On July 3, 2020, as a part of our joint project with the Ministry of Construction of the Republic of Uzbekistan and the Global Environment Facility (GEF) “Market transformation for sustainable rural housing in Uzbekistan” a practical training on energy efficiency technologies in construction of four-story apartment buildings in rural areas, was held in Karshi district of Kashkadarya region. The aim of the project is to provide the rural population of Uzbekistan with the improved, affordable and environmentally friendly living conditions.
The training was attended by representatives of the engineering company Kishlok Qurilish Invest and other construction companies of Kashkadarya region. The training presented modern construction technologies for using energy-efficient materials.
“This year four multi-storey buildings, 24 apartments each, are being built in the Kitab district of the Yangiobod region, and our company is one of the contractors, - said Samad Bakhodirov, the representative of the “Kurbonmurod Ashurov” specialized repair and construction enterprise, - Our participation in this practical training gave us a good opportunity to familiarize ourselves in detail and visually with the technologies which had not been known to us before. I am sure this will help the local builders to avoid mistakes when using energy-efficient building materials at their facilities and to improve the quality of the work performed. ”
Our project seeks to enrich and improve the activities of construction companies engaged in the construction of energy-efficient houses by conducting practical trainings for specialists of construction companies based on the study and analysis of the experts’ experience.
According to Zhonibek Askarov, the head of the department of the Kashkadarya regional branch of the engineering company “Kishlok Qurilish Invest”, in 2020 it is planned to build 45 multi-storey buildings with a total capacity of more than one thousand apartments on the territory of kishlaks in Kashkadarya, and the design of each of them provides for the use of energy-efficient building materials .
In 2019 in Uzbekistan 800 one-storey 3-room energy-efficient and low-carbon houses were built, including 176 in Samarkand, 185 in Surkhandarya, 206 in Fergana, 112 in Khorezm, and 121 in Bukhara regions. Within the framework of our joint project with the Ministry of Construction of the Republic of Uzbekistan and the Global Environment Facility (GEF) “Market transformation for sustainable rural housing in Uzbekistan” we have installed photovoltaic stations (PVS) with a capacity of 300 Watts for lighting needs, solar water heaters for hot water supply with a capacity of 200 litres in 10 rural model houses in five pilot regions of Uzbekistan. In 2020, the project will provide financial assistance for the installation of photovoltaic stations in 22 energy-efficient and low-carbon houses under construction in five pilot regions - Karakalpakstan, Kashkadarya, Bukhara, Namangan and Tashkent regions.
