Kyrgyzstan Plans to Harness Geothermal Energy for Sustainable Development

The Ministry of Economy and Commerce of Kyrgyzstan, in collaboration with the International Finance Corporation (IFC), has initiated a joint program to leverage geothermal energy for heating and air conditioning systems across the Kyrgyz Republic.

Daniyar Amangeldiev, Minister of Economy and Commerce of the Kyrgyz Republic, underscored the nation’s heightened focus on this sector at the national level. Emphasizing the significance of establishing a reliable and sustainable energy source, Amangeldiev highlighted the strategic importance of adopting geothermal methods.

Traditionally, countries such as the USA, Switzerland, France, Poland, Iceland, China, and Turkey have emerged as leaders in geothermal energy utilization.

In Kyrgyzstan, efforts will be made to develop preferential financing programs for the private sector to encourage the adoption of geothermal energy solutions.

Geothermal energy harnesses thermal energy from the Earth’s interior, either to generate electricity at geothermal power plants or directly for heating and hot water supply, marking a promising avenue for sustainable energy development in Kyrgyzstan.
