For the first time, the I International Renewable Energy Business Festival Solar Fest Qazaqstan took place in the summer of 2019 and gathered more than 300 representatives of the solar and renewable energy market of Kazakhstan: representatives of government agencies, Financial settlement center, the organizer of renewable energy auctions, domestic and foreign investors, international experts and recognized world industry leaders, international organizations and financial institutions, associations and universities of Kazakhstan.
Solar Fest Qazaqstan is not just a business event that brought together representatives of government agencies, international experts and representatives of industry business society, it is primarily a dialogue platform where participants had the opportunity to discuss topical issues on the development of renewable energy in Kazakhstan.
For two days, its participants discussed topical issues of “green” energy – the problems and difficulties of implementing renewable energy projects in Kazakhstan, prospects for further development of renewable energy sources, and alarming challenges that concern key market players.
The discussion resulted in a Charter – an appeal to the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan from the business community of the renewable energy industry on the further development of renewable energy in Kazakhstan. This Charter was sent to the Prime Minister of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Mr Askar Mamin. Over the past 4 years, the Ministry of Energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan, the Renewable Energy Association “Qazaq Green”, and the renewable energy business community have done a lot of work on the implementation of the Charter. At the moment, almost all the main provisions have been fulfilled.
We believe that this is a practical result of the joint work of the industry community led by the Ministry of Energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan, and Solar Fest Qazaqstan became the platform that was able to accumulate the opinion of business and the vision of the government agencies.
Despite the fact that the event took place several years ago, the Qazaq Green Renewable Energy Association still receives positive feedback from both domestic and foreign participants. In this regard, it was decided to hold the II International Business Festival on Renewable Energy Qazaq Green Fest on May 25-26, 2023 at Rixos Hotel Borovoe.
