The present geopolitical crisis creates a major danger for the nation to cover inequalities and also keep frequency security," claimed Ojindaram Saibasan, power analyst at GlobalData.

According to the expert Kazakhstan ought to look to update its grid and manipulate its untapped wind and also solar possibility in the country.

Kazakhstan is expected to add 3.1 GW of photovoltaic or pv (PV) capacity as well as 2.9 GW of onshore wind in the 2023-2035 period.

The nation expects to get to 50% renewable power generation by 2050.
