Evgeny Gasho, the expert of the Analytical Center, moderated the roundtable on "Strategic vectors of development of energy efficiency: Challenges and Opportunities" at the XV International Symposium "Energy efficiency and energy saving" in Kazan.
"New vectors of development require new tools for development and the identification of reserves", said Mr. Gasho, opening the roundtable. "Energy saving is one of the most important reserves of industry and urban development." According to the expert, an important key is attention to the human capital rather than to "hardware".
"In the future we have the competency building, the staff training for work in the new environment. The experience of qualified energy auditors will allow to see new reserves and opportunities", said the expert.
The symposium included a meeting of the Government of the Republic of Tatarstan, which reviewed the implementation of the national program to improve energy efficiency and energy saving.
