The Russian economy has a significant potential for energy saving

Over the past 10 years, the energy intensity of the Russian Federation's GDP has decreased by 9%, and the energy intensity has not decreased in the past 4 years. The goal of reducing the energy intensity of Russia's GDP by 60% while maintaining the current rate will be achieved only in 2043.

The specific consumption of heat and electricity in the residential sector in regions with similar climatic conditions differs up to 3 times.

By 01.07.2012, the multi-apartment building (MAB) should have been fully equipped with collective metering devices for consumed resources. After 7 years, the level of MAB equipment was 61%. The level of implementation of modern technologies in the field of energy saving: 27% of MAB commissioned in 2018 have increased energy efficiency classes (A++, A+, A, B, C), only 5% of MAB commissioned are equipped with ITP with weather regulation. As a result, today more than half of all existing MAB in the country (54%) consume twice as much energy as their modern counterparts.

The Russian economy has a significant potential for energy saving. The energy intensity of Russian GDP is 46% higher than the world level and 17% higher than that of Canada. The implementation of the accumulated potential will release significant additional volumes of fossil fuels for export, "green" the balance of energy consumed, reduce emissions into the atmosphere, and improve the quality of life.

Increasing energy efficiency can be achieved through the introduction of advanced technologies, such as steam and gas installations, combined heat and power plants, electrification and gasification of transport, modern energy-efficient building structures made of thermal insulation materials, controlled drive systems, energy-efficient lighting devices and lighting control systems, ITP with weather control, modern energy consumption meters.
