Bringing clean energy and co-benefits to remote communities in Tajikistan and Afghanistan

5 February 2021

A new report shows how clean, affordable and reliable electricity can be provided to thousands of people even in the poorest, most remote and difficult terrains. It illustrates how this simultaneously reduces energy poverty and carbon emissions while generating multiple co-benefits. Under a private public partnership established between AKFED and the Government of Tajikistan, Pamir Energy is responsible for developing, maintaining and operating all energy infrastructure and assets within the concession area of Viloyati Mukhtori Kuhistoni Badakhshon (Gorno-Badakhshan). In addition, Pamir Energy improved the availability of clean, affordable and reliable electricity for another 20,000 people in Afghanistan. In total it serves just over 41,000 people in Northern Afghanistan through the cross-border projects which now also extend into Ishkashim, Maimai, and Nusai districts. (Full report available here)
