    Russian govt to prepare by July 2022 plan to construct HPP amid low-carbon agenda

    December 7, 2021 - Interfax Russia & CIS Energy Newswire


      MOSCOW. Dec 7 (Interfax) - Russian President Vladimir Putin has instructed the government to prepare and approve a plan regarding the construction of hydroelectric power plants domestically, according to the text of the president's instructions following the government's meeting in early October on developing the fuel and energy complex, which Interfax has reviewed.

      "In order to maintain the low-carbon energy balance of the electric power industry, [the government must] prepare and approve a schedule for constructing hydroelectric power plants on the territory of the Russian Federation," Putin instructed.

      The deadline for fulfilling the president's instruction is July 1, 2022.

      The document also proposes developing by March 2022 plans to construct pumped-storage power plants with output capacity up to 5 GW "with defined sites for their construction" in order to improve the operating efficiency of renewable power source facilities and manageability in the Unified Energy System (UES).

      In terms of specific projects in the area of hydropower, the Cabinet of Ministers, jointly with regional authorities, plans by February 2022 to review and consider the feasibility of resuming the Krapivinskaya HPP project in the Kemerovo Region.
