Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

The electricity sector of Central Asia, developed during the former Soviet Union time, was primarily designed to optimize the use of water resources with electricity being a secondary product. Power plants and transmission lines were built without the consideration of the administrative boundaries, which later became national borders. After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, the energy ministers of the Central Asian states faced a new challenge of autonomously operating national power grids that were not designed to do so. In addition to technical complexities, the energy sector in these countries followed different development paths.

The proposed ADB intervention intends to address various sector issues including refurbishment of the power generations, construction of new transmission assets, energy efficiency, renewable energy generation and introduction of modern technologies.
