Dear ladies and gentlemen, dear colleagues!

The Ministry of Energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan (further –Ministry) supports the initiative on holding in Kazakhstan the annual international event in the sphere of renewable energy - Solar Fest Qazaqstan (further – Forum).

This initiative was promulgated by the Kazakhstan Association of Solar Energy (further –Association) that was committed to form an integral policy and favorable climate for investments and successful development of solar energy in Kazakhstan.

It is ten years now since enactment of the Law “On Support of Use of Renewable Sources of Energy” in Kazakhstan. The fundamentals of the industry have been created and mechanisms of state support of renewable sources of energy (further - RSE) have been developed during this period. This all allowed to create the green energy market and implement some 74 projects with the total capacity of 678,6 MW in a planned manner.

In 2018 the Ministry in line with the global trends adopted tender procedures for selection of RSE projects. The foregoing represent the general positions and outcomes of the integral state policy of the Republic of Kazakhstan on development and active use of RSE.

These achievements and step-by-step actions would be impossible without an active involvement of a number of interested parties, ongoing sharing of opinions and experience between Kazakhstan and international experts. Of course, there are still a number of outstanding RSE issues; there is a certain scope of goals that require a serious comprehensive expert review.

I hope and confident that this new business event of Forum will become an efficient multilateral dialogue platform to consolidate the advanced RSE-related knowledge and experience, share professional opinions on the most urgent issues of the industry, build a solid industrial international networking, and, therefore, create favorable opportunities and conditions for development of the industry of renewable energy in Kazakhstan.

I hereby invite Kazakhstan and international interested companies and organization to take an active participation in Forum.

I hope that all participants will have successful and productive meetings and discussions.
