U.S. Delivers Cutting-Edge Technology to Kyrgyzstan’s Renewable Energy Sector

The U.S. government – via the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Power Central Asia activity – has delivered a Light Detection and Ranging unit to Kyrgyzstan’s Ministry of Energy. As reported by the U.S. Embassy in Kyrgyzstan, accurate wind measurements provided by the cutting-edge technology will prove invaluable in the development of the country’s renewable energy projects and do much to attract investment. At the handover ceremony, Minister of Energy Taalaibek Ibrayev commented that the Light Detection and Ranging equipment will not only enhance the effective use of renewable energy sources, but also improve financial forecasts and accelerate the introduction of wind farms and wind energy in Kyrgyzstan. To support the initiative, the USAID Power Central Asia activity has trained local technical staff in the use of the wind measurement equipment. USAID/Kyrgyz Republic Mission Director, Kaya Adams, stated: “The Kyrgyz Republic can ensure that all future wind projects will be both strategically located and implemented with the highest precision for maximum efficiency.  This efficiency is crucial for making informed investment decisions that will sustainably shape the country’s energy future.” The USAID Power Central Asia activity is a five-year, regional energy initiative to improve the performance of Central Asia’s energy sectors by introducing more competitive means of producing clean energy, boosting energy security and resiliency through greater regional connectivity, and expanding cross-border electricity trade. Since the inception of Power Central Asia in 2020, USAID has leveraged $2.2 billion in clean energy investments and facilitated the installation of 2,241 Megawatts of clean energy capacity across the regions.
