Energy Efficiency and Energy Security in the CIS

image of Energy Efficiency and Energy Security in the CIS

This study assesses the potential for energy conservation in CIS member countries to the year 2010 and explains how improvements in energy efficiency of member countries could contribute to enhancing their energy security. Achieving even part of the large energy conservation thought to be possible would have important environmental benefits since much of the savings would come from fossil fuels and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This study recommends a series of linked solutions to be implemented in stages as short, medium and long-term activities to achieve energy efficiency goals.



Role of cooperation of the CIS countries in energy conservation with each other and with third countries

The main driving force of integration in the area of energy conservation is the interdependence of the CIS countries in respect of energy resources. In its turn this force helps to shape the market of fuel and energy resources within the CIS space. Therefore, the energy conservation as a factor in energy security of the Commonwealth members has an inter-state character and the efficiency of its realisation will be improved if the foreign economic relations are set in motion.
