The International Energy Charter and the Kyrgyz Republic discuss Energy Efficiency

On the 27 June 2017, under the auspices of the Protocol on Energy Efficiency and Related Environmental Aspects (PEEREA) and at the request of the Kyrgyz Republic, the International Energy Charter embarked upon a three day mission with the objective of conducting an in-depth energy efficiency review of the Kyrgyz Republic. The review team - comprising of national experts, Mr Sergey Katyshev (Kazakhstan), Ms Kristel Noges (Estonia), Artan Leskoviku (Albania) and representatives from the Energy Charter Secretariat, Ms Sarah Keay-Bright and Oleksandr Antonenko - met with Deputy Chairman Mr Omorov of the State Committee on Industry, Energy and Subsoil of the Kyrgyz Republic (SCIES KR) and representatives from other national ministries, regulatory authorities and regulated companies. 

The in-depth Energy Efficiency Reviews analyse the broad economic and energy context of the country, patterns of energy use, energy efficiency policies and institutional frameworks. The fact-finding mission provided an opportunity to discuss issues and challenges with stakeholders of the country’s energy sector and will provide the basis for the recommendations to be presented in a report for adoption by the Energy Charter Conference (the International Energy Charter’s decision-making body) at its annual meeting later this year.
