Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev signed a decree on the promotion of renewable energy sources on the wholesale market
The document states the rules for determining prices for power of generation facilities, which operate on the basis of renewable energy sources, ensuring the return of the invested capital, and the level of its profitability.
Measures to support renewable energy have been adopted
On May 23 the Government signed a package of measures to support renewable energy sources (RES) through the mechanisms of the wholesale electricity market.
According to a source familiar with the latest version of the document, support parameters were adopted in a shortened version, which Prime Minister was reported in mid-April by supervising Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich. In particular, the target amount of power generated by renewable energy sources remained at the level of 6 GW by 2020. The reason for delay in signing is connected with the Regulations of the Ministry of Industry and Trade, under which the Ministry had no authority to check the level of localization of equipment for renewable energy plants. It is one of the main parameters that determines the amount of support, which the generator can expect. Now at the government meeting the Regulations have been amended, and the Ministry of Industry and Trade received authority. The first tenders to be held no later than September 30.

RAWI comment on establishment of a new Wind Energy Association in Russia
Dear colleagues, members of the Association, ladies and gentlemen!
Recently, from the members of RAWI we found out that many of them received from former employees of RAWI - Vice-President Anatoly Kopylov and CEO Victoria Matkowskya a declaration on establishment of a new Wind Energy Association and suggestion to participate in the constituent assembly.
At the request of RAWI members and media we make a comment on this event.
Debates on localization are heating up, ambition should give way the benefits!
The conflicts around the package of measures to support the development of the national system of renewable energy, which from day to day would be signed by Dmitry Medvedev, are spreading.
A number of operators and market experts (including RSPP) sent a letter to Arkady Dvorkovich to review under regular standards for localization.
In the current version of the document there is a requirement of 35 percent localization of production by 2014, which, according opinion of the authors, is excessive and even harmful for the development of renewable energy sources (RES) in the Russian Federation.
RAWI welcomes a new member
This is LLC "EkoMurman." The company is engaged in manufacture, sale, installing and maintenance of wind and solar power plants. Here's how they speak about themselves: "We set a task to provide the inhabitants of Russia with a quality and reliable tool to ensure uninterrupted autonomous power supply, give aesthetic pleasure, and as a result to improve their life."

COMPETITION "WIND POWER IN FOCUS"
Dear friends and colleagues!
RAWI has a suggestion for all of you. Let's join our efforts and collect a photo archive on wind power industry.
Alternative energy is not only an environmentally friendly and science-driven sector of economics and it's also not only a new approach to the energy generation which saves earth resources, starts-up economics and industry and creates new working places.
Alternative energy also means aesthetics. Wind turbines design is ergonomic, appealing and very often "cosmic" - typical XXI century design.
Wind turbines whether on land, off-shore, as part of landscape and while being assembled or in operation could be portrayed on your photoes. You can take pictures of steel towers and plastic blades, new electric generators and wind unit management systems. People like adjusters and fitters can also be in focus.
Press here to look the photos of our colleagues, as an example.
We hope that your pictures would become part of Russian wind power industry early chronicles.
In the beginning we plan to post you photos on RAWI website. If we receive many interesting photos then it could be possible to arrange an off-line exhibition.
For the photographers with the most impressive shots RAWI foresees encouraging prices.
You can send the pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org
