April 10). The Republic of Tatarstan occupies the 22nd position in terms of
energy intensity GRP. Rustam Minnikhanov, the President of the RT, announced
this today at the meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers of the RT.
was held at the Kazan Expo site and was devoted to the implementation of the
state program “Energy Saving and Energy Efficiency of the RT in 2018 and the

of the Cabinet of Ministers of the RT took place in the framework of the
Tatarstan International Forum on Energy Efficiency “TEF – 2019”. The 20th
International Specialized Exhibition “Energy. Resource Saving” and the 19th
International Symposium “Energy Resource Efficiency. Energy Saving” are also
taking place in the framework of the forum.
meeting, Anton Inyutsyn raised issues of the development of a network of gas
filling stations. In addition, the Deputy Minister of Energy of the RF proposed
to change the name of the forum, adding the word “ecology”. According to him,
when it comes to energy saving and energy efficiency, environmental issues are
Minnikhanov, the President of the RT, commenting on this proposal, agreed that
the environmental situation is very important in matters of energy saving. “I
think we will change the wording”, he said. “It is necessary to systematize the
tasks and how energy conservation affects the environment”.
to Rustam Minnikhanov, the specialized exhibition is a good platform for the
exchange of opinions and experience by experts in energy. The exhibition
presents many interesting solutions in energy efficiency, collected a lot of
new technologies, a large number of partner companies who are interested in
cooperation, said the President.
companies as Tatneft, Nizhnekamskneftekhim, Kazanorgsintez, KAMAZ, KPMO, Gorky
Plant and many others actively work on energy and resource saving in the
region, noted Rustam Minnikhanov.
according to him, today the same purposeful work should be carried out not only
in the real sector of the economy, but also in the socio-cultural sphere. So
far, this area is seriously lagging behind the activities carried out by our
large industrial companies, he said.
“We are in
the 22 position in terms of energy intensity of GRP, and we need to analyze
this situation, what actions need to be taken to understand where there are
reserves”, said Rustam Minnikhanov.
about the work on the modernization of power facilities, Rustam Minnikhanov
recalled that today there is a big task to modernize Zainsk GRES. “And we very
much hope for the support of the federal government”, said the President.
to Rustam Minnikhanov, today all elements of energy saving should be
implemented in such programs on the territory of the republic as a program for
the overhaul of apartment buildings, for capital repairs of social and cultural
facilities, as well as for new construction projects. “All modern energy
efficiency technologies should be implemented as part of this work”, he said.
criticism was voiced during the meeting about the inefficient use of heat and
electricity by state institutions.
“We are on
the 29 place in terms of electricity consumption for healthcare supply”, said
Rustam Minnikhanov. “In terms of heat consumption in educational institutions,
we rank 39, and in health care institutions – 35”.
President of Tatarstan proposed to develop a special program for the efficient
use of heat and electricity in the public sector.
“We need to
prepare a 2-3-year program in the public sector so that we can carefully look
at energy efficiency”, said Rustam Minnikhanov. “If we do not do anything,
expenses will increase by 4 times. Within six months, such a program should be
developed and adopted. Moreover, we saw at the exhibition that there are
partner companies that are ready to support”.
meeting, Rustam Minnikhanov noted a large project for the installation of
individual heating points in Kazan. “This is a great job – 1300 IHP and the
results of savings are 27%. It is necessary to fully implement this program in
the republic until 2022”, he said.
about the implementation of the program for the use of gas engine fuel, Rustam
Minnikhanov marked: this is a very serious project.
actively working with the Ministry of Energy, and the results are good, but
this is not what we want”, said the President. “We must multiply grow in terms
of sales and compressed gas, and liquefied gas. The topic of gas engine fuel is
relevant, taking into account our capabilities. We have all the necessary
infrastructure, big investments have been made in gas stations”.
to Rustam Minnikhanov, today it is also necessary to adopt a program on the use
of gas engine fuel for the agro-industrial sector, in terms of passenger
traffic and urban transport, which is engaged in construction and housing and
utilities, so that the whole system works.
Minnikhanov also raised the issue of renewable energy sources. “The world is
moving forward. The wind energy is especially relevant today. We have many
opportunities there. Three sites were investigated in Tatarstan, and all three
turned out to be suitable for use”, said Rustam Minnikhanov.
At the end
of the meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers of the RT, an agreement was signed
on information exchange in the development of renewable energy sources between
the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the RT and PAO “Enel Russia”, reports the
press service of the President of the RT.
