Abstract

This chapter investigates the role that public–private partnerships (PPPs) could play in the promotion of renewable energy, for example by building wind energy plants or solar energy facilities. The discussion focuses on whether PPPs, as a policy instrument, could be effectively used for the sustainable production of power from renewables. The chapter draws on data from Kazakhstan–a resource-rich economy in Central Asia–to investigate how policy on green energy could be effectively served by PPPs as a policy implementation instrument. The chapter concludes that PPPs should be viewed not merely as builders and operators of power stations, but also as a means to contribute to sustainability through job creation, income generation and reduction of the nation's dependency on fossil fuels.
