Key moments

(Energy efficiency) forces economic growth, you can see this in other parts of the world, it stimulates the development of the SME sector, it raises industrial competitiveness …, and it’s also key on the agenda of Russia’s 2020 presidency.
Maria van der Hoeven
Our target by 2020 is to save a further 11% of our energy use, household by household. … If Russia was as efficient in energy use as the average OECD country, Russia would be saving the same amount of energy as Britain is consuming.
Michael Fallon
There is an urgency for energy efficiency which starts to be integrated in a country; this we see with our customers. First in energy intensive industry, it’s a question of competitiveness.
Jean-Pascal Tricoire
I truly believe that those people who are not engaged in energy efficiency through modernisation will eventually disappear from the market. They will not be able to survive as businesses.
Dmitry Konov
Energy efficiency is a great incentive for the development of the economy, but it’s not a separate part of the economic activity, and all sectors should be engaged in energy efficiency.
Alexander Novak
