Kyrgyzstan: Central Asia power grids discuss cooperation plans
May 22, 2007 BBC Monitoring
The Kyrgyz energy system is currently operating in parallel with energy systems of Central Asia, Kazakhstan and Russia. The parallel operation of the energy systems is increasing the reliability of electricity supplies to consumers and allowing the power engineering systems to help one another in emergencies and work more economically. This has been said at a regular session of the coordination commission of the Electricity Council of Central Asia in Bishkek.
The session was attended by deputy heads of the region's energy systems, such as the Kazakh KEGOS [Kazakhstan Energy Grid Operating System] joint-stock company, the Kyrgyz NES [National Electric Networks] open joint-stock company, the Tajik Barq-i Tojik open joint-stock holding company, the Uzbekenergo [Uzbek energy] state joint-stock company and the Energiya [Energy] unified control centre [of Central Asia].
