Energy efficiency of buildings in Uzbekistan: energy saving capacity, direction of reforms and expected effects

Due to acutely continental climate (high temperatures in summer, requiring air-conditioning, and low in winter, requiring heating), almost half of all energy consumption in Uzbekistan (24.1 million tons of oil equivalent per year) is accounted for the buildings. A key issue in the energy sector is a high risk of rising gap between the demand for energy resources for residential, commercial and public buildings and the possibility of offering these resources in relevant conditions of consumption.

The main aim of the research is to identify the key areas and mechanisms of transition to energy-efficient growth model for the buildings sector.
