Carbon neutrality is a term that means that a company has reduced its emissions of carbon dioxide and its counterparts from its operations to zero or offset these emissions through carbon-negative projects.
The Ministry of Energy, in collaboration with the Ministry of Investment and Foreign Trade, with support from the EBRD and the Japanese government, has engaged a consortium of international experts (Corporate Solutions, Tractebel and Guidehouse) to develop a roadmap to explore the possibility of creating a carbon-neutral electricity generation sector in Uzbekistan by 2050. This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Energy.
The power generation sector is the backbone of the economy and is responsible for a significant share of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions. Thus, decarbonization of electricity generation will play a critical role in achieving Uzbekistan’s climate goals.
The roadmap concludes that Uzbekistan can achieve zero carbon energy as early as 2050, both from a technical and economic point of view.
The university is committed to being carbon neutral in line with the big greenhouse gas protocols. And I am ready with my own development, including the development of electric vehicles, to facilitate the early transition to a carbon-neutral principle.
