Objectives:  

The aim of this year’s Forum is to:

 

Local context implications:

The countries in Central Asia are facing a number of challenges and constraints to deliver on carbon neutral energy systems that are based on innovative low- and zero-carbon technologies and modernized energy infrastructure:

  • the ongoing geopolitical crisis in Europe is currently disrupting the reliability of the energy system, impeding the energy flows and posing security risks  
  • the aging infrastructure with low industrial energy efficiencies does not comply with low-carbon, energy-efficient standards
  • the lack of science -based policy-making supported by data, research and holistic energy system approach
  • the supply chain disruptions may slow down or defer the transition to a more sustainable energy system
  • the trade barriers such as the EU Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) might impend the competitiveness of regionally manufactured products
  • the looming climate change and its impact on water resources is recognized as a significant threat to regional peace and security
