Kazakhstan Power & Renewable Energy Investment Conference

Astana - 20.04.2016-21.04.2016

Kazakhstan is expected to become the biggest renewable energy player in the region and is taking further steps towards exploitation of its substantial alternative energy potential.

Euroconvention Global is inviting up to 150 renewable energy projects developers, engineering, consulting and advisory companies in the energy sector to attend the Kazakhstan Power & Renewable Energy Investment Conference taking place in Astana on 20 and 21 April 2016.

 

Background

The Kazakhstan 2050 Strategy features important plans and actions to be implemented in order to keep modernizing and diversifying the country carbon-reliant economy. Renewable and alternative energy sources will provide 50 % of all electricity produced in Kazakhstan by 2050. The country plans to spend an average $3.2 billion a year - along with investors - to achieve its green goals by 2050 and to cut significantly carbon emissions.

Kazakhstan is one of the most attractive markets for renewable energy and is actively developing its legislation in this field. It was the first country in Central Asia, where the feed-in tariffs for renewable energy facilities were adopted. Due to this legislative support, the first solar power plant in Kazakhstan is already in operation, and the country is now attracting international market players. About 28 solar energy projects are planned to put in operation until the end of 2020.

The wind power market in Kazakhstan is also expected to grow fast in the period 2016 - 2025. A number of fully permitted and ready to build projects will increase in 2016 and in the forthcoming years. First MW size wind power plants have been launched into commercial operation, whilst a number of wind projects are progressing in different stages of permitting process. Feed-in tariff for wind energy has been approved in Kazakhstan in June 2014, and combined with 15 years PPA period are expected to pave the way for fast further growth of wind power market in Kazakhstan.

The hydroelectric plant development is part of the government effort to increase significantly its overall renewable power generation before 2020. The construction of small hydropower plants in Kazakhstan is expedient as the country rivers enjoy significant hydropower capacity. Geothermal power sources and biomass potential will be further developed in the new energy mix as well.
