Contribution to Improving Energy Efficiency of Economy

Taking into account new requirements of the Order of the FTS of Russia No. 525-e dated 26 March 2015 and the Order of the Russian Ministry of Energy No. 398 dated 30 June 2014, the Management Board resolved to approve a revised version of the Federal Grid’s Energy Saving and Energy Efficiency Programme for 2015–2019 (Minutes No. 1326/2 dated 04 August 2015).


  • To ensure saving and rational use of the fuel and energy resources and reduce consumption of electricity for corporate needs during electricity transmission via UNEG grids by improving energy efficiency of the Company’s facilities and equipment
  • To put in place a system of electric power management and certification of operations based on requirements of ISO 50001:2011 “Energy management systems – Requirements with guidance for use”
  • To improve energy efficiency of the Company’s electrical grid facilities and equipment

In 2015, measures targeted at better energy saving and energy efficiency were implemented in the following key areas:

  • Reducing the process energy consumption during electricity transmission through UNEG
  • Fitting the buildings, structures, and installations that are owned by Federal Grid with metering devices for water, natural gas, thermal energy, and electrical energy
  • Reducing the electrical and thermal energy consumption in buildings, structures, and installations owned by Federal Grid
  • Reducing the consumption of fuel and lubricants used by Federal Grid to provide the electricity transmission services through UNEG
  • Developing and improving Federal Grid’s regulations and internal documents related to energy saving and higher energy efficiency

Our Company focuses on employee in-service training in energy saving and believes that such training plays an important role. To prepare and ensure an appropriate level of competence, in 2015 the Company arranged training in MES training сentres for the following categories of employees:

  • Operating employees of substations and administrative and technical staff on a topic: “Classification of electric grids by purpose. Management of electric grid operating modes. Energy saving, energy efficiency and energy management”
  • Specialists who are responsible for the implementation of the Energy Saving Programme and energy management. Topic: “Energy saving technologies and energy management in the energy industry”
  • Specialists: training was arranged as part of the “Day of Knowledge”; topic: “Energy saving, energy efficiency and energy management”
  • Training within the preparation for the youth day of Forum “Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving. Development of the Economy”, held by the RF Ministry of Energy


The corporate energy management system of Federal Grid Company has been certified for conformity with the international standard ISO 50001:2011 within the Executive Office and two branches (MES Volga and Samarskoe PMES). Over the period from April to May 2015, an external audit of this system was successfully conducted for conformity with the standard with respect to the provision of electricity transmission services via UNEG. No inconsistencies were identified based on the audit findings, including in activities on reducing losses. The auditors issued a recommendation on the extension of the previously issued certificate of conformity.

Strengths of the Federal Grid’s energy management system:

  • A detailed and manageable Energy Saving Programme
  • A well-designed system for monitoring of the implementation of targeted measures included in the Energy Saving Programme
  • High responsibility and competence of employees involved in the development and implementation of the energy management system
  • Promotion of information about advantages and methods of energy saving in the Company’s offices

Federal Grid is taking the following actions in order to reduce technological consumption (losses) of electricity in UNEG:

  • Optimisation of the circuit and mode parameters in operation and control of the electric grids
  • Reduction of electricity consumption for the own needs of substations
  • Construction, reconstruction, and development of electric grids, as well as commissioning of energy saving equipment

    In 2015, the companywide operational benefit of measures aimed at reducing electricity losses was a saving of 49.437 million kWh, which is equivalent to 6,080.9 tonnes of fuel equivalent; the financial benefit amounted to RUR54.8 million.

    The key measures aimed at the reduction of electric and thermal energy consumption in buildings, structures and installations:

  • Improving heat insulation of building walls
  • Replacing wooden windows with energy efficient equivalents
  • Replacing incandescent light bulbs in buildings with energy saving equivalents (including LED strip lamps)
  • Installing lighting control systems (installing of motion sensors)
  • Replacing old doors (mostly wooden ones) with new energy efficient ones
  • Modernising ventilation and air conditioning systems
  • Installing reflecting screens behind heating devices
  • Appointing responsible parties
  • Optimising the heating systems operations The key measures aimed at reducing consumption of fuel and lubricants:
  • Daily checks of tire pressure in vehicles
  • Adjusting fuel consumption norms
  • Thorough monitoring of vehicle use
  • Purchasing diagnostic tools for vehicle injection engines
  • Optimising travel routes using satellite navigation for continuous monitoring
  • Optimising travel routes, staff training, and priority for loads with the lowest unit fuel consumption.


In November 2015, within the youth day at the Forum “Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving. Development of the Economy” our team “Grids No.1” presented its project aimed at energy efficiency of substations and reducing losses for own needs. The project that involved the transformer heat extraction and utilisation was declared the best in section “Heat and Electric Power Industry and Young Leaders” and awarded the Diploma of the RF Ministry of Energy.

In 2015, the companywide effect of measures aimed at reducing consumption of resources for Federal Grid’s own needs amounted to 312.1 tonnes of fuel equivalent (742.99 thousand kWh, 1.06 Gcal, 56.400 litres of fuel and lubricants) to the total amount of RUR5.509 million.
