Description The technical assistance (TA) subproject will have the following outcome: cross-border clean energy trade increased using high-level technology (HLT) by coordinating dispatch center (CDC) Energiya. The HLT will replace manual processes to allow CDC to operate in a real-time regime.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Diminished power trade in the region. Power trade among Central Asian countries has been declining since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. In 1990, 25,413 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) were traded among Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan. By 2010, the energy trade had decreased to 2,256 million kWh following the disconnection of Tajikistan from CAPS in 2009; it bottomed out in 2016 at 2,080 million kWh. The drop in energy trade has caused widespread power outages in Tajikistan in winters and increased fossil fuel use by Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan in summers. While hydropower exports from the Kyrgyz Republic have continued, the lack of hydropower from Tajikistan in summer has forced fossil fuel-rich countries to generate electricity using gas and oil instead of exporting those fuels. Meanwhile, Tajikistan has had to make substantial investments in generating capacity to produce electricity in winter, while being unable to export hydropower in summer. Tajikistan spills large amount of water annually which could have been used to generate about 5 billion 7 billion kWh of energy. Because of the limited electricity trading opportunities within CAPS, the Kyrgyz Republic had to find additional trading partners such as the People's Republic of China and Pakistan.

The consultants will be engaged in accordance with the ADB Procurement Policy (2017, as amended from time to time) and the associated project administration instructions and/or staff instructions.

JICA will be single sourced to organize a regional workshop in Tashkent, Uzbekistan to showcase experiences of Japan power sector especially in dealing with abrupt power changes due to natural calamities. Japan's experience in dealing with abrupt power changes due to natural calamities is importance as many of the CAPS countries experience power intermittency as well. JICA will organize presenters from Agency for Natural Resources and Energy under Ministry of Economy and Industry (ANRE) to share experience in policy setting regarding energy and natural resources; Japan Organization for Cross Regional Coordination of Transmission Operations (OCCTO) to share experience of cross-regional management of electrical businesses; Electricity and Gas Market Surveillance Commission (EGC) to share experience of monitoring of the electricity, gas and heat power trading market for the deregulation of energy market; Japan Electric Power Exchange (JEPX) to share experience in short and forward transactions and facilitation of the conflict mitigation; and TEPCO Power Grid to share dispatch center experience.

Procurement Procurement by the consultant will follow the ADB Procurement Policy (2017, as amended from time to time).
