Structure of the industry of power in 2000

Main objective of reforming of power industry of Russia – increase in efficiency of the enterprises of the industry, creation of conditions for its development on the basis of stimulation of investments, ensuring reliable and regular power supply of consumers.

With respect thereto in power industry of Russia there were radical changes: the system of state regulation of the industry changed, competitive market of the electric power formed, the new companies were created.

Image:Структура отрасли электроэнергетики России в 2000-м году.png

During reform the structure of the industry exchanged: there was separation estestvennomonopolny (electric power transmission, supervisory control) and potentially competitive (production and sale of the electric power, repair and service) functions, and instead of the former vertically integrated companies performing all these functions the structures specializing in separate types of activity were created.

The companies created during reform represent the enterprises specialized on certain types of activity (generation, electric power transmission and others) and the controlling corresponding profile assets. On the scale of profile activity the created companies exceed former monopolies of the regional level: the new companies integrate the profile enterprises of several regions, or are all-Russian.

Thus, conditions for development of competitive market of the electric power which prices are not regulated by the state are created, and form on the basis of demand and supply, and its participants compete, reducing the costs.

The purposes and problems of reform are defined by the government decree of July 11, 2001 No. 526 "About reforming of power industry of the Russian Federation".

Taking into account subsequent changes in a regulatory framework of the purpose and a problem of reforming Concepts of Strategy of JSC RAO UES of Russia for 2005-2008 "5+5" were concretized in ".

Target structure of the industry

Backbone networks passed under control of Federal Grid Company, distribution networks are integrated into the interregional distribution grid companies (IDGC), functions and assets of regional dispatching offices are transferred to the all-Russian System operator.

Assets of generation are also merged in interregional companies, and two types: the generation companies of wholesale market (the wholesale generating companies – OGK) and the territorial generating companies (TGC). OGK integrate the power plants specialized on production of almost exclusively electrical energy. The TGC include mainly combined heat and power plants (combined heat and power plant) which make both electric, and thermal energy. Six of seven OGK form based on thermal power stations, and one (RusHydro) – on the basis of the hydrogenerating assets. Thermal OGK are constructed by the exterritorial principle while TGC integrate stations of the neighboring regions.

The 1980-90th: Premises of reforming of power industry

In the 1980th years in power industry of the country signs of stagnation began to be shown: production capacities were updated much more slowly, than electricity consumption grew.

In the 1990s, during general economic crisis in Russia, electricity consumption volume significantly decreased, at the same time process of updating of capacities practically stopped.

The general situation in the industry was characterized by the following indicators:

  • On technology indicators (specific fuel consumption, average performance coefficient of the equipment, operating power of stations, etc.) the Russian power companies lagged behind the analogs in the developed countries.

  • There were no incentives to increase in efficiency, rational planning of the modes of production and electricity consumption, energy saving.

  • In certain regions there were power supply interruptions, the energy crisis was observed, there Was a high probability of major accidents.

  • There was no payment discipline, non-payments were widespread.
  • The enterprises of the industry were is information also financially "not transparent".
  • Access to the market was closed for new, independent players.

All this caused the necessity of conversions in power industry which would create incentives for increase in efficiency of the power companies and allowed to increase the investment volume into the industries significantly. Otherwise, at further expansion of the external economic cooperation, the Russian enterprises would lose an economic competition not only in foreign markets, but also in domestic market of the country.
