Uzbekistan - Advanced Electricity Metering Project (English)

The Government of Uzbekistan (the Government) identified the Advanced Electricity Metering (AEM)program, which aims to implement a country-wide AMI technology as a key action in the power sector to reduce power system losses and to improve transparency and accountability of the sector. It was also expected to encourage electricity consumers to use electricity more efficiently by providing transparent and fair pricing signals, and information of their electricity consumption. At appraisal, UE had already spent US$32 million to install electricity meters capable of accurately measuring and reporting interval demand for high- and medium-voltage customers, power generation plants, and transmission-distribution interfaces. Several pilot AEM projects, which UE had also already completed, demonstrated some reduction of commercial losses and increase in revenue in the pilot areas. Building on the experience of the pilot projects, the Government requested the World Bank (the Bank), the Asian Development Bank (ADB), and the Islamic Development Bank (IsDB) to finance the scaling-up of the AEM program.
