million tons of oil equivalent a year). Due to the use of outdated building codes and standards, obsolete heat-insulation materials and inadequate engineering designs, energy consumption in buildings is 2-2,5 times as high in Uzbekistan as in foreign countries.

The research project aimes at analyzing the ways to improve technologies and create incentives to increase energy efficiency of buildings.
