A World Bank (the Bank) energy team visited Kazakhstan on November 10-16, 2016. The mission objectives were to: (i) review the implementation progress of Kazakhstan Energy efficiency Project (KEEP) with focus on procurement issues related to subprojects implementation; (ii) discuss the project management issues with the implementing agency; and (iii) meet with Astana and Almaty Akimats on the proposed study of city-wide energy efficiency assessment and the KEEP technical assistance for piloting an energy efficiency fund in Astana.
The mission met with the representatives of the Ministry for Investments and Development (MID), JSC Electric Power and Energy Saving Development Institute (EEDI), Astana Akimat, Almaty Akimat, Kazakhstan Association of Energy Auditors, and USAID’s Kazakhstan Climate Change Mitigation program. A full list of persons met is included in Annexes 1 and 2. This Aide Memoire summarizes the key mission findings, issues and agreed next steps. The mission would like to thank the counterparts for their cooperation and support.

Provide the implementation of country’s policy in the area of energy saving
Grant includes 2 Components
Component 1: Preparation and implementation of demonstrational sub-projects in public and socially desirable objects
Component 2: Technical assistance
Preparation and implementation of demonstration subprojects in public and socially significant facilities (SSF)
This component aims to reduce emissions and cost of heat and electricity. It consists of 4 groups of subprojects. - the amount is 17...
This component aims to provide technical and methodological support. It is implemented in 5 areas.
Group I - 19 objects in Pavlodar region, Kyzylorda, Karaganda, East Kazakhstan region, West Kazakhstan Area(11 kindergartens and 8 schools);
Group II - 25 objects in 8 regions - ZKR, Kostanay, North Kazakhstan, Pavlodar, IVF, Almaty, Akmola, SKR (13 schools, 4 kindergartens, 5 medical institutions, 3 street lighting facilities);
Group III - 31 objects in 7 regions: West Kazakhstan, Kostanay, Akmola, Pavlodar, East Kazakhstan, Almaty, North Kazakhstan. (19 schools, 4 kindergartens, 5 medical institutions / hospitals / clinics, 3 objects of street lighting);
Group IV - 10 objects in 4 areas: WKO, Kostanay, Akmola, South Kazakhstan (4 schools, 2 kindergartens, 2 medical institutions / hospital / clinic, 2 objects of street lighting).
The criteria for the objects nominated for selection were selected in accordance with the potential for energy efficiency based on the calculation of energy consumption per square meter (for buildings) or per lamp (for street lighting).
One of the criteria on the objects selection was the following requirements:
- to be in state ownership
- absence of plans on reduction, closing and privatization
- state of the objects should not be attributed to emergency
Applications evaluation, verification of their eligibility, as well as the ranking of objects is carried out by the Project Implementation Unit of the JSC “Electric Power and Energy Saving Development Institute”
For project implementation from 2015 to 2016 years has been chosen 19 objects
For project implementation from 2016 to 2017 years has been chosen 25 objects
For project implementation from 2017 to 2019 years has been chosen 31 objects
Additionally it has been chosen 10 objects
It will be realized 85 sub-projects on the project in total

Personalized information has potential to take promoting energy efficiency to the next level.
It’s one of those everybody-wins situations: Utilities will save more energy and customers will save more money. With carbon emissions declining more swiftly, the whole world benefits as some progress will be made toward slowing the pace of climate change.
According to the results of energy monitoring at the implemented facilities, the amount of annual savings of fuel-energy resources on one facility is 12% at average (30% of the facility with maximum savings) in thermal energy and 19% (55% of the facility with maximum savings) in electricity.
A complaint is submitted by one or more individuals, or their representatives, who believe they are directly and adversely affected by an active (i.e., not closed) Bank-supported Project.
