A New Model for Heating Markets
30 September 2016
10:00

The Ministry of Energy of Russia has issued a draft bill outlining a target model for the thermal energy market. The bill proposes changes to the system for regulating prices and economic relationships on the thermal energy market. Its aim is to reduce administrative pressures on business and to create economic incentives to improve the lamentable current state of the centralized heating supply system. Firstly, the role of the Single Heat Supply Organization (ETO) is set to change. The organization will become not only the sole purchaser and supplier of thermal energy within its area of activity, but also a centralized focus of accountability for the heat supply system with respect to both consumers and the government. To deliver on this task, the ETO has taken full responsibility for optimizing and developing the heat supply system as well as for improving its relationship with customers. Government authorities are monitoring the ETO’s efforts. The new market model proposes a switch from government regulation of all tariffs to contract prices on thermal energy. In order to protect the interests of end users, the price will be capped at the estimated heat cost from an alternative source — local boilers. The target model for thermal energy markets outlined in the above bill will be phased in gradually, allowing for the individual needs of regional and local thermal supply markets to be met. The transition will be implemented in cooperation with regional and local authorities at the level of the individual settlements and urban districts classed into specific price zones. It is expected that the new thermal energy market model will provide a stimulus for increased efficiency in heat production and bolster efforts to attract investment in the reconstruction of Russia’s outdated thermal supply system.
