Kazakhstan’s "Baytak Bolashak" ecological alliance has urged the government of the country to issue more subsidies for projects in the field of renewable energy, the "Khabar 24" channel reported.

Presently, the state support to the renewable energy sector allows to provide the consumers with up to 5 kW of energy, which is enough to cover the costs for light and water. However, the figures should be much higher in order to fully benefiting opportunities of the renewable energy sector, according to the experts of the alliance.

In 2018, the country plans to construct new hydroelectric power stations (HPPs) in two major cities upon the initiative of the ecological alliance.

"We will succeed in development of “green economy” only with the solution of legislative issues. Our alliance has set a goal of building new hydro power plants in Almaty and Astana, as well as the technology for solving the filtration of thermal waste. This project is already being used all over the world - in Japan, in Europe and etc. Currently, we work on attracting investments for the implementation of this project," said Azamatkhan Amirtayev, president of the alliance.
