Purpose of the Environmental and Social Impact Assessments
The EBRD is considering providing EUR 54 mln to finance the construction, commissioning and operation of a 50MW wind power plant in the Yereymentau region. As one of the first large-scale wind energy projects in Kazakhstan, the project has the potential of becoming an example of successful implementation of a project-financed renewable energy project in the country. The Project is part of a larger wind park (above 300 MW) and therefore a cumulative assessment might be required as part of the Bank’s Environmental and Social Due Diligence.
It is expected that a parallel loan of up to EUR 18 million will be provided by the Clean Technology Fund (CTF).
There is a project summary document available for this project.
