Renewables currently provide just 2% of Russia’s primary energy demand for heat supply, the main contribution coming from the use of biomass. The lack of available infrastructure for modern and efficient district heating networks is a barrier to the large scale utilisation of geothermal and solar thermal energy. Dedicated support instruments are required to ensure a dynamic development.
In the Energy [R]evolution scenario, renewables provide 68.5% of Russia’s total heating demand in 2050.
