Description:


The Ministry of Enviromental Protection developed the Energy Saving 2020 Programme to improve energy efficiency in the country as well as modernizing the economy and improving population welfare. The Country has set the target to reduce GDP energy intensity by et least 40 % by 2020 compared to 2008 levels. For instance, different types of energy efficient devices for buildings and energy-using household have been introduced in Kazakhstan. Some of the country iniatives included the construction of energy saving plans, energy audits for industrial enterprises, and so on. This programme has the following key directions:
