Duishenbek Zilaliev: Draft Energy Strategy till 2030 is ready

Development of other energy sources will reduce the need for gas and petroleum products. This was announced today by the Chairman of the State Committee of Industry, Energy and Subsoil Use Duishenbek Zilaliev at the round table «Kyrgyzstan: Resources of the Future».

According to him, being located on a small territory, Kyrgyzstan has a sufficient number of natural resources. Only gold reserves amount to 586 tons, coal — to 1.5 billion tons. However, in order to develop industry, it is necessary to introduce new energy capacities. This will reduce the deficit in the heating season and will help to start exporting electricity.

He added that the draft Energy Strategy until 2030 is ready. It was sent for approval. Attention is also paid to energy accounting and control, since qualitative development is impossible without this. Moreover, Kyrgyzstan is dependent on gas and oil products. The development of other sources of energy will reduce the cost of their acquisition.
