Saturday 20 June 2020

DUSHANBE (Avesta news agency) — The volume of Tajik electricity exports to neighbouring countries has fallen by nearly 40% since the beginning of this year.

According to Avesta reports in the country’s energy sector, revenues from electricity sales to neighbouring countries for the five months of this year amounted to $15,832,000, down 39.9% from January-May last year. During the same period last year, more than $26.3 mln worth of electricity was sold abroad.

Meanwhile, the energy sector did not disclose data on the volume of electricity supply from neighbouring countries (Afghanistan and Uzbekistan).

In 2019, Tajikistan earned more than $91.3 mln from the export of electricity to neighbouring countries. In particular, 1,458.2 mln kWh of electricity worth $60.6 mln was exported to Afghanistan. Exports to Uzbekistan amounted to 1,425.1 mln kWh at a price of ¢2/kWh. Total electricity exports to Uzbekistan amounted to $28.5 mln.

However, according to Barki Tojik, the state electricity entity, Tajikistan plans to increase its exports to Afghanistan this year. According to the terms of the contract, Tajikistan will export 1.588 bln kWh of electricity to Afghanistan this year, almost 30 mln kWh more than in 2019.
