Solar Power in Russia
Norsk Energi helps to bring solar power to an off-grid settlement in Northern Russia.
A 37 kW solar power plant was commissioned in Kimovaara settlement of the Republic of Karelia (North-West Russia) end of 2019. After being seven months in operation, it cut the diesel power use by 33% on average. Integration of this plant into Kimovaara’s energy system was an issue, but after some time and after redesign of the system, all technical and logistical problems were successfully resolved . This project was managed by Norsk Energi and ANO Energy Efficiency Centre in Karelia with the financial support of Nordic Environmental Finance Corporation.
