Several renewable energy facilities to be launched in Kazakhstan

Several renewable energy facilities are set to be launched in Kazakhstan. Thus, biogas production will commence in the Akmola region. A German company with expertise in similar installations across Europe and South America plans to establish a plant with a capacity of 500 kW, the Atameken National Chamber of Entrepreneurs reports. Biogas production will allow reducing livestock waste, repurposing it as fertilizer, and most notably, mitigating greenhouse gas emissions. This all will have a positive impact on the environment. It is worth mentioning that the residues generated after biogas production will be utilized as peat for enriching fields. The construction is projected to be completed at the end of next year. Meanwhile, in the Mangystau region, an Italian company is building a hybrid power plant expected to become operational within two years. The project aims to diversify and decarbonize the energy supply of the region. The plant, with a capacity of 120 MW, will be powered by renewable energy sources, including wind, solar, and gas. It should be noted that these facilities are being established on the instructions of the Head of State as part of the country’s green energy development.
