Who developed the Action Plan for Energy Conservation?
Answer: The action plan was developed on the basis of subject GER energy audit.

 

What is the energy audit?
A: Energy audits is the collection, processing and analysis of data on the use of energy resources in order to assess the possibilities and potential of energy conservation and preparation of a report.

 

What is the examination of energy conservation?
A: Examination of energy saving and energy efficiency is the examination conducted in order to assess the energy efficiency of architectural and technical solutions related to the use of energy resources and optimization of consumers’ costs for energy supply,  construction of buildings, structures and facilities, as well as during their renovations, and capital repair.

 

What is the difference between energy audit and examination of energy saving?
A: Energy audit is conducted to identify potential energy savings in existing plants, as well as buildings, structures and facilities. The examination is conducted in order to assess the energy efficiency of the project (pre-project) documents for the construction of buildings, structures and facilities.

How is the annual consumption of energy resources calculated?
Answer: The annual consumption of energy resources of the legal entity  is the total expenditure of a legal entity in a calendar year including primary and secondary energy as well as all related technically unavoidable losses, including losses arising from the provision of services of energy resources transportation with the exception of secondary energy resources produced by a legal entity and transferred to other legal entities.

 

Who is obliged to carry out an energy audit?
Answer: In accordance with the legislation of the Republic of Kazakhstan in the field of energy conservation and energy efficiency subjects of SER, except for government agencies.

are required to conduct an energy audit

 

Who is paying for an energy audit?
A: Energy audit is carried out by the customer.

 

How often should a compulsory energy audit be carried?
Answer: Mandatory energy audit is conducted at least once every five years.

 

Who is obliged to implement a system of energy management?
A: Subjects of SER that consume energy resources in the amount equivalent to fifteen hundred or more tons of standard fuel per year are required to create, implement and organize the work of the energy management system in accordance with the requirements of the international standard of energy management.

 

Who has the right to provide services for energy audit and examination of energy saving and energy efficiency?
Answer: legal entities have received a certificate of accreditation for this type of activity have the right to provide services for energy audit and examination of energy saving and energy efficiency.

 

How to transfer energy resources to tons of standard fuel?
Answer: One can do it using  the conversion factors. Convert energy resources into tons of standard coal can be done using online calculator to calculate the energy consumption on the website of JSC "Kazahenergoexpertise» http://kazee.kz/calc/calc.html.

 

What are the legal documents that regulate the work and the process of creating and maintaining SER?
answer:
- Law "On energy saving and energy efficiency" of 13 January 2012;
- The rules of formation and maintenance of the State Energy Register;
- Other legislative acts in the field of energy conservation and energy efficiency.

 

How does the power consumption is calculated for entities?
Answer: While filling out the "Form 2", which is sent in the annex to the letter request, the amount of fuel and energy resources in real terms translates into tsf (tons of standard fuel), used to assess the total amount of energy consumption and efficiency of measures to improve energy efficiency.

 

Why do we need SER?
Answer: This registry is required to collect and analyze relevant information on production and consumption of energy resources across the country. In Kazakhstan, activities of SER will provide an opportunity to forecast reduces of energy intensity on GDP, creation and formation of a single registry of energy consumers, the development of science in the field of energy efficiency, the introduction of advanced energy-saving technologies in the industry, the creation of regulatory and methodological foundations in the field of energy efficiency and energy conservation

 

 

Where can a list of organizations which are the subjects of SER be found?
Answer: The approved list of SER subjects in the state and Russian languages is on the official website of the operator JSC "Kazahenergoexpertise"http://kazee.kz/gosudarstvennyy-energeticheskiy-reestr/subekty-gosudarstvennogo-energeticheskogo-reestra

 

What is the obligation of SER subjects based on the Law "On energy saving and energy efficiency"?
Answer: In accordance with the law SER subjects must:
- conduct energy audits (excluding government agencies) Until 26 July 2015;
-  SER subjects consuming the energy resources of an amount equivalent to fifteen hundred or more tons of standard fuel per year are required to create, implement and organize the work of the energy management system in accordance with the requirements of the international standard for energy management From 1 July 2014.

 

Is there an international experience of implementing such registry?
Answer: Yes, there is such a project in Japan, on the basis of their legislation  Kazakhstan is introducing the register.

 

Is water specified in the form of 6 as per capita consumption?
Answer: if water is used as the heat carrier , it is possible to take it into account the flow rate per unit according to instructions.

 

Column 8 in the form of 2 differs from the units that are specified in the column of units. What unit did write?
Answer: data is entered only in thousands of tenge  in column 8 of Form 2.

 

When sending  soft copy to SER operator, should it be in Excel or a scanned version?
Answer: Excel files and scanned version of the letter with the completed forms should be sent.

 

If entity uses electricity for heating, warm boiler that heats the room, then which value should be taken for specific index in the form of 6?
Answer: If the input of any of the types of fuel and energy resources, and the output of final consumption in the form of heat, it is possible to calculate an indicator as per capita consumption of this type of fuel and energy resources (different for different parameters) Gcal or square.  In this case Gcal is preferable.

 

What is the standard fuel?
Answer: Conventional Fuel which was adopted by the technical and economic calculations and covered by the regulations and standards is the unit, which serves for comparing heat value of different types of organic fuel.

 

What is the specific energy consumption and how it is determined?
Answer: it is the specific energy consumption per unit of production, the heated area of the building, etc.
Legal entity,which produces several types products defines an indicator as the most capacious specific consumption of energy resources per unit of the relevant unit of production. For legal entities that provide services or work, you need to determine what types of energy resources used in the process.
To calculate the specific heat demand of the building it is necessary to divide the flow of energy resources on the heated area of the building. The unit of measurement of the specific heat consumption of the building heated area is Gkal/m2 or tons/m2 at a flow of energy resources for heating buildings (coal, fuel oil, diesel fuel, etc.).
