Kazakhstan has abundant renewable energy resources such as hydro, solar, wind and geothermal energy. Since 2014, the installed capacity of renewable energy in Kazakhstan has gradually increased, among which photovoltaic power and wind power are growing the fastest. In the context of the global transition to reduced carbon, developing and utilizing its rich renewable energy will become the national energy development plan for the Kazakh government. At present, the renewable resources cooperation between China and Kazakhstan focuses on hydropower, and the cooperation of wind power and photovoltaic power generation is gradually advancing. The cooperation model between the two countries is developing from import and export of equipment to project contracting, with the two countries setting up companies to participate in the development and operation of projects.
