For the attention of the Russian wind power market participants

The results of the last two tenders (2013, 2014) for the selection of RES projects indicated that the provisions of the legislation to support renewable energy at the current market situation does not contribute to the development of wind power for three reasons:

  1. Low values ​​of the installed capital cost of compensation per 1 kW of installed capacity in connection with the exchange rate.
  2. Limited duration of the program to encourage the generation of renewable energy.
  3. Elusive starter (2016 - 65%) of the target degree of localization of wind power equipment in the Russian Federation.

       In this regard, the Russian Association of Wind Power Industry with it members - manufacturers of wind turbines worked out appeal to Deputy Prime Minister A. Dvorkovich request to revise the values ​​of some elements in support of the wind power.
