Unicase provided the Client with legal advisory services within a pilot project on building and operating a 100-megawatt solar power plant, based on a private bilateral sleeved PPA mechanism. In particular, we provided regulatory support on the Kazakhstan law governing the renewable energy sector, especially on the regulation of bilateral PPAs in Kazakhstan.


Bilateral Sleeved Private PPA
The services included an analysis of the private PPA contractual structure with all the agreements/contracts needed to articulate a bilateral PPA in Kazakhstan. We arranged everything required to perform electricity generation, transmission, distribution, supply, balancing, dispatch, and any other PPA related activity. The Unicase Team also prepared a report on main contractual concerns and critical points/risks for the PPA term sheet negotiation, especially those arising from the local context.
Innovative and unique as it is, the Project integrates the first mechanism in the Kazakhstan renewable energy market ever. The Project will have a significant impact on the economy sector, which is actively developing in Central Asia.
Successful implementation will lead to attaining decarbonisation targets of Kazakhstan's economy set by the 2050 Strategy, approved by the President. The Project will also contribute to the global cause: the United Nations Framework Convention, the Kyoto Protocol, and the Paris Convention on Climate change. In particular, under the Paris convention, Kazakhstan should reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 15-25% by 2030 compared to 1990 across the entire economy. Globally, this will contribute to reducing greenhouse emissions and prevent climate change on the Planet.
