MOSCOW, January 10, 21:58 /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has instructed the government to improve the planning of the national power grid development and strengthen regions’ responsibility for drawing up power engineering programs, the official website of the Cabinet of Ministers says, adding the decision followed a working meeting and was addressed to the ministers of energy, regional development and economic development.
“In order to raise efficiency in the planning of power grid development and exclude counter-productive investments, it is necessary to submit to the Russian government, in accordance with the established procedure, draft regulatory acts [including changes to orders No 977 of December 1, 2009, and No 823 of October 17, 2009], as well as changes envisaging higher responsibility of Russian regions for working out programs of long-term development of regional power engineering systems,” the document’s authors emphasized.
The task is to be fulfilled before March 5, 2014.
