Naperville, IL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/16/2014 -- Reportstack, provider of premium market research reports announces the addition of Kazakhstan Power Report Q3 2014 market report to its offering
We expect healthy growth in Kazakhstan's power sector over BMI's 10-year forecast period to
2023, in terms of generation and consumption. Coal will retain its dominance, accounting for over 80% of
the country's energy generation by 2023. However, non-hydro renewables will grow rapidly, with a slew of
foreign-financed wind and solar projects in the pipeline. The government also plans to restart the
exploitation of nuclear energy, helped by Kazakhstan's vast uranium wealth. Power production will
comfortably meet demand, with Kazakhstan's dependence on energy imports decreasing over the 10-year
period. For much of the forecast period, system losses will be considerable, but steady investment in
transmission and distribution infrastructure will narrow the supply/demand gap significantly.
Key Trends And Developments
