Promoting the development of distributed solar photovoltaic systems in Uzbekistan
During last June, and through a kick-off meeting, OCA Global started a new project in Uzbekistan: "Promoting Distributed Solar Photovoltaic Systems for Enhanced Access to Energy (KSTA UZB 54408-001)".
OCA Global will provide technical assistance in the development of the government sector strategy for distributed solar systems in order to further improve the quality of electricity in remote regions and also to expand it through private investments. Specifically, we will provide technical and legal support to identify gaps in policy and regulatory frameworks, and provide practical implementation measures for the renewable energy auction mechanism that will allow greater participation of private investors in small-scale renewable energy projects.
Likewise, our team will participate in the installation of a distributed solar photovoltaic system of at least 20 kilowatts (kW), and in the reinforcement of institutional capacity through hands-on training in planning, design, development, implementation and operation of the distributed solar photovoltaic system and a study tour.
This project would help the country expand distributed solar photovoltaic systems and help improve access to energy and fulfill the government's commitment to mitigate the impacts of climate change.
