The Kyrgyz Republic is poised to transform its energy sector, harnessing its vast hydropower and solar potential to drive job-creating economic growth while achieving net zero emissions by 2050. Clean-energy projects in the pipeline will more than double the country's energy supply, providing uninterrupted electricity year-round and enhancing energy and water security across Central Asia.

The Government of the Kyrgyz Republic, in partnership with the World Bank and other development partners, is committed to developing a modern energy sector that attracts private investment and supports the country's goal of becoming an upper middle-income economy by 2040. The World Bank's new Country Partnership Framework prioritizes energy as one of the key sectors for building a more competitive and resilient economy.

In line with this vision, the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic and the World Bank, with support from the CAWEP, ESMAP, and the Austrian Government, are co-organizing the Kyrgyz Republic International Energy Investment Forum on June 10-11 in Vienna, Austria. This high-level event aims to showcase progress on energy sector reforms and discuss key investment opportunities in the Kyrgyz Republic, including the Kambarata-1 Hydropower Plant Project, in order to leverage financing to accelerate the clean energy transition, enhance regional connectivity, and improve water-energy management across Central Asia.
