The Republic of Uzbekistan has adopted its first statute providing comprehensive regulation of its renewable energy sector, i.e. the Renewable Energy Law (the “RE Law”), which entered into force on 22 May 2019.
The country’s previous legislation in this area mainly consisted of different Presidential resolutions, often relating to particular projects. The country’s President, Shavkat Mirziyoyev, in his Development Strategy of Uzbekistan for 2017-2021, stressed the importance of moving toward greater use of renewable energy.
The RE Law covers not only generation of electricity from renewable energy, but also the production of the equipment that generates such energy.
