Building Energy Efficiency in North West of Russia
Commissioning Unit: Russian Federation
Evaluation Plan: 2011-2017
Evaluation Type: Project
Completion Date: 05/2018
Unit Responsible for providing Management Response: Russian Federation
Documents Related to overall Management Response:
 
1. Recommendation:

4.1 Corrective actions for the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of the project

Design No Corrective Action Request (CAR) is raised 

Monitoring and Evaluation CAR 1: Develop a Final Project Report with lessons learned One of the target to be achieved under the Outcome 3 is that “Best practices and lessons learned (should be) shared across the NW federal region”. Neither the final report nor lessons learned was provided to the TE team. Therefore, the project manager is requested to develop, prepare and release a final report including lessons learned study, which outlines the main lessons learned from this project.

4.2 Actions to follow up or reinforce initial benefits from the project

R1: To update the estimation of GHG reductions due to the application of the EMIS in Pskov and Vologda Oblasts.

In November 2017, international company AF Consult revised GHG emissions reduction calculations, and presented updated figures to the TE Team. However, new data on energy consumptions in buildings, which might be entered after November 2017, would lead to additional GHG reductions, because it is obvious that as many buildings are entered as higher reduction is achieved due to the management of the energy consumption in the buildings. 

Management Response: [Added: 2018/05/11] [Last Updated: 2021/01/21]

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:

4.3 Proposals for future directions underlining main objectives

R2. To launch the process of certification of EMIS in accordance with the existing procedures and to launch EMIS for the entire Russian Federation, coordinated by the Russian Energy Agency, including securing funds from the Federal Budget for EMIS scale up and roll out.

One of the possibilities for scaling up EMIS could be a development of a proposal for the UNDP Russia Trust Fund to implement and roll out EMIS in countries in Central Asia and in Belarus.

Management Response: [Added: 2018/05/11] [Last Updated: 2021/01/21]

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.

Key Actions:

For the project manager in partnership with the Russian Energy Agency to promote EMIS for its integration into the existing State Information System GIS, as a mandatory part of the national energy reporting.
[Added: 2018/05/11] [Last Updated: 2019/01/14]
Project Manager 2018/12 Completed The recommendation was being implemented until the closure of the project and the UNDP Project Support Office in the Russian Federation. It is expected that the Russian Energy Agency will continue to promote EMIS. History
