1. Implementation of green economy strategy and development of clean coal technologies and RES, increase of energy efficiency.
Energy efficiency is one of the fundamental aspects of environment protection. To eliminate energy poverty of remote consumers the Company plans to involve renewable energy sources (wind and sun power plants as well as small hydro-power plants) into the balance.
Measures taken with the purpose to use electric energy and fuel more efficient as well as measures on energy supply can give a possibility of stable economic growth almost without increasing energy consumption and, as a consequence, without increasing air emissions. Upon that increase of fuel consumption ratio and reduction of energy consumption for technical needs is assumed.
Actions such as establishment of Kazakhstan Smart Grid, construction of contemporary co-generation power plants as well as development of RES are aimed to increase of efficiency. In future the Company plans to examine the issues on utilization of secondary energy resources (for example, rejected heat of exhaust fumes, industrial waters and steam, energy of natural gas overpressure, etc.).
Due to quantitative obligations of Kyoto Protocol up to 2020, Kazakhstan implements a quota system for greenhouse gases emissions.
Number of quotas for every energy producing organization will be determined by the National plan approved by the decree of the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan. Within the nearest ten years the community plans to reduce CO2 emissions as well as to get additional quotas by constructing renewable energy sources.
2. Reduction of losses in electric and heat networks.
This task will be performed by upgrading of processing base as well as implementation of Smart Metering system and all-round automation of the Company.
