Russian Energy Consumption Is 50% Larger

Energy consumption forecasts of the energy strategy were wrong

The energy consumption growth in Russia is 50% larger than planned by the energy strategy, Russia's power energy monopolist Unified Energy System CEO Anatoly Chubais said.

?Energy consumption forecasts of the energy strategy were wrong: a growth of 46-50 billion kilowatt/hours was planned for 2000-2005, but the actual growth amounted to 73 billion kilowatt/hours,? Chubais said.
