Masdar has signed a roadmap for developing up to 1 gigawatt (GW) wind power plant in Kazakhstan to support the country’s goal of achieving half its energy mix from renewables by 2050. The Central Asian nation is a key strategic market for Masdar, the UAE’s flagship renewable energy company, which has been steadily investing in the region in recent years. The roadmap for developing the up to 1 GW wind project with a battery energy storage system (BEES) was signed by four partners on the sidelines of the Astana International Forum. Kazakhstan aims to become carbon neutral by 2060 and targets renewable electricity generation of 50 percent by 2050. The up to 1 GW wind farm, with BESS, is Masdar’s first project in the country.
