The Foreign Languages Department of KTU will hold an online Social-educational event
Video competition in English:
“Unem – qogam quaty: Renewable energy”
as part of a special Roadmap project
on February 19, 2021 at 15:00
The event will be hold online in the Microsoft Teams, more than 100 students will take part in it, as well as the teaching staff of the Foreign Languages Department.
First-year students of KTU will present their video work in mini-groups in English, defending their projects, answering questions from the jury and other participants of the event. These projects are aimed at acquiring new humanitarian knowledge about renewable energy sources, creating a low-carbon future, which are key tasks, which in turn play a vital, strategic role in meeting our energy needs now and in the future, as well as improving the future competitive specialists’ foreign language knowledge. Over the next five years nearly two-thirds of the net increase in global energy capacity will come from renewable energy sources. Transiting to a renewable, manageable, decarbonized energy system brings a range of social and economic benefits, including jobs. The need to support renewable energy sources is spelled out both in government documents, such as the Concept for the Transition to the Green Economy, and in international initiatives of Kazakhstan, for example, the Green Bridge Partnership Program. It focuses on the exchanging technologies and experience in the field of clean energy. According to the Ministry of Energy of Kazakhstan, the renewable energy market is growing from year to year. Kazakhstan sets itself ambitious goals to increase the share of renewable energy sources in the country’s energy system. Now this figure is 1.3 %, by the end of 2020 it is planned to increase it to 3 %, and by 2030 to 10 %. The basic principle of using renewable energy is to extract it from processes constantly occurring in the environment or renewable organic resources and provide it for technical use. Unlike fossil fuels, most renewables are unlimited. Renewable energy also reduces the harmful effects on the environment. There are at least two reasons to develop renewable energy: environmental safety and energy independence.
Students will discuss renewable energy in addition to or as an alternative to fossil fuels, long-term perspectives, comparison of efficiencies in different countries, the use of similar technologies with a good resource base and cost structure on competitive terms compared to fossil fuels. After all, right now it can be done cheaper than ever, and this option will increasingly prove to be the most economical for consumers today and in the long term.
Responsible for the event: Head of the Foreign Languages Department, Ph.D., Associate Professor Jantassova Damira Dulatovna, responsible for the social-educational work of the department: Izotova Aigerim Serikovna, Mustapayeva Oral Tulenbekovna.
