Yakutia adopts the law on renewable energy - this will speed up the development of alternative energy

Yakutia adopts the law on renewable energy - this will speed up the development of alternative energy

Nikolay Duraev, Deputy Minister of Housing and Public Utilities and Energy of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia):

- The high cost of imported diesel fuel makes energy supply very costly. At the same time, the system of human settlement and the potential of renewable energy sources geographically coincide. This allows achieving a positive effect from the implementation of priority projects. The use of renewable energy sources will significantly reduce the volume of fuel delivery and the volume of emissions of pollutants into the atmosphere by reducing the operating time of diesel power plants or their closure.

One of the important reasons for the unsatisfactory use of renewable energy in Yakutia is the lack of an appropriate legal framework, a clear state policy in this area, formed in the form of an appropriate legislative act, as is the case in many countries of the world. However, this summer, the government approved the bill "On renewable energy sources of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia)". This act provides for the creation of a system of legal, financial and economic mechanisms that provide economic incentives for the activities of energy producers from renewable energy sources.

The government of Yakutia together with the electric power industry has developed the Local Energy Optimization Project for the period up to 2018, which envisages the installation of solar power stations in the decentralized zone 64 with the total design capacity of 12 070 kW and the installation of 17 units of seasonal micro- and mini-HPPs Total design capacity of 3450 kW. Currently, the government, in conjunction with the federal authorities, is engaged in finding sources of funding for FLEA activities.

In Yakutia, three priorities have been identified in the development of alternative energy: wind power (wind turbines with horizontal and vertical rotation axes), solar power plants (SPP and solar collectors), and hydropower (small hydroelectric power plants and derivative small hydroelectric power plants). Wind power is the main focus. The economic potential of wind energy in Yakutia is more than 279 billion kWh.

In combination with the introduction of renewable energy, measures are being taken to increase energy efficiency. With 2010 for 2013 year in Yakutia more than 60 regulatory legal acts have been adopted in the field of energy conservation and energy efficiency. The State Program "Energy Efficient Economy at 2012-2016 and for the period up to 2020 year" and the Law "On Energy Saving and Increasing Energy Efficiency in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia)" were adopted. Energy meters and water meters are actively installed: for example, heat meters have already been installed in 90% of multi-apartment buildings.

One of the successfully implemented areas is the introduction of energy service contracts with the support of the government of the republic. Such a contract is a kind of investment contract, when the investor's costs are reimbursed at the expense of the savings achieved after the introduction of energy-saving technologies. If the proposed scheme did not help change the situation on energy efficiency, the contractor does not receive payment for their services. To date, 142 energy service contracts have been concluded, covering 312 objects of the budgetary sphere, housing stock and communal infrastructure in 16 municipalities. The savings from the implementation of these contracts amounted to 261 million rubles. The planned amount is more than 1,3 billion rubles.
