Development of heat supply system


Country and location:
Republic of Kazakhstan
Location: North Kazakhstan, Astana-city


Type of the principal GHGs targeted for reduction by the project - CO2


Project category: - energy efficiency
Sector of economy is in the process of privatization The centralized heat supply system in the municipal sector is not economically reasonable. The costs for this system, for example, in the countries of CIS are 5 times bigger than in Sweden.

Project description:

  • Objectives:
    The principle objective of the project is to demonstrate the technical and economical viability of energy saving in the municipal sectors of the cities of Kazakhstan by using alternative sources of energy competitive with the HEC(heating electric centralized systems), also to reduce the costs on the heat supply and contribute to the reduction of pollution involved in the operation of the centralized heat supply system.
  • Current situation and expected outcomes:
    Astana is the rising city of Kazakhstan but with an old centralized heat supply system. It is proposed to implement a project to reduce the costs for the development of the heat supply system of Astana city by installation of automatic heating devices for hot water and ventilation and off-line diesel boiler in two demonstrative zones (for the kindergarten and for the hospital) in order to increase the efficiency of the systems in the whole and to reduce the heating load and heating losses, length and material capacity of pipelines of the c
