The reported annual average wind speed in Kyrgyzstan ranges from 4 m/s to 5 m/s at 30 meters above ground level. The total wind potential is estimated at 1,500 MW installed capacity. Electricity generation in Kyrgyzstan is dominated by hydropower, which provides more than 80% of total electricity output. Hydropower plants along the Naryn cascade, with installed capacity of 2,870 MW, account for about 80% of Kyrgyzstan’s total generation capacity. The Toktogul power station, with 1,200 MW of installed capacity, is Central Asia’s largest hydropower station, and only multi-year hydropower water storage facility. Thus reliance on hydropower leaves the country vulnerable to changes in water levels along the Naryn cascade.
These programmes set out policies for the country’s political, economic and social development. The National Energy Programme and the Strategy for the Fuel and Energy Sector Development for 2008-2010, with an outlook to 2025, are the country’s key long-term policies for the energy sector. These programmes aim at improving the budget deficit by fast-tracking large energy projects, improving state asset management and increasing the effectiveness of social policies for poverty alleviation. The government’s declared priorities in the energy sector are improved energy security, energy savings and sustainable development. However, seasonal volatility of hydropower production, reliance on hydrocarbon import and high losses in aged infrastructure remain key challenges. The Energy Ministry is currently working towards the completion of a longerterm energy sector strategy, with plans to introduce a new legislative package to support revitalising the energy sector with stricter measures on energy tariffs and reforming its electricity, natural gas and coal industries.
The country’s main strategy to meet the growing need of power is to reduce the energy dependency by increasing the energy efficiency, increased use of renewable resources and connecting to the power infrastructure of Commonwealth Independent States (CIS).
