SUN GOES

FROM THE EAST

Green energy

The Far East of Russia has become a leader in terms of renewable energy 

innovations. This is where renewable energy projects have become economically 

justi

fi

 ed today. A long distance between a large number of populated localities 

and the Uni

fi

 ed Power System, as well as the complexity and high price of energy 

delivery create a huge potential for the optimization of the Far East power 

engineering by means of adoption of renewable energy technologies.

Thirteen solar power plants 

(hereinafter – SPP) including the 
northernmost one in the world 
(Batagayskaya SPP) have been 
put into operation on the Republic 
of Sakha (Yakutia) territory for the 
last 

fi

 ve years. Other three SPP 

will be building in 2016. Wind-dri-
ven power plants operate success-
fully in the Kamchatka Region and 

the Sakhalin Region. Neverthe-
less, major changes will happen 
in the industry. According to the
Holding “RAO Energy Systems of 
the East” estimates, the construc-
tion of solar and wind power gene-
ration is feasible for 178 populated 
localities of the Far East. Renew-
able energy facilities total capacity 
may be more than 146 MW.

Fuel Saving

In addition to the major power 

plants, electrical grids and heating 
networks, the Holding “RAO Ener-
gy Systems of the East” also 
operates more than 185 diesel 
power plants (hereinafter – DPP), 
which are located throughout the 
Far Eastern Federal District in the 
decentralized power supply areas. 
The replacement of DPP on the 
wind-driven power plants or solar 
panels is a necessary solution. 
Diesel generators, which are worn-
out and obsolete in a majority, 
require regular fuel transportation. 
It is necessary to provide fuel 
reserve for the hundreds of 
populated localities surrounded 
by cold desert or boreal forest 
every year. The fuel reserve must 
be suf

fi

 cient for use during heating 

season. Many settlements have 
a connection with supply centers 

by means of land transport or 
water transport for the short time. 
That connection is possible during 
the river navigation period or by 
using roads which appear on the 
frozen rivers and bogs territories. 
Power engineers and authorities 
often put a lot of efforts in order 
to provide suf

fi

 cient amount of 

fuel. Sometimes, transportation 
of cargo to the remote areas of 
Yakutia and Kamchatka requires 
to use several mode of transport 
and takes two or three years.

Due to high transportation ex-

penses and ineffective equipment 
operation in the remote areas of 
the Far East the prime cost for 
1 kW•h can reach 100 rubles. The 
fuel is a half of the prime cost. By 
reason of the fact that the diesel 
price becomes higher the regions 
are forced to increase tariff sub-
sidies.

The implementation of alter-

native energy sources has not al-

lowed to abandon DPP com-
pletely, but it has already pro-
vided signi

fi

 cant fuel saving. The

Holding “RAO Energy Systems of 
the East” designs a lot of renew-
able energy facilities assuming 
that it will replace up to 40 % of 
electricity produced by DPP. As 
a result of fuel saving power en-
gineers can get money and return 
investment in the purchase, deliv-
ery and setup of new equipment. 
After the end of the pay-off period 
due to fuel saving it will possible 
to stabilize and even reduce tariff.

Renewable energy develop-

ment in the Far East creates 
a real opportunity to improve the 
quality of live for many people. 
Wind-driven power plants and 
SPP in the isolated settlements 
are not environmental protection 
or desire to reduce carbon dioxide 
emission. For such populated 
localities renewable energy is the 
way to save expensive imported 
fuel and provide free access to the 
electricity all day and night.

Pioneers of

Renewable

Energy

People from the remote set-

tlement of Batamay, which is cut 
off by river from the central infra-
structure, remember very well that 
electricity is a bene

fi

 t of civiliza-

tion. “I was six or seven years, 
when electricity appeared in our 
little village. Electricity was avail-
able one day per week (in Satur-
day from 6 to 11 p.m.). That day 
was a holiday for us. Now, of 
course, the situation is different. 
We have a possibility to use elec-
tricity permanently. Furthermore, 
new technologies have come to 
us. Our SPP is a matter of pride. 
At 

fi

 rst, the interest and curiosity of 

the local population was very high. 
People came to observe the con-
struction process and asked the 
questions”, the autonomous DPP 
machinist of Batamay, Andrey
Berezovsky told.

PJSC “RAO Energy Systems 

of the East” and second-tier sub-
sidiary PJSC “Sakhaenergo” de-

cided to build the 

fi

 rst experimental 

SPP in Batamay four years ago. 
“When the decision to build in 
Batamay the 

fi

 rst SPP in Yakutia 

was made, we were glad, because 
it was a new project for us and 
for the village residents. We did 
not have experience of operation 
with such technologies, but as the 
phrase goes: what the eye fears, 
the hands do”, the autonomous 
DPP of Batamay chief, Vasily Pro-
todyakonov told about his native 
village. Initially, the SPP consisted 
of 52 solar panels with total elec-
tric capacity of 10 kW. The photo-
electric array was placed near the 
existing DPP. Economic bene 

fi

 t 

from new technologies became 
obvious pretty soon. After a year 
the specialists of “Sakhaenergo” 
have increased capacity of Bata-
may SPP up to 30 kW. However, 
the modernization of the SPP has 
not stopped yet. Power engineers 
decided to increase electric capa-
city by 30 kW in 2014. Currently 
the SPP produces 60 kW. The 
com pany’s investments helped to 
create multifunctional autonomous 
energy complex in the village, 
which consisted of automated DPP 
with electric capacity of 160 kW, 
SPP with electric capacity of 60 kW 
and energy storage system with 
available capacity of 86,4 kW•h. 
Electricity from the SPP reduces 
equipment deterioration, decreas-
es village dependence from sea-
sonal diesel fuel supply and allows 
to save money.

Power engineers serves solar 

panels regularly in order to keep it 
during all life cycle. They remove 
dust from the surface of solar 
panels by means of special brush 
in summer and remove snow in 
winter.

Caught Wind

The experiment was success-

ful because the SPP brought sig-
ni

fi

 cant economic bene

fi

 t and did 

not fall out during the winter frosts. 
Besides power engineers found 
suitable solutions for SPP con-
struction in the northern climate 
and knew about requirements to 
the equipment. After experience 

of Batamay others remote popu-
lated localities of the Republic of 
Sakha (Yakutia) began to develop 
solar power systems. Solar power 
plants with electric capacity from 
10 to 1000 kW appeared in 13 set-
tlements in the next four years.

At the same time the Holding 

“RAO Energy Systems of the East” 
began to develop wind power in 
the Kamchatka Region. The 

fi

 rst 

project appeared in the most re-
mote corner of the region (on the 
Commander Islands) by efforts of 
PJSC “Mobile Energy”. People 
often call that archipelago as “Is-
land of winds and fog” or “Island 
of everlasting autumn”. Cold oce-
anic current from the north faced 
there warm southern current. As 
a result there are mild winter for 
the northern latitudes, cool, rainy 
summer, strong winds and storms 
all the year round. It is unlikely that 
someone likes such climate, but 
that environmental conditions were 
ideal to start to use wind energy 
into the local power supply sys-
tem. Erection of two new French 
wind-driven power plants, which 
were combined with diesel genera-
tors and small boiler room, was 

fi

 -

nished close to Nikolskoye village 
(the only populated locali ty on the 
Bering Island and the archipelago) 
in June 2013. Union of wind-driven 
power plants, diesel generators 
and small boiler is necessary in the 
remote isolated power systems. 
Extra wind energy is converted into 
heat in the wind-diesel power plant 
(electric heating tubes of the boiler 
participate in the village heating 
during strong wind), and when 
wind is insuf

fi

 ciently strong, DPP 

provides power supply of the load.

For extra energy storage it is 

possible to use storage batteries 
but the price of such batteries is 
pretty high. But conversion of ex-
tra energy to heat is a cheap and 
practicable solution for the north-
ern latitudes.

Bering Island became an ex-

cellent test for “Mobile Energy” 
project team. As a result, “Mobile 
Energy” staff received experience 
of the equipment setup and oper-
ation taking into account climatic 
and geographical environment of 
the region.

The First

Megawatts

The next step of renewable 

energy development in the Far 
East was implementation of large-
scale projects. The 

fi

 rst time PJSC 

“RAO Energy Systems of the 
East” began to construct SPP with 
electric capacity more than 1 MW 
in Batagay village (regional center 
of the Verkhoyansk nomad camp) 
in 2015. The SPP construction in 
Batagay was a part of cooperation 
agreement focused on renewable 
energy development between 
PJSC “RAO Energy Systems 
of the East” and government of 
the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia).
Bata gay was among the 

fi

 rst 

worker’s settlements in Yakutia. 
Many people consider that Bata-
gay makes a contribution in the 
industrialization of the northern 
region. Local residents needed 
a reliable source of energy, which 
would be able to reduce power 
supply dependence of the village 
from expensive fuel and replace 
the only source of electric capa-
city – Batagayskaya DPP.

Harsh and cloudless winter in 

Batagay takes eight months of the 

Wind-diesel power 

plant in Nikolskoye 

village.

year, however insolation level is 
almost the same as in the south-
ern Russia during spring and sum-
mer. Extreme climate of Yakutia 
has high requirements for the SPP 
equipment: it is able to operate  un-
der the conditions of air tempera-
ture +40°C in summer and -45°C 
in winter. The photoelectric array 
consists of 3360 polycrystal pa-
nels “Suntech” with electric capac-
ity 300 W each. The SPP area is 
almost 4 hectares. The life cycle 
of the main equipment is 25 years. 
The SPP equipment is adapted to 
the climatic conditions of the polar 
region. For example, photovoltaic 
panels have a canting angle of 
15 degrees in the Crimea. Such 
angle in the north of Yakutia is 
53  degrees. Moreover, piles are 
erected there in the deep-frozen 
soil.

The 

fi

 rst stage of SPP will pro-

duce about 1,2 million KW•h per 
year. It will allow to reduce pur-
chase of diesel fuel for the village 
by 300 tons per year and save 
16 million rubles (at 2015 values).

More than 60 % of electricity 

tariff in the village Batagay is a fuel 
factor. Due to constant increase 
of the diesel fuel prices electricity 
generation becomes more expen-
sive as well.

“There are almost 4000 resi-

dents, nursery schools, hospitals, 
educational facilities and enter-
prises in the village therefore it 
is necessary to provide uninter-
rupted power supply there. Be-
sides new SPP will create reserve 
of power, which increase electric 
reliability of Batagay during maxi-
mum demand in autumn and win-
ter”, PJSC “RAO Energy Systems 
of the East”, Deputy General Di-
rector, Alexey Kaplun explains.

Also he states that a positive 

result was received due to a spe-
cial construction method, which 
was used during the implemen-
tation of the project. According to 
that method several facilities were 
constructed at the same time (it is 
important to note that all facilities 
were located close to each other). 
“The implementation of a major 
project in Batagay allowed us to 
reduce expenses on the construc-
tion low-power stations in the ad-

NATURAL POTENTIAL
OF THE FAR EAST

The Far East of Russia has unique potential in the 

fi

 eld 

of renewable energy. There are strong wind along the coast-
line of the Arctic and Paci

fi

 c Oceans, sunny weather on the 

mainland, potential of rivers, tides and geothermal energy. 
It can give hundreds gigawatt of power to provide the local 
residents needs and to have an impact on economy and en-
vironment of the region. According to “RAO Energy Systems 
of the East” estimates solar power plants and wind-driven 
power plants can develop the most rapidly. Average annual 
wind speed in the littoral villages of the Kamchatka Region is 
6-7 m/s. It means a large potential for wind power engineer-
ing development and bene

fi

 t for residents of the region. As 

a comparison: average annual wind speed in Denmark (the 
world leader in the 

fi

 eld of wind power engineering) is a little

more than 5 m/s. According to expert view wind potential 
of Kamchatka coast may be more than 30 billion kW•h per 
year. It signi

fi

 cantly exceeds current power demand of the re-

gion. The sunniest region of Russia is the Primorsky region. 
According to NASA DNI factor (level of solar irradiation) is 
about 1700 kW•h per square meter per year, or 4.5 kW•h per 
square meter per day there. As a comparison that factor is 
less than 1500 kW•h per square meter per year in Krasnodar 
region. The solar activity level varies from 700 to 1200 kW•h 
per square meter per year in the majority of isolated settle-
ments of Yakutia. That level of solar activity may seem pretty 
small. However, DNI factor is 0.9-1.1 thousand kW•h per 
square meter per year in Germany, which is the world leader 
in terms of installed capacity of solar power plants.

The synchronous operations 

gave opportunities to make cen-
tralized purchasing and delivery 
of the equipment and reduce 
construction time and outlay cost 
by means of effective use of the 
hardware and labour resources.

Currently PJSC “RAO Energy 

Systems of the East” considers 
the possibility of implementation 
of afore-mentioned SPP construc-
tion method (when several ad-
jacent SPP are built at the same 
time) in Olekminsky, Ust-Jansky, 
Verkhnekolymsky and Oimyakon-
sky regions.

The memorial tablet in honor of 

the end of major SPP construction 
is erected in the center of Batagay. 
The SPP has been of

fi

 cially  re-

cognized as the world’s northern-
most facility of photovoltaics. The 
relevant information is placed in 
the Guinnes World Records web-
site. The SPP will be keeping the 
leadership among north polar 
SPP for a long time. The experi-
ence of Batagay SPP will be ex-
tended to other settlements of nor-
thern Yakutia pretty soon. There 
is a plan to construct SPP over 
1 MW in Deputatsky, Ust-Kuy-
ga, Zyryanka, Zhigansk, Olenek
settlements.

Another large-scale project 

related to renewable energy was 
completed in the north of the Kam-
chatka Region in autumn of 2015. 
Wind-driven power plant with elec-
tric capacity more than 1 MW was 
built in Ust-Kamchatsk village.

Ust-Kamchatsk residents had 

believed until recently, that strong 
winds blowing in the village all 
year round did only harm. There 
were situations in the sixth-largest 
populated locality of the Kamchat-

ka Region, when the airport and 
the ferry across the Kamchatka 
river were closed by reason of 
storms. Sometimes even traf

fi

 c on 

the only road, which ran towards 
a regional capital through the cen-
tral valley of the half-island, was 
stopped.

The 

fi

 rst experimental wind-

driven power plant with electric 
capacity of 275 KW appeared 
in Ust-Kamchatsk in 2013. Start 
of a unique international project 
was in March 2014. At that time 
power engineers of the Far East 
and government of the Kamchat-
ka Region entered into a contract 
related to renewable energy de-
velopment with New Energy and

ment Organization (NEDO) from 
Japan. Besides power engineers 
of the Far East and government 
of the Kamchatka Region have 
signed a memorandum with Japa-
nese companies Mitsui & Co. and 
Komaihaltec Inc. The subject of 
memorandum was integration of 
the three wind-driven power plants 
(with electric capacity 300 KW 
each) into isolated electricity sys-
tem of Ust-Kamchatsk.

Japanese companies con-

sidered that afore-mentioned in-
tegration would be a pilot project 
and an opportunity for Research 
and Advanced Development. 
Equipment was provided free of 
charge, in order to test work me-
thods under the condition of of 
cold climate. “We had two main 
goals, implementing this project 
– solving the energy problems of 
Ust-Kamchatsk and expansion 
of advanced Japanese technolo-
gies”, the chairman of NEDO Kad-
zuo Furukawa explains.

Wind turbines produced by Ko-

maihaltec became a basis of new 
wind-driven power plant. The wind 
turbines were updated taking into 
account the climatic conditions 
of the Kamchatka Region. Japa-
nese engineers improved ther-
mal insulation and treated blades 
by a special coverage in order to 
prevent ice coating and snow ac-
cretion during winter. Wind turbine 

nacelle had passed inspection 
on the freezing resistance in the
giant refrigerator before it was 
sent in Russia. Temperature in the 
refrigerator was –40 °C in order 
to proof that hydraulic systems 
and gear unit were able to ope-
rate under the condition of of cold 
weather.

The 

fi

 

rst wind turbine pro-

duced in Japan appeared in the 
village in the end of 2014. The 
erection of the second and the 
third wind turbines were 

fi

 nished 

in September of 2015. Commer-
cial operation of the wind-driven 
power plant began in IV quarter 
of 2015. Annual electricity output 
of the wind-driven power plant is 
about 2 million kW•h per year. The 
wind-driven power plant in Ust-
Kamchatsk, replacing the DPP 
partially, will allow to save more 
than 550 tons of fuel. It is signi

fi

 -

cant value for the northern village 
with 4 thousand residents.

The collection and study of ope-

rational equipment data will have 
been going on during the year 
since the facility commis 

sioning. 

Ac cording to Declaration of Inten-
tions, if the pilot project con

fi

 rms 

the expected commercial ef

fi

 -

ciency,  the Holding “RAO Energy 
Systems of the East” will consider 
a possibility of further Japanese 
wind turbines expansion in other 
isolated areas of the Far East.

“We are interested in expansion 

advanced technologies, which will 
allow to improve reliability and 
security of power supply. We hope 
that the project in Ust-Kamchatsk 
will be a basis for further 
cooperation. Also we believe 
that many the same interesting 
projects will wait for us”, Alexey 
Kaplun says. Next stage of the 
wind-driven power plant can 
be built on Dembievskaya Spit. 
Many 

fi

 sh-processing  factories 

are located there. Those factories 
are main electricity consumers in 
the village. During 

fi

 shing  season 

in summertime electric energy 
consumption increased in 4 times 
on the 

fi

 sh-processing factories.

The cooperation between Rus-

sia and Japan became a good 
example. It was mentioned as 
a successful partnership of two 
countries during the meeting
between the Prime Minister of 
Japan Sindzo Abe and the Presi-
dent of the Russian Federation 
Vladimir Putin in May of the cur-
rent year. The cooperation will be 
continued in other regions of the 
Far East. During Eastern Eco-
nomic Forum (in September of 
2015) “RAO Energy Systems of 
the East” and Komai Haltec Inc 
have signed a memorandum. Ac-
cording to that memorandum, 
the companies are going to ana-
lyze the possibility of wind-driven 
power plant con 

struction with 

electric capacity of 1 MW in Tiksi 
village of Bulunsky District of the 
Republic of Sakha (Yakutia). Also 
the Holding “RAO Energy Systems
of the East” and Japanese dis-
tributor of equipment have signed 
a memorandum about intentions 
to explore an opportunity of wind 
turbines production or its separate 
units on the Russian territory of the 
Far East. Delegates of Japanese 
companies have already visited 
several companies from Primo-
rye and represented requirements 
for manufacturers. The selection 
of project participants will be car-
ried out taking into account the 
creation of territories of priority 
develop ment, as well as a new 
customs treatment in Vladivostok.

“I am con

 dent that our pro-

development will provide a big 
amount of orders for such produc-
tion. During last years, we have 
achieved good results in the im-
plementation of renewable energy 
facilities in the Far East. At the 
moment we should move the nec-
essary equipment production in 
the Far Eastern Federal District”, 
Alexey Kaplun said.

Expanding

Borders

During the implementation of 

renewable energy programs in 
the Far East, the Holding “RAO 
Energy Systems of the East” 
created its own know-how. For 
example, wind-diesel power plant 
facilities operate successfully in 
Novikovo village due to auto matic 
control system which was pro-
duced by the Holding companies 
during Research and Advanced 
Development.

It is not a secret for profes-

sionals that to establish an effec-
tive connection between a renew-
able energy facility and DPP is 
a quite dif

fi

 cult task. It is related 

with a fact that power leaps pro-
duced by wind turbine during 

fi

 tful wind impact on the electri-

cal power system. Under such 
circum stances power engineers 
are forced to limit a part of energy 
produced by renewable energy 
sources in the total power bal-
ance. Automatic control system of 
wind-diesel power plant allows to 
reduce power leaps in the electri-
cal power system and to manage 
by energy sources distributing 
electric load between wind-driv-
en power plants and DPP in de-
pendence to changes of electric-
ity consumption in the village and
wea ther conditions.

There are foreign-made auto-

matic control systems of wind-die-
sel power plant, but subsidiaries 
of the Holding PJSC “Yakutsk-
energo” and PJSC “Mobile Energy”
were able to develop its own hard-
ware and software complex. Soft-
ware and technical solutions for 
frequency maintenance and reac-
tive power compensation of that 
hardware and software complex 
are know-how. Before the installa-
tion of the automatic control sys-
tem on the constructed wind-die-
sel power plant, the system was 
improving by PJSC “Mobile Ener-
gy” for a year. The improvement of 
the system was ful

fi

 lled by means 

of a special experimental model, 
where possible emergencies were 
simulated. Automatic control sys-
tems of wind-diesel power plant 
produced by PJSC “Mobile Ener-
gy” allow to respond on the slight-
est changes of electric energy 
generation or consumption.

“Our own automatic control 

systems of wind-diesel power 
plant allow us to optimize the cost 
of all new renewable energy fa-
cilities signi

fi

 cantly. In addition, 

we do not except the possibility 
that the system could be commer-
cially successful in foreign mar-
kets because it could be used for 
the installation of renewable en-
ergy sources in isolated systems. 
There are no more than six com-
panies in the world, which used 
to develop the same intelligent 
system of connection. The price of 
such systems is millions of dollars. 
When we began to develop auto-
matic control systems of wind-
diesel power plant together with 
PJSC “Yakutskenergo” we often 

faced with incredulous looks. The 
system has already passed a test 
under actual operation conditions 
in Novikov”, CEO of PJSC “Mobile 
Energy”, Yuri Mirchevsky states.

Also specialists from compa-

nies of the Holding “RAO Energy 
Systems of the East” estimated 
results of the various solar panels 
operation (there are various types 
of solar panels such as monocrys-
tal, polycrystal and thin-

fi

 lm)  in 

order to determine the most con-
venient technology on the Far 
East territory.

Place for

Professional

Discussions

Renewable energy develop-

ment program in the Far East, 
implemented by “RAO Energy 
Systems of the East”, is ful

fi

 lled 

in cooperation with partners, in-
cluding foreign ones. Owing to 
such cooperation a number of new 
technologies, engineering solu-
tions and even 

fi

 nancial resources 

come to the Far East.

For example, French company 

Helios Strategia won a competition 
for the power plant construction 
in Batagay. Besides numerous 
companies from Germany, 
Switzer land, Austria, Korea and 
China compete with each other in 
order to supply equipment for the 
future power plants in the Far East 
of Russia. At the same time the 
companies “Sakhaenergo” and 
“Mobile Energy” adopt experience 
of other companies actively and 
ful 

fi

 

ll the construction of solar 

power plants and wind-driven 
power plants by its own efforts.

The international conference 

“Renewable Energy Development 
in the Russian Far East”, which 
took place in Yakutsk in June 2016, 
became an excellent discussion 
platform for the professionals of 
renewable energy area. The event, 
organized by the government of 
the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) 
together with the Holding “RAO 
Energy Systems of the East”, was 
attended by over 380 participants 
from 14 countries.

IMPLEMENTED RENEWABLE 
ENERGY PROJECTS

“RAO Energy Systems of the East” put into operation 

16 solar power plants and 3 wind-driven power plants in 
2012–2016. The implementation of renewable energy 
program will save 46 470 tons of diesel fuel annually, or 
2.06 billion rubles. Those funds will be used for the return 
of investments in renewable energy facilities. Besides those 
funds will become an effective tool for control tariffs. The 
implementation of renewable energy doesn’t only reduce the 
fuel expenses of the company. It will also reduce the subsidies 
from the regional budget to the local power engineering after 
the payback period of the project. New renewable energy 
facilities will replace up to 40% of electric capacity produced 
by existing diesel power plants.

Delegates of customers, equip-

ment suppliers, service providers,
regulatory authorities and experts 
in the 

fi

 eld of renewable energy 

came together to share experi-
ence and discuss problems and 
prospects of alternative energy
develop ment in the region. The 
event began with a plenary 
meetng “Renewable Energy in the 
Far East of Russia: Development
Prio rities and Prospects”. During
the plenary meeting the Repub-
lic of Sakha (Yakutia) head Egor 
Bori sov, General Director of “RAO 
Ener gy Systems of the East”
Sergey Tolstoguzov and the Swiss 
Ambassador in the Russian Fede-
ration Pierre Helg gave a speech.

“Renewable Energy in the Rus-

sian Far East will become a large 
trade market in the future and 
foreign companies and domes-
tic producers must strive to take 
a position there. More and more 
companies would like to represent 
innovative product samples at our 
exhibition and tell about it at the 
conference sessions every year. 
According to a goal of our event 
we strive to represent the best 
available technologies to potential 
customers and show the modern 
requirements of the market to sup-
pliers”, Sergey Tolstoguzov stated, 
opening the conference.

Delegates discussed issues of 

normative regulation of the indus-
try, project 

fi

 nancing, and espe-

cially the construction and opera-
tion of renewable energy facilities 
in isolated power system under 
conditions of extreme climate.

Everyone had a possibility to 

visit the exhibition dedicated to 
the conference. Yakutsk residents 
and guests of the republic had 
a chance to see the modern equip-
ment and high technologies. Solar 
panels demonstrated operation of 
heliostation in the central square of 
the city. Besides various technical 
innovations and an interactive ex-
hibition were presented there.

Interest of ordinary residents 

and investors concerning solar 
panels and wind turbines appea-
ring in the Far East shows that 
power engineers began to change 
shape and economy of the industry 
to develop renewable energy.

The Far East of Russia has become a leader in terms of renewable energy innovations. This is where renewable energy projects have become economically justified today. A long distance between a large number of populated localities and the Unified Power System, as well as the complexity and high price of energy delivery create a huge potential for the optimization of the Far East power engineering by means of adoption of renewable energy technologies.
