Today, representatives of the World Bank in Kazakhstan and the Ministry of Industry and Infrastructural Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan, together with the akims of the Almaty region, officially presented three educational institutions that have been modernized to improve energy efficiency. Now more than 1,500 children and the staff of these social facilities will be engaged in comfortable rooms with improved heating, water supply and lighting.

As of today, within the framework of the project "IMPROVING ENERGY EFFICIENCY IN KAZAKHSTAN", the roof has been repaired at these facilities, temperature-controlled heating systems and automatic heating points have been installed, windows, doors and lighting systems have been replaced, facade seams have been insulated, taps have been replaced with sensor mixers.

"High energy intensity leads to significant costs for the country in terms of economic competitiveness, public health and the environment. Through this Project, we aim to demonstrate how cost-effective modernization can help municipalities improve air quality associated with reducing carbon emissions, as well as significantly save budgets by reducing energy costs," said Ato Brown, Permanent Representative of the World Bank in Kazakhstan.

During the two years of the implementation of the Project "Improving Energy Efficiency in Kazakhstan", 44 social facilities (kindergartens, schools and hospitals) were selected throughout Kazakhstan. The project is aimed at improving energy efficiency in public and social institutions and creating favorable conditions for sustainable energy efficiency financing.

Every year, a Steering committee consisting of representatives of the Ministries of Health, Education and National Economy selects the most energy-intensive facilities proposed by municipalities for modernization. In support of the Government's efforts to attract strategic investors to the energy efficiency sector, the next round was recently announced, which includes applications for the pilot scheme "PPP – ESCO" (energy service companies).

The project to improve energy efficiency in Kazakhstan is being implemented with grant funds from the Swiss government and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation in the amount of US $ 21.76 million, directed through a Trust Fund administered by the World Bank. The co-financing from the participating institutions, public utilities and municipalities is US $ 1.3 million.

The four-year Project (2015-2019) is implemented by JJSC "Electric power and energy saving development Institute" under the Ministry of Industry and Infrastructural Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
