Recommendations
1

To update the estimation of GHG reductions due to the application of the EMIS in Pskov and Vologda Oblasts.

2

To launch the process of certification of EMIS in accordance with the existing procedures

1. Recommendation:

To update the estimation of GHG reductions due to the application of the EMIS in Pskov and Vologda Oblasts.

Management Response: [Added: 2018/05/11]

The project management team agrees that the calculations reported in the PIR 2016-2017 were not final because by July 2017 works on the establishment of EMIS and pilots were not completed. However, in November 2017 the revised GHG emissions reduction calculations were presented to the Final Evaluation Team. The Project reported the achievement of around 60% from the initial target (including the impact from EMIS) and is planning to exceed this figure due to EMIS operation in 2018-2019. During the Final Steering Committee meeting in October 2017 both Vologda and Pskov Regional Administrations officially confirmed that EMIS operation is included into the regional budget financing and will be supported by relevant departments (Regional EE Center in Vologda and Pskov Utilities Company in Pskov)

2. Recommendation:

To launch the process of certification of EMIS in accordance with the existing procedures

Management Response: [Added: 2018/05/11]

The project management team fully agrees with this recommendation. The Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation (MED) and the Russian Energy Agency share this opinion too. During the Final Steering Committee meeting in October 2017 a representative of MED confirmed that the Project initiatives on using EMIS as a state energy monitoring and verification tool are interesting for the Russian Federation. The new national EE Plan includes a special section regarding further dissemination of Pskov and Vologda Energy Management experience across Russia. In October 2017 the second annual Regional Energy Managers meeting was held where the representatives of 12 Russian regions declared their readiness to implement the Project experience in EMIS operation.
