Renewable Energy Sources in Russia: From the Wholesale Market to Supplying Energy to Isolated Regions
5 October 2018

A foundation to develop distributed generation based on renewables has already been built in Russia. The ongoing renewable development programme has enabled new solar and wind generation facilities to be commissioned at a faster rate, and for a components industry to be built. Each year, installed capacity of renewable energy sources on the Russian wholesale market approximately doubles, and will continue to grow at a consistent rate. A Russian presidential decree entitled «On the Russian Federation’s national targets and strategic objectives for the period to 2024» also outlines new approaches to supplying renewable energy to isolated regions in the Arctic, Siberia, and the Far East. What’s more, in certain conditions, renewables could prove an effective option for small settlements in Central Russia, which are currently supplied through grid extensions. What solutions are required at the regional level to support new renewable projects, and what additional ways are there to attract investors? What risks should be considered when developing renewable energy sources in isolated regions and small settlements? Are renewable projects attractive to industrial companies and/or small and medium sized enterprises? Are there any barriers hindering the development of renewable energy sources which must first be removed? Which other countries offer experience in the development of renewable energy sources which could be applicable to Russia?
