Project of mini-energetic installations for rural people

The project objective is to introduce the alternative energy installations in different settlements of the country. The residents need energy. People need to heat their houses and prepare food and thus in order to meet their needs they don’t think and cut everything around. The new project is being initiated in order to stop it somehow.

The project territory consists of 5 target settlements in different regions of the Republic:

Kumyshkan settlement, Tashkent region. The buffer zone of Chatkal reserve.

Ukhum settlement, Djizak region. The buffer zone of Nuratau reserve.

Karapchi settlement, Samarkand region. The buffer zone of Zarafshan reserve.

Gilan settlement, Kashkadaryo region. The buffer zone of Ghissar reserve

Tallyk settlement, the Republic of Karakalpakstan. The buffer zone of Badai-tugai reserve.

The projects will promote the introduction of small-scale, cheap, alternative and energy efficient technologies. The introduction of these technologies in these districts will enable to reduce the consumption of firewood and will lead to more rational consumption of energy and, therefore to the decrease of greenhouse gas emission.

Besides the main objective of developing the simple and cheap energy for rural people, the project will directly contribute to the reduction of pressing both on reserve zones and on reserves in whole. In other words, the project will contribute to the preservation of biodiversity through the preservation of trees and shrubs.
