CASA-1000

CASA-1000 is one of the first major regional projects and trade in electricity transmission, which transports about 1,300 megawatts of electricity from Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan through Afghanistan to Pakistan. The main goal of the project is the expansion of trade relations between Central Asia and South Asia, which is expected to result in economic development and poverty reduction in the region. Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan have rich sources of hydroelectric power, while Pakistan has a severe shortage of energy during summer months (April to August). To overcome this problem, the Casa-1000 project was launched to transfer the surplus energy of these Central Asian countries during the summer months to Pakistan through Afghanistan and serve as the first infrastructure for electricity trade in the region.
