Moscow’s energy infrastructure is one of the most extensive in the world, providing power to the 12.5 million people in the city. The Russian capital boasts a stable and reliable energy supply.
The existing capacity necessary for the rapid growth of the city means consumers enjoy a stable and uninterrupted energy supply and the energy requirements of promising urban programmes and infrastructure projects are met. It has been nine full years since the city suffered from an emergency power outage.
The sustainable development of the energy infrastructure has enabled a 33.3% reduction from 2011 to 2019 of the value of the energy sector as a percentage of the gross regional product. In 2020, this should drop further to 40%, which meets the goals set by the Government of the Russian Federation.
