In the context of a dynamic change in the structure of the global energy balance associated with the processes of reducing the carbon intensity of GDP, the development of localized technologies for the production of renewable energy sources is important and necessary. This was announced by Dmitry Vakhrukov, Director of the Department of State Regulation of Tariffs and Infrastructure Reforms of the Russian Ministry of Economic Development during the online conference of "Kommersant" PH.

"At the same time, the program to support the development of renewable energy sources based on the declared amounts will not play a significant role in changing the structure of the Russian energy balance in the direction of "greening" in the medium term," Dmitry Vakhrukov said.

According to him, it is necessary to balance the sources of financing for the development of renewable energy technologies which are more related to industrial development programs than energy development.

"As part of the development of the second support program, it is necessary to solve the tasks of minimizing the non - market load on electricity consumers associated with supporting renewable energy sources, including creating a system of voluntary demand for carbon-neutral energy through a system of green certificates and bilateral agreements," Dmitry Vakhrukov commented.
