3 attract investments in energy-efficient projects Sakhalin received a diploma of the Ministry of Energy
On November 21, on the sidelines of the III International Forum on Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving - ENES 2014, Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Arkady Dvorkovich presented the Governor of the Sakhalin Region, Alexander Khoroshavin, a diploma testifying to the effective policy of the regional authorities to attract private investment in energy efficient projects, SakhalinMedia news agency reported citing press service of the head of the region.
In October this year the region was highly appreciated by the results of the conducted inspection by the specialists of the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation for the use of federal funds for the implementation of energy saving measures. In addition, positive feedback was received by the practice on the islands of attracting extra-budgetary investments in the fuel and energy sector and housing and communal services, which is quite rare in Russia as a whole.
As Alexander Khoroshavin pointed out today during one of the panel discussions of the forum, regional authorities are focusing on attracting long-term loans to the fuel and energy sector and utilities. This allows you to plan work to improve the efficiency of various objects so that they have little effect on the growth of utility tariffs (not higher than the rate of inflation).
- As for other sources of extrabudgetary funding in the Sakhalin Oblast, in addition to financial institutions. This investment is made by manufacturers of energy-efficient equipment and materials. As well as their official dealers or organizations that signed agreements on attraction of extrabudgetary funds with the manufacturer. In addition, we intend to attract funds from repair and construction organizations and enterprises engaged in extraction, production of fuel and energy resources. What is the benefit of the investor? First of all, it gets a reliable market for its energy-efficient equipment, materials and technologies. And it is also guaranteed to participate in the further implementation of the project activities, "said Alexander Khoroshavin.
He added that such a mechanism has already received practical implementation in a number of municipal entities of the Sakhalin region.
- I am convinced that raising funds from non-budgetary sources in the fuel and energy sector will reduce the burden on the regional and municipal budgets, significantly increase the social responsibility of business, expand the use of energy-efficient technologies, improve the quality of provision of housing and communal services, ensure full accounting and regulation of energy consumption , reducing the level of their losses, reduce the number of accidents. And, on the whole, it will have a beneficial effect on the development of the regional economy and on improving its competitiveness. This means it will lead to a further improvement in the quality of life of the Sakhalin and Kuril residents, "the governor said.
