Guide – Heat supply in Russia.
Project financing in Russian municipal heat supply
What economic and technical requirements should be considered for renewing the Russian heat supply system? What are the alternatives? Which financing options exist for the necessary investments? And which regulator framework conditions are necessary to accelerate modernisation of the heat supply system? German and Russian experts offer practical answers to these questions in this Handbook. In this context, the experience gained in refurbishing the East German district heat network after reunification is also evaluated.
A key aspect in the renewal of the heat supply system in Russian cities lies in mobilising private capital and establishing competition and free market conditions for the forthcoming investments. For this reason, the Handbook concentrates on financing strategies and approaches towards private-sector financing of the investments that lie ahead. Also the question of the operator structures and the general conditions necessary for sustainable low-cost, high-performance heat supply in Russian cities (e.g. transparent and consumption-based billing of heating costs) are explored.
Besides dena experts, specialists from the Bremen Energy Institute (BEI) and the Moscow Institute for Urban Economics (IUE) participated in drafting the contents of this Handbook.
