Clean tech

Many people in our Going Global community are very seasoned travelers. They spend their days crisscrossing the globe to do deals and open up new markets. Clearly one of the most exciting sectors is clean teach. And one of the most exciting places for clean tech development is Kazakhstan.

Central Asia’s Kazakhstan is the world’s largest landlocked country and is blessed with petroleum, natural gas and mining but recently the country has made a great emphasis on the green economy.

#NEWENERGY global startup fest is an international contest designed to connect startups, investors and experts in clean tech and renewable energy. The event is organized with the support of the Ministry of Energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan and organized by JSC Informational and Analytical Center of Oil and Gas. It will be held on October 27, 2016 in Astana. Its main objective is to attract and share innovative ideas in clean tech.

100 startup companies from around the world will present their vision of alternative and renewable energy sources, climate and ecology, smart cities and sustainable infrastructure, usage of water resources, new production technologies and methods to a panel of experts who will vote for 30 best startups. The 30 winners will have a chance to present their company’s clean tech vision at Astana EXPO-2017, a leading energy event.
