Energy efficiency

Comparative efficiencies of different measures to combat climate change are unclear. The Economist has presented an assessment for effectiveness of various efforts to prevent emissions of greenhouse gases. The Russian Social Ecological Union believes that the key way to solve the problem of climate change is combining development of a variety of renewable energy sources and reduction of energy consumption due to energy conservation and efficiency.

Banks are one of the biggest sources of funds for promotion of energy efficiency programs. A substantial part of the activities in this direction can be carried out by energy service contracts - the potential of this market is at least 500 billion roubles a year. According to the Russian Social Ecological Union, the key condition for achieving the Government's objectives for energy efficiency is cooperation between the state, the public, businesses and banks.

 Russian Social Ecological Union implements the information campaign "Energy efficiency is the biggest, cleanest and cheapest energy source in Russia." This campaign aims to show the public and other stakeholders that the potential resources of energy efficiency in our country can free up a huge amount of energy that can be used for the needs of power consumption.
