NORTHERN ZONE – East-Kazakhstan, Akmola, Aktyubinsk, Kostanay, Pavlodar, Karaganda, North-Kazakhstan regions and Astana city. In the Northern zone 80% of Kazakhstan’s total electric energy amount is produced. Mostly it is caused by the fact that in the Northern zone there are main coal deposits of Kazakhstan and water energy resources that significantly reduce the electric energy production cost. Electric energy surplus is transmission to energy deficit Southern zone and exported to Russia. 

SOUTHERN ZONE  – Almaty, Zhambyl, Kyzyl-Orda, and South-Kazakhstan regions and Almaty city. This zone is characterized by electric energy deficit and its high costs. Deficit is covered at the expense of power transmission from the Northern zone and from UPG of Central Asia. 

WESTERN ZONE – Mangistau, Atyrau and West-Kazakhstan regions. Western regions possess most projects in oil and gas spheres. Notwithstanding significant deposits of hydrocarbon raw materials, a part of electric energy need is covered at the expense of export from Russia. In prospect it is planned to create new energy generating facilities in the region for covering own needs and export of energy abroad.
