abstract

This article reviews the introduction of nuclear and renewable energy in Central Asia. It delves into the motivations and challenges in this development. Although, Central Asia has a huge potential in nuclear, due to uranium resources, and wind and solar powers, due to geography, the shift to these sources will be minimal. Central Asian states will still rely on hydrocarbons and coal at least till 2050. However, the planning and the implementation of projects on “green energy” will have geopolitical and economic impact.
