Astana, Kazakhstan – Senior government officials, representatives of international organisations, business community, non-governmental organisations, and industry experts gathered today at the V International Forum on Energy Saving (Forum) to exchange knowledge and experience and strengthen partnerships in the field of energy saving and energy efficiency. The Forum also marked the International Energy Saving Day.

The event was organised by JSC “Electric Power and Energy Saving Institute” in collaboration with the Ministry of Industry and Construction of the Republic of Kazakhstan and with support of the United Nations Development Programme in Kazakhstan, the European Union’s Project “Sustainable Energy Connectivity in Central Asia (SECCA)”, the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ), United States Agency for International Development and the German Energy Agency DENA.

According to the International Energy Agency, Kazakhstan’s energy intensity is two times higher than the world average. Residents of apartments and houses consume the same amount of energy as the industrial sector. At the same time, the country aims to reduce key energy consumption indicators by at least 15 % by 2029.

The SECCA project contributed to the development of Kazakhstan’s 2023-2029 Energy Saving and Energy Efficiency Concept, which was formally adopted this year.

At the Forum, Team Leader Paata Janelidze and Energy Expert Zhaksylyk Tokayev presented on “Improvement of energy efficiency in buildings” ​and “Advancement of Small-Scale Renewable Energy Sources in Kazakhstan”. Mr Janelidze also participated in the presentation of Awards to the participants of the national energy saving drawing competition.

The event programme is available on the Forum website.
