GROWTH MARKET RENEWABLE ENERGIES – A CHANCE FOR CARINTHIAN KNOW-HOW OPENS UP IN KAZAKHSTAN
In the Turkestan region, on the edge of the Kazakh steppe, between 2,800 and 3,000 hours of direct solar radiation per year are measured, which corresponds to 1300-1800 kWh / m2 – yet coal is still Kazakhstan’s largest energy source.
