RESE "RAO ES of the East" can save 2 billion rubles

OJSC RAO Energy Systems of the East with the full-scale implementation of its alternative energy program throughout the Far Eastern Federal District can save more than 54 thousand tons of diesel fuel annually. This was stated by the Deputy General Director of RAO ES of the East Alexei Kaplun, speaking at the IV annual conference "The Future of Renewable Energy in Russia", the press service of the energy company reported.

This amount of fuel corresponds to about 2 billion rubles (in 2014 prices, excluding VAT). These funds will be used to return investments in renewable energy facilities, and then will become an effective tool to contain the tariff. The implementation of the program for creating generation based on renewable energy sources, in addition to reducing the costs of energy companies for fuel, will reduce the volume of subsidies allocated by the regions for local energy. “We make projects interesting not only for us, but also for the regions where we operate,” stressed Alexey Kaplun. “This makes our program fundamentally different from all other proposals. This is important for us, because we live here. "

The top manager of the Far Eastern energy holding stressed that the industry needs regulation, but within reasonable limits. He noted that the only really necessary solution would be the introduction of long-term tariff regulation to achieve payback of generation. If for "big" energy it takes 20 years, RES will be enough 10-15 years. Fixing the tariff will create clear conditions for potential investors, and RAO ES of the East will be able to independently attract third-party funds. Now the special tariff policy for alternative energy facilities is regulated by direct agreements with regional administrations, but such documents do not provide sufficient confidence for those who are ready to invest in these projects.

Aleksei Kaplun also called for caution in approaching the requirements for localization of equipment: "We understand the situation. But the fact is that the requirements for equipment are always different - in Yakutia alone, in Kamchatka others, on Sakhalin are still others. For example, in the village of Batagai, where we will install solar panels, the annual temperature drop is up to 100 degrees. What manufacturer can guarantee on an industrial scale the operation of its equipment in such conditions? Therefore, the equipment is made especially for us. "

At the end of the speech Alexey Kaplun stressed once again that the RES program is being implemented exclusively to reduce costs in the holding companies in conditions of expensive small generation. He stressed that RAO ES of the East will not implement projects to the detriment of its own interests.

RAO ES of the East Holding is implementing a comprehensive program for the introduction of renewable energy technologies in the Far East, which provides for the construction of more than 170 RES facilities with a total capacity of 120 MW. At the moment, the Holding already operates six solar power plants and four wind power plants. The second phase of the wind-diesel complex in Ust-Kamchatsk, where Japanese-made wind turbines will be used, is under construction. Also there is a preparation for the implementation of SES in the village Batagay, which will become the largest solar power station north of the Arctic Circle.
