Sany, together with the Kazakh energy ministry, is considering sites for wind farms.

Among the proposed options are the Almaty, Zhambyl, Akmola and the Mangystau regions of the country, which have the best conditions for the development of wind power.

According to the Kazakh presidential administration, at the initial stage the total capacity of wind power plants will amount to 100MW, with a possibility of an increase in future phases.

Implementation of any project will be part of the plans of the Kazakh government for the increase of the share of renewables in the overall energy structure of the country up to 50% by 2025.

To date, the Kazakh government has approved a special tariff for wind power in the country, which is set at KZT 22.68/kWh ($0.072/kWh).
