Dubai, Dec. 3 (WAM): The UAE and Kazakhstan signed an agreement outlining a commitment to cooperation in the development of Kazakhstan’s renewables sector, including through the development of a large-scale wind power project with a 1 GW capacity.

Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, President of the Republic of Kazakhstan, oversaw the signing of the agreement between the Kazakhstan Ministry of Energy and the UAE Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure.

The signing took place at COP28 in Dubai, Emirates News Agency (WAM) reported. 

A Joint Development Agreement was also signed between Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company (Masdar), the UAE’s clean energy champion, who will spearhead the project, W Solar, Qazaq Green Power QGP (a Samruk-Kazyna Group company), and the Kazakhstan Investment Development Fund to develop and implement a 1GW wind project.
