Russia solar photovoltaic (PV) 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. Russia is located between 41 and 82 degrees north latitude, and solar radiation levels on its territory vary considerably. According to estimates, the average solar radiation in the remote northern regions is 810 kWh/m2 per year whereas in the southern areas it is more than 1,400 kWh/m2 per year. Solar radiation levels also exhibit great seasonal variations. For example, at latitude of 55 degrees solar radiation is 1.69 kWh/m2 per day in January, and 11.41 kWh/m2 per day in July. Gross solar energy potential is estimated at 2,300,000 mtce, technical potential at 2,300 mtce and economic at 12.5 mtce.
Solar energy potential is greatest in the south-west (North Caucasus, the Black and Caspian Sea regions) and in Southern Siberia and the Far East. Regions with significant solar resources include: Kalmykia, Stavropol, Rostov, Krasnodar, Volgograd, Astrakhan, and other regions in the south-west, as well as Altay, Maritime, Chita, Buryatia and other regions in the south-east. In some parts of Western and Eastern Siberia and on the Far East the annual solar radiation is 1,300 kWh/m2 esceeding levels in the southern regions of Russia. For instance, in Irkutsk (52 degrees north latitude) incoming solar energy reaches 1,340 kWh/m2, and in the Republic of Yakutia-Sakha (62 degrees north latitude) the figure is 1,290 kWh/m2.
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.
