Abstract

Tajikistan is a mountainous country, with hydropower resources which are unique by their reserves. However, having a sharply continental climate, the country has a distinct shortage of energy in autumn and winter and a limited sales market in spring and summer time. The special role of energy in economic development and social significance of the population’s access to the energy carriers predetermine a particular relevance of prediction of energy security threats and search of security measures. The paper substantiates threats of the energy security of the national economy, proposes mechanisms for their lessening and neutralization. The authors give proof of the potential energy business development in the direction of increasing exports of electric energy (power) and the strengthening of geopolitical importance of the Tajik water and energy sector. Keywords: power engineering, energy, security, resources, indicator, wear, power, electricity tariff, potential, deficit, sustainability, management.
