Prospects for the development of renewable energy in Kazakhstan

Today, active interest in renewable energy sources (RES) is observed not only in the global economy, but also in Kazakhstan. The country sets ambitious goals - to transfer at least half of all energy consumption to renewable and alternative energy sources by 2050. Thus, since the beginning of 2011, the total number of renewable energy facilities in Kazakhstan has grown from 23 to 111. The main key drivers of growth include: legislation, the guarantee of a "green" tariff and the purchase of electricity, as well as a new strategy.

This and much more was discussed in the framework of an online webinar organized by the Non-profit joint stock company "International Center for Green Technologies and Investment Projects".

The online meeting was attended by representatives of Samruk-Green Energy, NCE RK "Atameken", Kazakh Invest, kz ERG Kazakhstan, Zhasyl El, etc.

So, during the webinar, the expert of the UNDP-GEF project "Reducing the risks of investing in renewable energy sources" Yerlan Dairbekov spoke about what energy efficiency and renewable energy projects are needed for, and also shared a number of examples of renewable energy technologies. According to the speaker, these projects will reduce energy consumption, reduce the energy intensity of GDP and the impact of the economy on the climate, as well as increase the availability of clean energy and improve thermal and light comfort.

In turn, Senior researcher, PhD, "Institute of Information and Computing Technologies" of the Committee of Science of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Republic of Kazakhstan Murat Kunelbayev presented a project on a two-circuit solar installation with thermosiphon circulation.

According to him, the project will not only solve the issues of heat and energy supply, but also significantly improve the socio-economic life of consumers. Efficient use of solar energy potential is very attractive and promising. By the way, the project relates to solar engineering, in particular to solar energy solar installations, and can be used in hot water supply and heating systems of domestic and industrial structures.

Following the results of the online meeting, the participants noted the real importance of the topics raised at the webinar, exchanged views, and received exhaustive answers from the speakers to their questions.
