Svetlana Nikonova, Deputy General Director of PJSC “Quadra – Power Generation” for economy has taken part in the roundtable discussion “Heat Supplies Reform: New Drives and First Results”, held under the supervision of Vyacheslav Kravchenko, Deputy Minister for the Energy Industry of RF, within the framework of the International Forum for Energy Efficiency “Russian Energy Week” (REW) in Moscow.
The representatives of the generating companies and authorities summed up what they had managed to do for the past year in order to introduce the new model of the heat market, as well as discussed the difficulties on the way toward its implementation in regions.
“There are two aspects in the issue of the heat supplies reforming: the authorities’ expectations and business’ hopes. The authorities’ main expectations in respect of the new conditions, new format of cooperation inside the system are to bring discipline to the price and technological areas. The business’ hopes concern the discipline as well. However, it should be noted that they will not work without formation of the consumption culture. As a matter of fact, we work on its creation in ten regions of our presence,” – Svetlana Nikonova stressed.
The participants of the roundtable discussion were equally of the opinion that large work had been performed for the past year. However, a number of enactments that govern the rights and duties of not only the authorities and heat supply entities, but also consumers must be finalized.
