Kazakhstan is the most performing economy in Central Asia, in both absolute and per capita terms. Not only, it possesses large reserves of oil, gas, coal as well as minerals and metals, but also it has great renewables potential that is attractive to renewable energy developers.
In order to meet the country’s renewable energy targets and attract private investment on its path towards a more sustainable and lower-carbon economy, Kazakhstan has adopted a successful renewable energy auctions mechanism as well as promoted new green projects that are changing the national energy sector and diversifying its energy mix.
