KAZAKHSTAN: SOLAR PLANT FINANCED BY THE EBRD

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development  is organising a new financing for the construction of a 76MWp solar plant in the Karaganda region of  Kazakhstan, a leader in the development of renewable energy in Central Asia, with a total installed solar capacity of 216MWp.      The US$ 42.6 million package provided to the well-established German developer Joachim Goldbeck Holding GmbH will consist of an EBRD local currency loan of up to US$ 28 million (Kazakh tenge equivalent), a concessional loan of up to US$ 11.5 million provided by the Green Climate Fund (GCF), the world’s largest climate fund and a concessional loan of up to US$ 3.1 million provided by the Clean Technology Fund (CTF).   Up to one-third of the plant’s installed capacity, will employ bifacial solar modules able to produce solar power from both sides of the panel and will be among the first completed renewable energy source projects in Kazakhstan under an auction scheme, a system supported by the EBRD to promote competitive pricing and stimulate investments into renewables.    The investment takes place under the Bank’s €500 million Kazakhstan Renewables Framework, established in 2016 and extended in 2019, to help the country respond to the challenges of climate change, increase investments in renewables, provide technical assistance and build institutional capacity.   Previously, the EBRD financed the 100MWp Saran solar power plant, which was also developed by the Joachim Goldbeck Holding GmbH, and is the largest solar power plant built at one time in Central Asia.
