The population was 17.80 million and the current gross domestic product (GDP) was $133.6 billion as of 2016. Kazakhstan wind power market value, which was USD XXX billion in 2016, is expected to grow to USD XXX billion in 2017, at a CAGR of XXX percent. Exceptionally rich in wind resources, about 50% of Kazakhstan’s territory has average wind speeds about 4-5 m/sec at a height of 30m. Some calculations estimate the wind potential of Kazakhstan around 1,820 billion KW/h per year spread over most of the country. Windy sites are mostly located in the Caspian Sea area of Atyray and Mangistau oblasts, and in central and southern Kazakhstan. A country wide-wind atlas is available. With a density of wind capacity about 10 MW/sq.km, there is a possibility to install thousands MW of wind farms in Kazakhstan.
The success in developing wind energy is largely dependent of the availability of reliable meteorological data on wind potential. Such measurements have been accomplished for Djungar Gates and Chilik (Shelek) Corridor in a frame of the UNDP/GEF project on wind energy in 1998 - 2000. Thus, in Djungar Gates, wind potential is estimated as 525 W/m2. In Chilik corridor, it is about 240W/m2. Power production of wind turbines in these places could achieve 4,400kW/h/MW and 3,200kW/h/MW respectively. Both sites are considered ideal for large wind farm construction.
Kazakhstan adopted the Green Energy Concept in 2013, derived from the country’s declared course for long-term economic development under the Kazakhstan 2050 Strategy, launched in December 2011. It sets an ambitious target for reaching 50% of alternative and renewable energy in the country’s energy mix by 2050 by phasing out ageing infrastructure, increasing the use of alternative fuels and installing efficient and environmentally sound energy technologies. Kazakhstan is also considering the installation of additional nuclear generation capacity in a bid to meet growing energy demand and targets for developing a green economy. The government has also approved the comprehensive Strategic Development Plan to 2020, which aims at sustained economic growth by accelerated diversification through industrialisation and infrastructure development. The government’s goal is to position itself amongst the top 30 global economies by 2050.
The country’s main strategy to meet the growing need of power is to reduce the energy dependency by increasing the energy efficiency, increased use of renewable resources, natural gas, nuclear sources, and connecting to power infrastructure of Commonwealth Independent States (CIS).
