On 16 September the Analytical Center has hosted the meeting of the Council of the Russian Association of Energy Service Companies (RAESCO).
RAESCO has many goals and tasks regarding the consolidation of the position of the professional community organizations working in the field of energy conservation and energy efficiency. First of all, these are the tasks aimed at developing the energy activity in all spheres of the national economy, including the housing sector, public sector, industry, housing and communal services sector, settlements lighting and other areas. These goals and tasks have been formulated during a meeting of the Association and now they must be implemented in practice. On the success of their decisions depends not only the activities of the Association, but also the success of the development of energy service activities in the country as a whole.
Members of the RAESCO Council have analyzed and adopted the standard titled “Measurement and verification of energy efficiency”, which is the first standard of the Russian Federation in this area and it will allow to assess the indicators of energy efficiency and energy savings volumes during the implementation of specific projects and energy saving measures.
The educational and training program for specialists in the field of energy saving and energy efficiency has been approved during the meeting. It will be used for training the staff of organizations that are members of the RAESCO and for experts within the public sector (the Analytical Center plans to take part in the organization of this training), and well as a wide range of people interested in improving their skills in the field of energy services.
