Small-scale renewables need big-scale support in Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan


Implementation of small-scale renewable energy projects in Kazakhstan is subject to general regulation and state policy, regardless to the size of the project except for certain concessions and preferences designed specifically for small-scale renewable energy producers.

For instance, when installing a small-scale renewable energy facility, the owner may receive direct subsidies from the state covering up to 50% of investment costs provided that the generating equipment was manufactured in Kazakhstan or may implement own consumption scheme.
