Tashkent, Uzbekistan – Experts from the countries of Central Asia (CA) and the European Union (EU) attended the Regional Technical Workshop “ESCO – from theory to implementation practice”. This workshop was organised jointly by the Agency for Strategic Reforms under the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan, the Fund for Reconstruction and Development of the Republic of Uzbekistan, and the EU’s SECCA project.

Energy Service Companies (ESCOs) play a pivotal role in promoting sustainable energy by enhancing energy efficiency (EE) and integrating renewable energy (RE) solutions. ESCOs provide comprehensive energy solutions, including energy audits, project design, financing, implementation, and ongoing maintenance. By guaranteeing energy savings and improving energy performance, ESCOs help reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. This not only contributes to environmental sustainability but also provides significant economic benefits by lowering energy costs and fostering the adoption of innovative energy technologies. Through their expertise and financial models, ESCOs drive the transition towards a more sustainable and energy-efficient future.

The participants reviewed and discussed the main elements of the ESCO&SuperESCO, including examples from different industries, and the experience and lessons learned of the EU Member States, Energy Community Contracting Parties, and CA countries in promoting the ESCO concept and practical implementation of projects. The workshop increased awareness of the wide range of stakeholders about the ESCO&SuperESCO models of financing EE.

The workshop was followed by a Roundtable on perspectives of ESCO in Uzbekistan, which took place on 27 June 2024.
