Russia holds enough energy-efficiency potential to slash primary energy consumption by 45 per cent. The government has therefore implemented energy-efficiency policies with emphasis on cross-industry and public-private collaboration. Such public-private partnership projects are now seen as a potential driving force behind a new kind of growth in Russia.
According to a 2010 World Bank study, Russia holds enough energy-efficiency potential to slash primary energy consumption by 45 per cent. As Russia is increasing its global competitiveness, the government is also implementing innovative energy-efficiency policies offering opportunities for the private and public sector.
Breakfast session at 3GF2013
The session focused on the challenges and opportunities for energy-efficiency projects in Russia and explore examples of how public-private partnership projects can drive a new kind of growth in Russia. First, energy-efficiency policies, programmes and initiatives in Russia were discussed. Second, the session took a close look at two examples of energy-efficiency projects: the Russia New Growth Partnership (RNGP) and the new UN Foundation initiative.
RNGP were explored as a model for further modernisation and energy-efficiency opportunities across Russia. Whereas the UN Foundation initiative is seeking to organise energy-efficiency businesses to help UN member countries in setting specific energy-efficiency improvement goals and implementing policies to achieve these goals.
