Moscow’s power complex is one of the largest in the world. It provides resources to a city of 12.5 million people. At the same time, the Russian capital’s utility systems remain highly safe and reliable.
The existing power capacity, which is necessary for a rapidly developing metropolis, allows consumers to enjoy a stable and regular energy supply while meeting the demands of the city’s programmes and infrastructure projects. The city has not suffered a single consumer blackout for the eighth year in a row.
The sustainable development of Moscow’s energy sector allowed for a 31.1% reduction in the energy intensity of the gross regional product in the period from 2011 to 2018. By 2020, this reduction is expected to hit 40%, fulfilling the objectives set by the Russian government.
The State Atomic Energy Corporation ROSATOM is a global technological leader. It is one of the Russian Federation’s largest companies and one of the country’s largest taxpayers. It is comprised of assets in nuclear power, power engineering, and NPP design and construction. ROSATOM is Russia’s largest electricity generating company, producing 202.868 bln kWh of electricity in 2017 (196.366 bln kWh in 2016) or 18.9% of the total electricity generated in the country. ROSATOM has the world’s largest portfolio of foreign construction projects (35 NPPs in 11 countries). ROSATOM produces approximately 3,000 tons of uranium annually, not including foreign production. Russian and foreign (especially Kazakhstani) raw material deposits will be enough to supply ROSATOM’s domestic and international projects for the next hundred years. ROSATOM covers 17 % of the global nuclear fuel market. ROSATOM also manufactures equipment and produces isotopes for nuclear medicine, carries out research and material studies, produces supercomputers, software, and different nuclear and non-nuclear innovative products. ROSATOM’s strategy includes the development of clean energy projects, including wind energy. ROSATOM is comprised of over 300 enterprises and organizations, including the world's only nuclear icebreaker fleet. ROSATOM is tasked with the uniform implementation of state policy on the uses of atomic energy as well as the fulfilment of the Russian Federation’s international obligations with regard to the peaceful uses of atomic energy.
