Russian Ministry of Energy plans to reduce energy consumption by improving lighting equipment efficiency
The Russian Ministry of Energy plans to limit the consumption of non-energy-saving incandescent lamps over 50 watts, Russian Deputy Minister of Energy Anton Inyutsyn reported.
Inyutsyn said the industry is ready to take such a step. ‘In recent years, a sufficient manufacturing base has been established and the cost of energy-saving lamps has decreased by roughly 60–70%. Over the last five years, the share of LED-type lighting equipment has grown from 2% to 28% on the entire domestic market’, Inyutsyn said. According to data from the Ministry of Energy, lighting currently accounts for about 13% of annual energy consumption throughout the country.
The Ministry of Energy will submit a proposal to the Government of the Russian Federation by 1 October 2017 to reduce the level of incandescent lamps.
Measures to reduce energy consumption will be one of the discussion topics during Russian Energy Week. Representatives of the expert community and energy companies will take part in the discussions.
On 11 October 2022, in anticipation of the Russian Energy Week 2022 International Forum, the Russian Energy Agency of the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation and the Roscongress Foundation with the support of the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation will hold the research-to-practice conference ‘Territory of Energy Dialogue’. It will be dedicated to the sustainable development of the fuel and energy complex.
