Energy intensity in Tajikistan is almost twice the world average, and three times higher than most developed countries, which means that Tajikistan needs three times more energy to produce one unit of GDP then highly developed countries. Over 95% of Tajikistan’s electrical energy is generated using hydro power. However, power transmission and consumption is complicated by difficult terrain. Tajikistan has limited reserves of fossil fuels, such as oil and gas. At present time, the government plans to meet future electricity needs primarily through further hydropower development.
Tajikistan is located between 37° and 41° of northern latitude in a zone of so-called “world’s solar belt”. The number of sunny days per year ranges from 270 to 300, duration of sunshine is 2,100 - 3,166 hours per year. The average total length of sunlight per year is 2,500 - 3,000 hours. The places that see a minimum amount of sunlight are- the mountain station of Dekhavz (2,097 hours) located in the upper reaches of the Zarafshan River at a height of 2,500 meters and on the Fedchenko Glacier that has a height of 4,169 meters and gets 2,217 hours. The maximum length of sunlight (more than 3,000 hours) is found in the southern part of the Republic (meteorological station Pyanj- 3,029 hours), and also in Eastern Pamir (meteorological station Karakul’- 3,166 hours).
The concept Concept of the Fuel and Energy Complex Development of Tajikistan outlines full access to energy for its population as a key objective, followed by the rehabilitation and modernisation of the existing energy infrastructure in order to increase efficiency and reduce losses. The government also emphasises the importance of reducing its hydrocarbon import dependency and supports the large-scale development of its abundant hydropower potential, both for internal energy security and for exporting to the growing energy markets to its south. Recent policy directions promote the development of other sources of renewable energy; however energy efficiency measures are still heavily focused on supply side, with very little improvement in demandside management. Energy subsidies and socially determined pricing mechanisms have failed to promote sound energy efficiency policies and measures.
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).
