An Energy Best Practices Area presented the most advanced developments at EXPO 2017 in Astana. Dozens of projects from 13 different countries are devoted to alternative ways of obtaining energy. For example, this is a model of the Ladakh region, India. Local residents have never used electricity. Members of the Global Himalayan Expedition set a goal to provide electricity to all mountainous regions of the country.



 - Residents of these regions used kerosene lamps which are dangerous and environmentally harmful. A group of volunteers decided to install solar panels and provide electricity. Approximately 15,000 people got access to electricity in nearly 60 villages.


The region is located at an altitude of 3,000 meters and is considered one of the coldest. Installation of regular electrical systems is almost impossible in this area. Therefore, this project was most suitable for the mountainous area. Now the organization is recruiting volunteers for future campaigns.



 - Volunteers from all over the world can join this project. They combine tourism with charity. Every volunteer invests in a trip to the Himalayas, buys solar panels and installs them.


The project of Hungarian scientist, Miklos Ilyes, found its application in Kazakhstan. The Green Quarter’s territory in Astana was paved with environmentally friendly road surface invented by this Hungarian scientist.



 - It works like the regular solar panels. There are two solutions. One is the on grid and one is off grid. It means that only off and on way.


A team of scientists who worked with Miklos have spent two years on this project. The authors believe that the invention will become popular. Kazakhstan is the first country that applied this unique development. The invention will soon be presented in Hungary and other European countries.
