The Samarkand 100 MW Solar Photovoltaic Power Plant project aims to increase renewable energy generation and reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) in Uzbekistan. The Project has three main components: i) construction of a 100 megawatt (MW) grid-connected crystalline photovoltaic power plant with single-axis tracking system; ii) institutional capacity building on financial, technical, and regulatory issues on solar energy and grid integration; and, iii) project management and supervision support. The final part stage of the project included the NAMA registration following UNFCCC guidelines.
