Energy saving and Increase of energy efficiency

Structure of energy saving program

The target indicators in energy saving and increase of energy efficiency under the programs are:
  • Energy losses;
  • Electric energy consumption for economic needs;
  • Heat energy consumption for economic needs;
  • Natural gas consumption for economic needs;
  • Consumption of other resources for economic needs;
  • Hot water consumption for economic needs;
  • Cold water consumption for economic needs;
  • Modern metering devices on retail energy market.

Target indicators in 2011:

Decrease of losses was influenced by the efficiency of measures taken by the branches. Increase of electric energy consumption for economic needs can be explained by commissioning of production facilities accepted under rental contracts and acquired into ownership. Decrease of energy price is due to actual average non-regulated energy prices on wholesale market in 2011 (lower than those forecast in 2010). The level of equipment with modern metering devices on retail market is 99% (of planned volumes) due to absence of requests from consumers related to installation of metering devices on lead-in points of multifamily houses in Chelyabenergo.

As of 2011 completion is 100%. 2011 expenses totaled RUR 623.84 mln, no VAT. Finance resources for energy saving program were investment program (RUR 558.63 mln), repair program (RUR 65.22 mln). Expenses calculated during the calculation of economic efficiency totaled RUR 608.08 mln. As a priority, IDGC of Urals, OAO takes measures to optimize (decrease) losses. By the measures overall effect in 2011 totaled 181.2 mln kW/h or 0.23% of overall supply. After the measures taken to decrease commercial losses, effect totaled 90.9 mln kW/h, decrease of technical losses due to managerial measures totaled 85.5 mln kW/h and technical measures 4.8 mln kW/h. Other factors have also affected 2011 target indicators besides effects stipulated by the program on energy saving.

Decrease of energy losses in physical terms was caused by exclusion of losses on grid complexes in the Sverdlovsk region (ESK of Polevskoy, MUP Ousskoe) and decrease of terms for readings in some distribution zones (transition from quarterly to monthly period). Decrease of expenses on loss purchases is due to the exclusion of Chelyabenergo cross-subsidy. Increase of resources for economic needs was due to commissioning of new facilities in Chelyabenergo and Permenergo. Besides, in 2011 there was a change in the heating system of the Kultaevo distribution zone in Permenergo (transition from centralized heating to electric heaters), a boiler house in the BES distribution zone in Permenergo finally engaged its full capacity as well as over 200 units of specialized vehicles were purchased under the investment program. These measures also increased consumption of resources (electric energy, fuel and gas).
