New Energy market report from Business Monitor International: "Russia Power Report Q1 2016"

Russia froze tariff growth on state-regulated services including gas and electricity in 2014 - in an effort to ease pressure on household budgets and help lower inflation.

We maintain that Russian energy policy is orientating eastwards towards China in the wake of deteriorating relations with Europe. This will feed through into the power sector, where we have already seen projects mooted that would deliver export electricity flows to the Chinese market - presumably with backing from Chinese investors.
