The Energy Sector Coordinating Committee worked on an action plan to implement the Regional Energy Strategy, focusing initially on electricity and water linkages in Central Asia and export opportunities to Asia.
Within this context, three core topics were discussed: energy demand/supply balances and infrastructure constraints; regional transmission, dispatch and regulatory aspects; and energy-water linkages. The committee agreed on the framework and deliverables of a 3-year action plan, to be developed and updated every year, and that would identify and initiate activities beyond this timeframe.
On the second day, the World Bank hosted a workshop to further explore technical issues related to energy-water linkages. The workshop shared lessons from North America, Africa, Europe, Central, South and East Asia.
The Executive Committee of the International Fund for Saving the Aral Sea (EC-IFAS), the Scientific Information Center of the Interstate Coordination Water Commission (SIC-ICWC), and the Central Asia Coordinating Dispatch Center (CDC) also participated in the workshop, notably discussing issues related to the integration of energy and water activities.
