9 9 Russian Government Interest in Energy Management is Cost-Driven 1.Water and heat for public buildings cost $5 billion in federal subsidies, or 6 percent of budget 2.Savings of 30 percent could readily be obtained. 3.Subsidies to pensioners cost another 5 percent of GDP. - The U.S. and Russian governments have an agreement to cooperate on Federal Energy Management

10 10 Typical Problems of District Energy: Low Thermal Integrity of Buildings

11 11 Typical Problems of District Energy: Low Thermal Integrity of Buildings Shortage of funds to pay for heat services Poor quality of heat supply Lack of heat meters Poor building insulation and maintenance Lack of qualified personnel Lack of financing to improve facilities energy efficiency

12 12 Typical Problems of District Energy Aging Equipment, Poor Maintenance

13 13 Major Problems of Heat Supply: Boilers Lack of financing and low fuel stocks Shortened heat supply season and lowered temperatures Absence of fuel and heat metering Shortage of qualified boiler personnel

14 14 Major Problems of Heat Supply Networks: Pipeline Maintenance Wear, failures, leaks, broken insulation, inefficient pumps, old heat exchangers, poor controls, multiple owners, non-collection of heat bills, overcharging of customers.... Source: Center for Energy Efficiency, Moscow

16 16 Heat Transportation Problems in Russia Heat losses range from 20 to 70% Maintenance requires 50% of DH costs Only 2% of pipes are replaced annually High leakages ratio, lack and low quality of insulation; Buildings are overheated or under-heated

18 18 Closing Chernobyl by Saving Energy How did it work? U.S. AID/DOE grants through PNNL and others to develop project $30 million financing developed for buildings Kyiv City Administration invested $5 million World Bank invested $17 million in buildings and $100 million in DH system Results: ~30% savings in buildings alone $100 million financing developed for heat supply system

48 48 Overview of Privatization and Competition Privatization of natural monopolies requires special steps: Determining competitive parts of the system, separating them, introducing competition. Creating legal, institutional framework to regulate prices and return on investment. Commercializing–introducing hard budget constraints for–all power sector enterprises. Attracting investment through concessions or privatization. Source: Coming in from the Cold: Improving District Heating Policy in the Transition Economies (Paris: International Energy Agency, 2004)
