Total Energy consumption

Total per capita consumption reached 5.3 toe in 2017. Per capita electricity consumption is around 6 330 kWh.

Total energy consumption decreased slightly between 2012 and 2015 (-1%/year) due to the economic crisis and reached 732 Mtoe in 2016, when it started to rebound with the improvement of the country's economic situation. In 2017, it recovered and ramped up significantly by 7% to ...

Crude oil production

Oil production increased slowly between 2004 and 2016 (1.4%/year) and remained stable in 2017 (547 Mt). In 2017, Russia was the world's third largest crude oil producer, after the Saudi Arabia and the USA.

In June 2018, Russia and OPEC countries agreed to pump more crude to help reduce prices and prevent a supply shortage. This ends the November 2016 decision to cut output by 1.8 mb/d ...

Natural gas consumption

Gas consumption decreased between 2011 and 2016, but soared by 7% in 2017 (481 bcm in 2017); it increased by 1.8%/year, on average, between 2000 and 2011, when it reached 476 bcm.

Gas is mainly consumed in the electricity sector (40%, i.e. slightly above its 2000 level of 39%). Industry represents 27% and the residential-tertiary sector 14% (down from 15% in 2000).

Power consumption

Total electricity consumption has increased slightly since 2010 (0.9%/year), with a net acceleration since 2015 (1.9%/year) reaching 916 TWh in 2017.

Industry is the main electricity consumer with 36% of the total (decreasing since 2002 when it stood at 46%), ahead of the tertiary sector with 18% (up compared to 2000, when it stood at 9%) and the residential sector with 17% (20% in ...

Renewable in % electricity production

In 2014, the Government set a target of a 2.5% share of renewables in electricity generation by 2020 (State Programme on Energy Efficiency and Energy Development), which implies about 14.7 GW of new renewable capacities by 2020. This target will not be reached, with only about 1 GW currently planned or under construction.

In 2016, the government set the available capacity for future ...

CO2 fuel combustion/CO2 emissions

In 2015, Russia submitted to the UNFCCC its 2030 INDC, which aims to limit GHG emissions to 70-75% of 1990 levels by the year 2030 (presidential decree N°752). Russia signed the Paris agreement in 2016, but its ratification and the submission of the definitive NDC are still pending. Considering the fall in emissions observed in the 1990s and the role played by forestry in Russia, the ...
