Rationales for a domestic bioenergy market But the

Some signs of progress came in 2009 with the launching of the Federal Law “On Energy Saving and Increasing Energy Efficiency” and the Energy Strategy up to 2030. Governmental policy addressed renewables through the broader agenda of Amprenavir efficiency. The 2009 Decree on “Main Directions for the State Policy on Energy Efficiency of the Electricity Sector on the Basis of Renewable Energy Sources Until 2020” contains quantitative targets for electricity generation from renewable energy, namely 1.5% and 4.5% in 2010 and 2020, respectively, and an outlook towards 8% in 2030. The target of 1.5% in 2010 has failed and it is unlikely that the other upcoming targets will be met [33]. Recently, in the State Programme on “Energy Efficiency and Energy Development” for the period 2013–2020 the Russian government has decreased the 2020 objective for electricity production from renewable energy sources to 2.5% [34]. Renewable energy targets in Russia are rather flexible and can change quickly over time.
