The electric power industry is the cornerstone of all economic activities and makes a significant contribution to the countrys national security and socioeconomic development. One of the risks of energy security is the high level of wear and tear of the fixed production assets of fuel and energy companies as well as the low level of efficiency of their usage and insufficient renovation. At present, Russia is systematically working to consolidate its power grid with a phased reduction in the number of local grid companies (LGC), the creation of a single centre of responsibility to ensure reliable and high-quality power supplies, as well as the establishment of efficient technological infrastructure that is consistent with international standards. Such work is needed due to the fragmented structure of the power grid, low levels of service reliability and quality, and high operating costs, which makes it impossible to pursue a unified technical policy and entails a high level of losses. The actual pace of consolidation has been lower than planned. Breakdowns in the power distribution grid remain frequent, with a high number of accidents due to the aging of fixed assets. The reasons for this are: a poor level of regulation and the misallocation of tariff sources. LGC are the main ones causing problems with the misallocation of tariff sources, which can primarily be attributed to small LGC based on the quantitative indicators and parameters of power grid facilities (PGF). The unsatisfactory technical condition of PGF is not an isolated, but a systemic problem, which means that additional measures need to be introduced to reduce breakdowns and ensure the reliability of power supply to consumers. To solve this problem, clarifications have already been made to the criteria for classifying the owners of PGF as LGC, which will help to set a tariff for power transmission services to professional LGC that primarily engage in such activities. A single centre of responsibility for reliable power supplies is being created in the countrys regions. What mechanism is preferable for receiving power supplies rent or outright purchase? What sources should be used for such purchases so that consumers do not pay twice? What sources should be used to ensure that unowned facilities are consistent with standard technical conditions? What should be done to organize the maintenance of the grids of gardeners non-commercial partnerships? How can the reliability of power supplies in isolated areas be improved?
