In the second half of 2023, Kazakhstan purchased more than 3 billion kilowatt-hours from Russia, which is 156 per cent more than in 2022. This is almost half of the exported Russian electricity.

According to the publication, in January-March 2024, Russian electricity supplies to Kazakhstan increased by 29% to 977.2 million kilowatt-hours.

In the first quarter, the republic bought 607 million kilowatt-hours over the plan, which is about 62% of all Russian electricity exports.

For the second half of 2023, Kazakhstan bought more than 3 billion kilowatt-hours in Russia, which is 156% more than in 2022.

Earlier it was reported that Kazakhstan is buying more electricity from Russia and at a higher price due to new trade rules between the countries. The average delivery price in dollars rose by 7.5% to $0.057 per 1 kilowatt-hour, while in rubles – by a third, to 5.4 rubles.

According to experts interviewed by Kommersant, Kazakhstan will continue to increase its energy purchases from Russia due to a shortage of its own generation. In 2023, the republic independently produced 113 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity, while it consumed 115 kilowatt-hours (up 1.9%).

Imports from Russia totalled 5 billion kilowatt-hours, or 4.3% of consumption.
