The ‘Promoting Energy Efficiency in Public Buildings in Uzbekistan’ project, jointly implemented by UNDP, the Global Environment Facility and the State Committee for Architecture and Construction of the Republic of Uzbekistan, is working to enhance the energy efficiency of buildings while reducing carbon dioxide emissions.
With Uzbekistan's growing demand for public services and a national programme to renovate outdated public buildings, UNDP has identified now as the ideal time to promote the use of energy-efficient architectural practices in the country of the Central Asian region. UNDP is working with international and national partners to promote the construction of 'green' buildings, and to reduce carbon emissions.
Most of Uzbekistan's public infrastructure was built during the epoch when approaches to standardised and energy inefficient building construction prevailed. As a result, such buildings account for half of Uzbekistan's annual energy consumption, and are in urgent need of reconstruction. This situation is compounded by Uzbekistan's population growth, and the pressure that this places on education and health services.
To encourage the utilisation of construction practices which use energy efficient designs and building methods, the government of Uzbekistan has begun a program for renovating and reconstructing public buildings. It is expected that 10.8 million m2 of new and reconstructed space will be delivered by 2015 within the sectors of public education and health, and this effort has been supported and furthered by the ‘Promoting Energy Efficiency in Public Buildings in Uzbekistan’ project.
