Policy Brief # 1, 2007. Options for Continuing Energy Reforms in Uzbekistan
According to most estimates, world fossil reserves make up more than 1 trillion barrels of oil, around 168 trillion cubic meters of natural gas and 1 trillion tons of coal. In addition, there are more than 3 million metric tons of uranium available for nuclear power. However, these resources are unevenly distributed across the world. For example, the developing world has a much greater share of natural gas reserves at 77 percent, oil reserves at 75 percent and coal reserves at 58 percent. By contrast, the developed countries have only 24 percent of the world's natural gas, 25 percent of the oil and 42 percent of the coal. This Policy Brief describes situation with Energy Resources in Uzbekistan and worldwide and suggests new opportunities for sustainable energy reforms.
