“Solar energy, like other types of renewable energy, is becoming quite competitive, one of the cleanest types and methods of obtaining energy.”
Islom Abduganievich Karimov
International Solar Energy Institute (abbreviation “ISEI”) was created on the initiative of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan according to the Decree PD-4512 from 01.03.2013 “On measures for further development of alternative energy sources.”
It also identifies the main tasks and activities of ISEI:
- Implementation of high-technological developments in the field of industrial use of solar energy;
- Preparation of proposals for the practical use of solar energy potential in various sectors of economy and social sphere on the basis of advanced and costeffective technologies;
- Implementation of applied research related to the use of solar energy in various industries, including the technology of synthesis of special materials and heat treatment;
- Coordination of documentation on major projects in the field of solar energy.
On the same day, for the development of the Decree it was passed the Resolution of the President of Uzbekistan № PR-1929 from 01.03.2013 “On establishment of the International Solar Energy Institute”, which:
Defined the ISEI Council (supreme body) composed of:
- The President of the Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Uzbekistan – Chairman of the Board
- The Chairman of “Uzbekenergo” – Deputy Chairman of the Board
- The Executive Director of the Fund for Reconstruction and Development
- Deputy Minister of Economy
- Deputy Minister of Finance
- The Chairman of the association “Uzeltexsanoat”
- Permanent Representative of ADB in Uzbekistan (by agreement)
B. the ISEI structure consists of five scientific and technical departments, the main function of which is to carry out research work, as well as the department of development of industrial production in order to bring the obtained results of scientific research to the level of their implementation.
C. following rights are assigned to ISEI:
- To attract the research staff of research institutes and centers of higher educational institutions of the Republic, as well as foreign scientists and specialists; Conclude contracts for research and training of personnel with international organizations, including funds;
- To conclude contracts for research and training with international organizations, including funds;
3 . To carry out the test and certification of installations of solar technologies in accordance with the rules of the National Certification System of the Republic of Uzbekistan;
Most of the world countries have come to the conclusion that renewable energy and especially solar power – one of the ways for the long-term energy strategy. The main arguments in favor of solar energy are:
- Enhancing energy security;
- The fastest and cheapest way to solve the problems of energy (electricity, heat, fuel) remote from the electric networks of consumers, to improve the economic and social situation of the population of these areas;
- Does not require a large lump-sum investment, as projects are implemented in a short time, as opposed to the 5-10 years period of construction of the traditional energy, which could be attractive to private capital;
- Reduction of energy losses, deficit reduction of power and energy in the deficit power, i.e., the elimination of obstacles to the development of production and creating jobs;
- Lack of potential danger of man-made disasters, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and pollution.
Our country has declared that it intends to become a center of research in the field of solar energy in Central Asia and a platform implementation of their latest achievements in the economy of the country and the region.
Establishment of the International Solar Energy Institute (ISEI) is the basis for the core of the implementation of these plans.
According to the statistic information of Asian Development Bank Uzbekistan has great potential of renewable energy, especially solar energy.
Our republic stated that it intends to become a center of scientific research in the field of solar energy in the Central Asian region and a platform for introducing their latest achievements in the economy of the country and the region.
The establishment of the International Solar Energy Institute (IISE) is the basis, the core for the implementation of these plans.
Today ISEI emerging:
- To form the scientific potential of the institute, training the staff;
- At the area Tashkent region ISEI laboratory for testing and certification of solar technologies is created, issues are solving on the creation of pilot production;
- Under the ISEI test site 50 hectares land area is allocated near Tashkent city for the creation and testing of various solar technologies, including foreign. Designing works on the creation of landfill are completed.
The staff of the Institute is determined to fulfill all the tasks assigned to it.
By registering the MISE website we hope that we will be able to more fully and qualitatively supply interested parties about our activities, to show that we are now able to provide services in the field of solar energy.
