Energy sector and natural resources in Russia
Russian natural resources have, as a consequence of the quantity, a substantial impact on the global energy market and prices. As a key economic sector, the energy sector is strongly interrelated with the Russian overall economic performance. Due to issues such as poor management skills, worn-out equipment and machinery, and insufficient utilization of modern production technologies, the government of the Russian Federation is taking efforts to carry out a reform aiming at sector modernization, raising efficiency, and creating conditions for fair competition in the sector.
The need for high-tech environmental-friendly solutions for Russia’s natural resource industry sectors, likewise the country’s problem with supplying clean water to all citizens.
The energy sector is at the core of the economy and the main source of foreign currency revenues for the country. Russia is increasing the focus on environmental protection and energy efficiency. These issues are well known in Denmark and Danish industries have over the last 30 years worked hard on finding innovative and efficient solutions.

Resources and challenges
Russian natural resources, which contain 32% of the world’s natural gas reserves, and approximately 30% of the coal reserves, have, as a consequence of the quantity, a substantial impact on the global energy market. Russia is one of the countries that spend the most money on subsidizing fossil fuels, primarily natural gas. Of the 605 billion cubic meters of natural gas that Russia produces annually, 414 billion cubic meters satisfy the huge domestic consumption. The amount would be significantly lower if Russian consumers, industry, and power stations gas to the same prices as in the EU. In addition it would release considerable amounts of natural gas for export.
As a key economic sector, the energy sector is strongly interrelated with the
Russian overall economic performance. The government of the Russian federations is undertaking efforts to carry out a reform aiming at sector modernization, raising efficiency, and creating conditions for fair competition in the sector, which has always been strongly monopolized.
The present political situation are limiting the government’s ability to improve the sector and discouraging much needed private investment. However, as soon as the situation improves, the planned – and necessary – improvements are expected to get back on track quickly.
Among the critical issues for the development of the Russian energy sector as a whole there are poor management skills, worn-out equipment and machinery, and insufficient utilization of modern production technologies.
Environment – protection and improvements
In recent years, more emphasis has been put on environmental protection in Russia, and energy saving is one of the major priorities for the energy and utility sector’s development. Given the high level of equipment deterioration, the focus is on sector re-equipment using energy efficient technologies. One of the tools for energy saving strategy implementation is the state program of the Russian federation, energy efficiency and development of energy sector, valid from 2013 to 2020. The program covers diversified issues dealing with development of the oil & gas sector, the coal industry, production of electricity, and development and usage of renewable energy. For the purposes of energy saving and minimizing the environmental impact the program envisages replacing outdated equipment, rehabilitation and introduction of new facilities based on efficient technologies.
