Modernization of the Housing and Utilities Sector as a Means to Reduce the Energy and Carbon Intensity of the Russian Economy
Another area that we have completely forgotten is the area related to buildings. I am not talking about in-house systems. I am talking about building entrances and the energy that goes through the central heating system – we need to work it out and make it so that the residents could get both heat and hot water supply comfortably.

The Future of Russia’s Heat Supply
About 30% of Russia’s electricity today is generated in cogeneration; for us it means that heat provides for rather low prices on electricity generation. Therefore, what happens on the electric market will largely depend on what happens in the heat supply market
