Energy transition Atyrau
Witteveen+Bos is working on an energy efficiency strategy for the Kazakh service chain Chagala Group. In recent years, Chagala Group has developed high-quality offices, hotels, apartment buildings and restaurants on a 6 hectares site in Atyrau, Kazakhstan. It is Chagala Group’s ambition to be the most sustainable provider of services in Kazakhstan. In order to achieve this goal, Chagala Group has commissioned Witteveen+Bos to provide consultancy services on sustainable energy in line with the trias energetica principles. We are also providing expertise on energy saving and water saving opportunities. This will result in an integrated sustainability strategy that will enable our client both to save on energy costs in the future and to brand itself as a sustainable organisation.
To further support its sustainability ambition and to set an example for other international companies, Chagala Group wanted to have its buildings certified (for example with the BREEAM or LEED label). Witteveen+Bos therefore developed a set of criteria on energy, water and sustainability to evaluate the current level of sustainability of buildings selected during a site visit. Based on the findings, we developed several development scenario’s and made recommendations on measures to further improve sustainability. We also included a cost-benefit analysis.
