The potential of renewable energy sources in Kyrgyzstan is estimated at 840.2 million tons of standard fuel per year. This is reported in the materials of the State Committee of Industry, Energy and Subsoil Use.
The main types of renewable energy sources in the republic are solar energy, small rivers and water currents, wind energy, geothermal energy and biomass energy.
So, the potential resources of renewable energy sources in Kyrgyzstan will be:
– hydro objects – 5-8 billion kWh per year;
– wind facilities – 44.6 million kWh;
– Solar facilities – 490 million kWh;
– biomass – 1.3 billion tons of equivalent fuel.
At the moment, the practical use of RES in Kyrgyzstan is about 1%.
