Energy Policy Brief for Kazakhstan published in the CRED project
The e3.kz macro-econometric model for Kazakhstan developed jointly by GWS and our partners in Kazakhstan has been applied to quantify the economy-wide impacts of climate change adaptation. The results for the energy sector have now been published in a Sectoral Policy Brief. In this brief, the effects of the measures “expansion of underground powerlines” and “deployment of wind power and energy efficiency improvements in the housing sector” were investigated. The results show that these measures reduce climate change induced costs in the energy sector while benefitting both the energy sector and the whole economy.
