Start of campaign to prepare Russian Federation constituent regions for the 2017–2018 autumn and winter season


The government commission of the (federal) headquarters under the Ministry of Energy of Russia charged with securing electric power supply has started holding field meetings to prepare for the upcoming autumn and winter season.

The key objectives of the federal headquarters are:

  • coordinating the activities of federal executive agencies, executive agencies of Russian Federation constituent regions and organizations for preventing and eliminating consequences of power cuts and ensuring safe operation of electric power facilities and power installations of electric power consumers;
  • coordinating ongoing information exchange between federal executive agencies, executive agencies of Russian Federation constituent regions and electric power stakeholders in the event of emergencies at electric power facilities.

The Far Eastern Federal District was the first to have the progress and urgent issues of its preparation for the autumn and winter season discussed, followed by the Urals Federal District. The government commission members will be reviewing other regions’ preparedness until October. The results of the reviews will be summarized at the All-Russia Meeting on Preparation for the 2017–2018 Autumn and Winter Season to be chaired by Alexander Novak, Russia’s Minister of Energy. The event will take place as part of the Russian Energy Week.

For reference:
The ‘Russian Energy Week’ Energy Efficiency and Energy Development International Forum (REW)will take place at the Manege Central Exhibition Hall in Moscow on 3–7 October 2017. The forum will be attended by the heads of energy companies, leading global experts, and media representatives. The main goal of the event is to discuss the current global energy agenda, identify the main areas for the development of the fuel and energy industry, and search for optimal solutions to respond to existing challenges.
