Regional Energy Saving Program Development - Comprehensive Approach

This practical methodology is the outcome of several years of work by a handful of experts in the development of regional and municipal energy saving programs. This document presents the principles and methods for the development of regional energy efficiency programs within various sectors based on the Russian economy examples. In addition, the methodology offers the principles and experiences of similar program from other countries. 


One of the key advantages of a comprehensive regional energy saving and energy efficiency improvement program is that such programs offer a platform for an energy efficient regional development strategy. Further, the combination of these regional strategies helps form an overall state strategy and improved energy efficiency boosts economic development in each region and, consequently, across the country as a whole. 


The presented methodology is one of many possible options for a program development, and should by no means be treated as the only one.
