Abstract

Domestic fuels and renewables constitute less than 5% in the fuel balance of the Sverdlovsk region. However, the potential of renewables, including biomass, is higher. Some rural cottages and villages can be supplied with renewables placed around them. This paper describes the main actors in the field of developing renewable energy in the Sverdlovsk region, gives their classification (individual micro-scale consumers, joined small and mid-scale consumers, and other “actors”) and presents their desired behaviour. As a conclusion, the paper offers one of the possible ways to force the development of renewable energy by using an “inverse infrastructure” approach.
