The objective of the NAMA is to deploy solar energy in the country.
Activities: (2016 - 2030)
The NAMA “Solar Energy Development in Uzbekistan” presents a specific action plan for the deployment of solar energy in Uzbekistan, adapted to the country's energy needs and based on the Roadmap for the development of solar energy in the Republic of Uzbekistan which was approved by Uzbekistan’s Government.
Solar energy deployment in Uzbekistan will help meet demand while avoiding burning fossil fuels. The use of solar energy technologies implies the reduction of greenhouse (mainly carbon dioxide CO2 and mono-nitrogen oxides NOx) and prevention of toxic (sulfur dioxide SO2 and particulates) gas emissions when compared with thermal power plants.
This NAMA forecasts that in the next 15 years the production of solar energy in Uzbekistan will rise up to 3.4 TWh/year.
Implementation activities will include:
- Development and construction of six solar plants. This includes the solar plant already under development in Samarkand.
- Development of local capabilities and technology improvement in Uzbekistan.
- Land and associated infrastructures (water, grid improvement, access, etc.)
- Improvement of R&D infrastructures, demonstration projects and test bed facilities
- Rural electrification projects
- Capacity building

Indicators used will be:
- Installed capacity for small facilities and commercial plants
- Electricity generated for small facilities and commercial plants
- Meeting pre-existing government targets
- Policy impact indicator to promote the principles of good governance and using impact assessment procedures and monitoring and indicator systems as aids to policy integration and effective policy-making
- Deployment status indicator.
