Removing barriers to energy efficiency in municipal heat and hot water supply



Municipal heat supply needs a market approach

The basic consumer of municipal heating services in Kazakhstan is residential sector that accounts for about 40% of supplied energy.

The better part of residential buildings was constructed in the last century by projects and of building materials relevant for the then economic conditions, which have changed ever since.

The country is developing market economy determining the cost of goods and services.
