Russia wind power market value, which was USD XXX billion in 2016, is expected to grow to USD XXX billion in 2017, at a CAGR of XXX percent. The Russian Federation has excellent potential for wind power generation. An attempt to utilize just 25% of its total potential would yield some 175,000 MW of power. The highest wind energy potential is concentrated along seacoasts, in the vast territories of the steppes, and in the mountains. Recently there has been an emerging interest in the use of wind power in the Russian Federation. Russia’s wind power potential amounts to 6,500 billion kWh of electrical energy per year. The coastlines of the Pacific and Arctic Oceans, submountain and mountain regions of the Caucasus, the Urals, the Altai and the Sayan Mountains have high wind potential. There are promising territories in all federal districts of Russia, including the following oblasts: Archangelsk, Murmansk, Volgograd, Astrakhan, Saratov, Chita, Sakhalin, Kamchatka, Omsk oblasts etc.; the following territories: Krasnodar Territory, Stavropol Territory, Altai Territory, Primorye Territory and others; and the following republics: Karelia, Komi, Dagestan, Kalmykia, Bashkortostan, Chuvashia, Tyva etc.
Russia’s Energy Strategy to 2030 estimates a total capital investment need for all types of generation capacity (including non-renewable energy) of USD 355-544 billion up to 2030 (at 2007 prices), or on average USD 17-26 billion per year (for all types of power generation capacity). This excludes any investment in network infrastructure, which is estimated at USD 217-344 billion, or on average USD 10-16 billion per year. For renewable energy capacity (including large hydro), the required annual investment in generation capacity up to 2020 is USD 11 billion per year.
The country’s main strategy to meet the growing need of power is to reduce the energy dependency by increasing the energy efficiency, increased use of renewable resources, nuclear sources and natural gas cogeneration.
