The structure of power plants installed capacity in Kazakhstan:
General capacity – 18,190 МW; The Northern zone -13,130 MWThe Western energy zone - 2,070 MWThe Southern Energy Zone-2,990 MW Thermal gas-turbine and steam-to-gas stations – 395 MW (2%); Hydraulic power stations 2230 MВт (12%) Thermal steam-power plants that use organic fuel – 15,565 MW (86%);
Kazakhstan has a high potential for energy saving:
A weighted energy consumption for production of some energy intensive products:
Kazakhstanthe United States
copper 1,442 kWh/tons 300 kWh/tons
rolled iron 190 kWh/tons23 kWh/tons
steel 650 kWh/tons 152 kWh/tons
aluminum 670 kWh/tons 240 kWh/tons
Wind power potential estimates -a total capacity of 2,000 МW(500MW up to 2030)
Attractiveness of these projects:
immediate proximity to the existing power lines;
high level of demand for energy;
especially good conditions in the area of the Djungar Gates and the Shelek Corridor in the Almaty Oblast
Wind potential in North KazakhstanIsovents of annual average wind speed for North Kazakhstan based on the period 1951-11977(Wind Energy in Kazakhstan, part1:Market Development Study,1998)
Example- Pilot Wind PS-5MW in Djungar Gates
The Kazakhstan / UNDP/GEF Project «On Overcoming Barriers to Development of Wind Power Engineering in Kazakhstan» (1997-1999), GEF possible grant for construction of a WPS-5 MW $ US 1,000,000
Pre-feasibility completed. Almatyautomatica JSC completed work on installation of a 500 kW wind power station in the Druzhba Railway Station area.
Supported from the Government of Kazakhstan. Need to develop legislative documents ( privileges and taxes) to implement the Project and to promote RE
Proposed as JI/CDM project: total project cost : US $ 5.2 million
Annual Emission Reductions- 21,211t CO2
ERs Eligible for CDM (2004 –2012) 190,899 t CO2
ERs Eligible for JI( 2008-2012) 106,055 t CO2
Hydro power potential estimates at 170TWh/yr
Construction of 450 small hydropower plants of a total capacity of 2,500 МW with production of 11 TWh/year
At present the country use about 8 TWh/year.
The preference - construction of new ( Mainak HPP-300MW and Kerbulak HPP-500MW); construction and also rehabilitation of small and middle-size HPPs which are economically wise.
The Almaty Oblast – the best perspective for development of small HPPs ( but dependent on large energy imports from other regions )
Current delivery system for baseline estimation (displacement of fossil fuel fired plants)
