Description Akmola Electricity Distribution Network Modernization and Expansion Project
Objectives and Scope
Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

The Country Partnership Strategy (CPS) for Kazakhstan 2012 2016 seeks to increase ADB s involvement in the energy sector, with the aim to modernize the country s aging energy infrastructure. It notes specifically that ADB will support replacement of obsolete energy infrastructure and technologies, and upgrade the transmission network, mainly through private sector or sub-sovereign modalities. The project is therefore fully aligned with the CPS.

The project is also in line with the Energy Sector Policy (2009) which highlights energy efficiency improvements in transmission and distribution systems. The policy proposes that ADB will continue to support installation of modern transmissions systems to transmit electricity efficiently from generation facilities to consumers, including upgrading of existing systems to reduce technical losses and enable competition when open access is permitted by law.
