BISHKEK (February 27, 2015) — the preparation of Kyrgyzstan’s Strategy for development of Renewable Energy Sources (NS RES) was discussed at a recent working group meeting in the Ministry of Energy and Industry with the participation of the EU financed “Sustainable Energy Programme for Central Asia – CASEP” and representatives of local and regional institutions/organizations.
Ramona Lupu's insight:
The event also provided an opportunity for the 4th meeting of the Inter-institutional Technical Working Group for up-dating the National Energy Saving Program (NESP).
In order to update NESP, the Kyrgyz Ministry of Energy asked CASEP’s support in setting up an Inter-Agency Technical Working Group and the creation of a Technical Secretariat that would lead the development of an Action Plan.
“A draft-working plan on NESP was already submitted to the Kyrgyz Government for further public discussion and by the second week of March we estimate to publish the results of the Working Group as a new decree”
said Mr. Batyrkul Baetov, State secretary, Ministry of Energy and Industry of the Kyrgyz Republic.
On behalf of the Delegation of the EU to the Kyrgyz Republic, Ms. Mia-Fatima Dubois-Boussaid, Project Manager, expressed confidence in the Working Group’s efforts to set the practical targets for the NESP programme: “I wish you success in establishing an effective monitoring system for the process which will help guarantee the sustainability of this programme and also help the Donor Community to understand and further support this important process”.
Paul Moulin, Team Leader, CASEP named the future steps for the EU programme to support Kyrgyz NESP: “drawing up the Strategy for Renewable Energy Sources (RES), providing technical assistance in developing Energy Efficiency project priority pipelines and RES project priority pipelines, both in public and private sectors (i.e. Government budget related and non-budget related targets using large amounts of energy and priority energy generation through RES)”.

For the first time since 2007, the United States saw a rise in government restrictions on religion.
'Religious intolerance is on the rise worldwide, according to a new study from Pew's Forum on Religion and Public Life. The study finds that during the past year three-quarters of the world lived in countries with "high government restrictions on religion or high social hostilities involving religion." That's five percent higher than a year earlier.
