The challenges for energy efficiency in Russia

Special to The Moscow Times, 4 July, 2012. Posted in Energy in Demand

Main Industry Characteristics

Almost 33% of the CO2 emissions in Russia in 2009 were emitted by the public electricity and heat sector, 20% were emitted from autoproducers (i.e installations producing their own electricity and / or heat) and 17% came from the manufacturing industry. Within manufacturing, the iron and steel industry is the largest emitter with 45% of emissions, followed by other energy industries (24%), non-metallic minerals (10%) and chemicals (5%).

Russia has considerable scope for cost-effective energy savings in the industrial sector due to its relatively high energy intensity and limited historical policy measures in this area.
