Energy conservation and increased energy efficiency

History

The summary program for energy conservation and increased energy efficiency for 2011-2015 was approved by the Board of Directors on May 6, 2011 (Minutes No. 135 dated May 10, 2011). The adjusted program was approved by the Board of Directors on October 3, 2011 (Minutes No. 149 dated October 6, 2011).

This program provides the following targets for energy conservation and increased energy efficiency:

  • reducing electricity losses from 11.15% of overall output to the grid in 2010 to 9.2% in 2015;
  • reducing electricity consumption for business needs by 1.87 million kWh in 2011-2015;
  • conserving 2,052 million kWh in 2011-2015, which is equivalent to 707,000 tons of standard fuel, or 8,416 million rubles in value terms.

  Total 2,475 3,107

The exceeding of the targets for electricity savings is attributable to the following activities:

  • additional raids to identify unmetered electricity consumption, the need for which was revealed by an analysis of the balance of the power grid nodes;
  • preemptive work to build and rebuild power transmission lines, substations and transformer stations.

The reduction in the actual consumption of resources (electricity, heat, gas, hot and cold water) for business purposes compared with the targets is attributable to the following factors:

  • the installation of meters to track the consumption of resources was fully completed in late 2010. Actual consumption of resources for 2011 is based on the meter readings whereas the targets for 2011 were calculated based on standard resource consumption;
  • warm weather in November-December 2011;
  • a reduction in the actual consumption of motor fuel in 2011 compared with the targets due to a decline in idle running by transport vehicles resulting from the optimization of the list of gas stations (nearer to the transport vehicle base) and changes to the transport vehicle base (due to an increase in the number of vehicles, some of them were transferred to the EPGZ, i.e. closer to the sites of potential operations);
  • the transition from a coupon system for vehicle refueling to a card system and, consequently, increased control and transparency over the refueling process;
  • the purchase of new equipment with less fuel consumption;
  • monitoring the work of transport vehicles with the use of the “Sphere” system (309 transport vehicles).

«The EFFECT FROM THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ACTIVITIES AIMED AT REDUCING ELECTRICITY LOSSES IN THE COMPANY’S GRIDS TOTALED 280 MILLION KWH, INCLUDING 34 MILLION KWH FROM THE IMPLEMENTATION OF TECHNICAL ACTIVITIES AND 246 MILLION KWH FROM THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ORGANIZATIONAL ACTIVITIES»

All delivery points for electricity, heat, natural and hot and cold water at production and business buildings and facilities are equipped with meters.
