Energy efficiency rests entirely on three things: proper regulation, subsidies and/or market mechanisms.
Alexander Chuvaev
The key role of government in using energy efficiently is to provide incentives and to impose regulations to achieve fair market terms and, ultimately, to lead by example. I think there are a lot of activities and efforts under way in Russia to make that happen.
