Energy Efficiency Description:

Russia has, under The Federal Law of July 27, 2010. № 190-FZ "On Heat Supply", adopted a new legislative basis and tariff structure for heat supply. The new tariff approach is aimed at enabling the realization of energy efficiency and renewable energy policy objectives. Long-term tariffs are advocated as a mechanism to reconcile investor and consumer interests. The new tariff structure moves from a short-term cost-plus tariff approach (creating incentives to increase energy consumption) to long-term investment-based tariff methodologies. The return on investment methodology, in contrast, is more compatible with the specific capital intensive cost structure of energy efficiency investments.
