According to a recent World Bank/ IFC report Russia's current energy inefficiency is equal to the annual primary consumption of France thus making Russia one of the world’s most intensive energy users.  This can be partly explained by its world’s largest land mass, centers of population in some of the coldest areas on earth, the world’s 10th largest economy and a predominance of heavy industry. Achieving Russia's full energy efficiency potential would cost a total of $320 billion to the economy and result in annual cost savings to investors and end users of about $80 billion, paying back in just four years. Benefits to the total economy are much higher: $120-150 billion per annum of energy cost saving, additional earnings from gas export, increased economic competitiveness of economy and healthy environment.

For European investors in the Russian economy energy efficiency is both a risk and an opportunity.
