Representatives of the UN Secretariat noted that the developed strategy fully corresponds with the Rio +20 outcome document 'The future we want', and with the aims of the SEFA 2030 initiative (universal access to modern energy sources, doubling the share of renewable energy sources, doubling of energy efficiency).
The project of 'Strategy of sustainable energy of future Kazakhstan till 2050' concept was considered and discussed at 'Sustainable energy strategy of future Kazakhstan' panel session within the framework of VI Astana Economic Forum in 2013.
