Russia To Improve Support Mechanisms For Renewable Energy Projects In Retail Markets


The Russian Ministry of Energy has developed and submitted to the Russian Government a package of regulatory changes aimed at improving mechanisms for renewable energy projects support in retail markets.

The government agency offers a comprehensive approach to the selection and implementation of RES-based generation projects in retail markets, including:

  • transition to technologically neutral selection, in which projects for construction of renewables would compete regardless of the technology used for generation by the criterion of the minimum price of electricity produced from RES, which will reduce the price burden on consumers in a region;
  • formation of price for electricity of RES generation objects based on the price in the application submitted by the investor for competitive selection, but not higher than the approved limit level, rather than at regulated tariffs.
