Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/07/2014 -- We expect healthy growth in Kazakhstan's power sector over BMI's 10-year forecast period to 2023 , in terms of generation and consumption. Coal will retain its dominance, accounting for over 80% of the country's energy generation by 2023. However, non-hydro renewables will grow rapidly, with a slew of foreign-financed wind and solar projects in the pipeline. The government also plan s to restart the exploitation of nuclear energy, helped by Kazakhstan's vast uranium wealth. Power production will comfortably meet demand, with Kazakhstan's dependence on energy imports decreasing over the 10-year period. For much of the forecast period, system losses will be considerable, but steady investment in transmission and distribution infrastructure will narrow the supply/demand gap significantly.

Key T rends A nd D evelopments:

- Plans for privatising the electricity sector remain live. In July, the government confirmed its intention to list shares in the Kazakhstan Electricity Grid Operating Company, Samruk- Energo , Kazakhstan Temir Zholy and KazAtomProm in a People's IPO in December 2014. The final number of shares to be floated and the price will be decided in due course.

- Plans to integrate Kazakhstan's power sector into a regional market were boosted by the government's decision in June to sign up to the new Eurasian Economic Union. The trade bloc, which is due to be launched in January 2015, consists initially of Russia and Belarus, but will potentially also include Armenia, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan.

- In a bid to improve the internal distribution of electricity, the government embarked on construction of a 1,500km north-south transmission line in July. Meanwhile, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) agreed a mandate letter with the government on financing a USD25mn project to modernise electricity distribution networks in the Kyzylorda region.

- The government's commitment to developing its renewables sector took a...
