WHY KAZAKHSTAN?

As it is known, Kazakhstan won the right to host the World Expo 2017.

Astana EXPO 2017 exhibition will be held under the theme «Energy for the future». Astana EXPO 2017 - is a comprehensive large-scale project, the theme of which is the energy which causes a deep multilateral interest that allows considering it as a factor which predetermines the existence of communities and daily life in these communities.

The project «Energy for the Future» sets concrete goals - to explore the strategies, programs and technologies aimed to develop sustainable energy sources, improving the reliability and efficiency of energy supply, promote the use of renewable energy sources and show visitors the necessity of their active participation in the development and implementation of the plan of energy saving production and efficient use of energy resources.

RES DEVELOPMENT PROSPECTS:

By 2030 a share of renewable energy is planning to be led to 30%. The environment in the Republic of Kazakhstan creates big opportunities for development of this generation. A cumulative potential of renewable energy in the power generation makes 1885 billion kWh, thermal potential – 4,3 GW. The biggest potential belongs to the generation on the basis of wind energy.

Nowadays the government provides support to renewable energy: long-term, fixed and comparatively high rates which are declared around the world have been approved for renewable energy manufacturers.

Currently, one of the primary directions in energy development and solving of Kazakhstan environmental problems is the use of renewable energy resources and implementation of energy- and resources-saving programs.

Potential of renewable energy resources (water, wind and solar energy) is very significant in Kazakhstan. But despite this, the percentage of alternative energy production in Kazakhstan is only 0.4 %.

According to experts, Kazakhstan – is one of the countries with the most suitable conditions for the development of wind energy. It was developed wind atlas of Kazakhstan and studied 10 sites for building of WES, which can be used for the construction of large WES with a total capacity of up to 1000 MW for commercial production of electricity of 3.2 billion kWh of electricity.

Despite the geographic location of Kazakhstan in the northern latitude, solar energy resources of the country are stable due to favorable climate conditions. According to the recent study results the potential of solar energy in the southern regions of the country reaches 2500 - 3000 of solar hours of sunshine annually.

The theoretical potential of hydropower resources of Kazakhstan is 170h109 kWh / year; and the potential for use - 62h109 kWh / year; same economic potential is about 27- 30х109 kWh / year.

State is taking integrated measures to increase the share of energy from renewable sources, for this in 2009 the Law «On the support of renewable energy usage» was adopted.

Motivation for use of renewable energy is the fact that Kazakhstan has committed itself to reduce its emissions by 15% relatively to the level of 1992. This goal will be difficult to achieve only reducing the energy output ratio. Thus, the role of renewable energy in reducing greenhouse gas emissions is essential to Kazakhstan.

An important step towards the development of RES in Kazakhstan is the State Program on forced industrial and innovative development of Kazakhstan in 2010-2014, which was approved in March of this year. The objectives of the National Program are to achieve a volume of electricity generated by renewable energy sources in the amount of 1 billion kWh per year by 2014 and increase the share of renewable energy in the total energy consumption for more than 1 % by 2015.

Within the framework of the State Program it is planned to implement projects for the construction of the first wind energy station. Among the suggested hosting areas are the city of Astana, Akmola Region, The Dzungarian Gates and The Shelek Corridor. The supposed power of generated electrical energy at the first stage may reach 50-100 MW.

By 2015, it is planned the construction of wind turbines with a capacity of 125 MW and electric power generation of 400 million kWh Also, prior to 2015 , Kazakhstan plans to bring into work new small HES with a total installed capacity of over 100 MW ,and with a planned output of electric energy - 300 million kWh

By 2030 a share of renewable energy is planning to be led to 30%. The environment in the Republic of Kazakhstan creates big opportunities for development of this generation. A cumulative potential of renewable energy in the power generation makes 1885 billion kWh, thermal potential – 4,3 GW. The biggest potential belongs to the generation on the basis of wind energy.

It is foreseen to develop the plan of renewable energy facilities accommodation and to continue improving and expansion of the first Kazakhstan wind atlas.

In the near future the Government of Kazakhstan plans to study issues of renewable energy sources: reservation and priority in the provision of land for the construction of RES; obligations of transmitting energy organizations on purchase electricity produced with the help of RES; exemption of RES from payment for electricity transportation via networks; support connecting of objects that use renewable energy sources to the grid power of transmission organization.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY, ENERGY- AND RESOURCE-SAVING:

The Kazakhstan field of energy-saving is tasked to reduce the energy intensity of GDP for at least 10% by 2015 and 25% by 2020. Thus, energy-saving is related to the strategic objectives of the state.

To achieve these goals it is necessary to improve energy efficiency in all sectors and all regions of the country as a whole. To implement these plans, a law «On energy-saving and energy efficiency» was passed in the Republic of Kazakhstan that established regulatory framework and infrastructure conditions for its implementation.

Kazakhstan has significant potential for energy-saving - according to experts it is 30 % of total energy consumption. In November 2011, the Government of Kazakhstan has approved a comprehensive plan in the field of energy efficiency, which will save up to 200 billion tenge a year. The comprehensive plan consists of 47 events, including 25 cross-sectoral events, 5 pilot projects, 24 events in the sphere of industry, electricity, heat engineering, housing and communal services. The implementation of the comprehensive plan will cover all the national companies, government bodies, local councils, councils of Almaty and Astana, the subjects of housing and public services. Implementation of the comprehensive plan would secure reduction in energy intensity of GDP by 10%, annual saving reaches 16 billion kilowatt hours of electricity, 11 kilo calories of heat power, 7 million tons of coal that in cash equivalent is equal to 200 billion of tenge.

Implementation of the comprehensive plan will form a new system that will develop the streamline industry of high performance, develop and implement new technologies to improve energy efficiency, to train new staff and provide interaction between science and the real economy sector, to form a different attitude and a new way of thinking among the population on and rational and wise use of energy resources.
