Spagle Force-Federal Law of 23.11.2009 N 261-FZ RUSSIAN FEDERATION FEDERAL LAW On energy saving adopted by the State Duma on 13 March 1996 approved by the Federation Council on 20 March 1996 (In the federal laws of 05.04.2003) N 42-FZ; of 18.12.2006 N 232-FZ; of 23.07.2008 N 160-FZ; of 30.12.2008 N 309-FZ; dated 30.12.2008. N 313-FZ) This Federal Law regulates relations arising from energy-saving activities, in order to create economic and organizational conditions for efficient use Energy resources. Chapter I. GENERAL PROVISIONS Article 1. Key concepts This Federal Law uses the following concepts: energy conservation-implementation of legal, organizational, scientific, production, technical and economic measures aimed at effective the use of energy resources and the involvement of renewable energy in economic development; energy saving policy-legal, institutional and financial-economic regulation of activities in the field energy saving; energy resource- the energy medium currently used or may be useful in the future; secondary energy resource-an energy resource produced as a by-product of the main production, or which is such product; Efficient Use of Energy Resources-Achieving Economically Efficient Use of Energy Resources with Existing Technology and Technology Development and Compliance Protecting the environment; ( Law of 30.12.2008 N 309-F) Energy efficiency is the absolute or specific consumption or loss of energy resources for products of any destination set by government standards; unproductive energy consumption-the consumption of energy resources resulting from non-compliance with requirements established by state standards, as well as violation of requirements established by other regulations, Technological regulations and passport data for existing equipment; renewable energy sources-sun, wind, heat, natural water flow, and the energy of the nature of temperature gradients; alternative fuels-fuels (compressed and Liquefied gas, biogas, generator gas, biomass products, coal-fuel and others), the use of which reduces or substitutes consumption of energy resources of more expensive and scarce species. Article 2. Legislation of the Russian Federation on energy saving Russian Federation legislation on energy saving consists of this Federal Act and other legislation adopted under it. OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION powers between the authorities of the Russian Federation OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION Article 3. The scope of application of this Federal Law This Federal Act is applicable throughout the Russian Federation. The subject of State regulation of energy conservation is the relationship that arises in the process of activities aimed at: the efficient use of energy resources in their production, production, processing, transport, storage and consumption; State oversight of efficient use of energy resources; development of production and production of alternative fuels to replace More expensive and scarce energy resources; Development and use of energy-efficient technologies, fuel, energy-consuming and diagnostic equipment, construction and insulation materials, energy resource accounting and monitoring of energy resources use, automated power management systems; accuracy, reliability and unity of measurement for accounting of released and consumed energy resources. Article 4. The main principles of energy-saving policy State Energy-efficient state policy are based on the following principles: priority of efficient use of energy resources; State oversight of the efficient use of energy resources; obligation to take legal persons into account in their energy resources, as well as to account for natural persons their energy resources; include in State standards for equipment, materials and construction, vehicles for energy efficiency indicators; (Paragraph 6 is no more effective-Federal Law from 30.12.2008 N 313-FZ ) A combination of consumers, suppliers and producers of energy resources; interest of legal entities-producers and suppliers of energy resources in efficient use Energy resources. Chapter II: STANDARDIZATION, MANDATORY CERTIFICATION, CONFORMITY OF CONFORMITY AND METROLOGY IN class="doclink "href=" ?docbody= &prevDoc= 102040536&backlink=1 & &nd=102126838" target="contents "title=" "> dated 30.12.2008 N 313-FZ) Article 5. Standardization State standards for energy consuming products include energy efficiency measures in accordance with the procedure established by the legislation of the Russian Federation. In the production, production, processing, transportation, storage and consumption of energy resources, indicators for their efficient use, as well as energy consumption for heating, ventilation, hot water and lighting Buildings, other measures of energy consumption of production processes, are included in the appropriate regulatory and technical documentation. Requirements that are set in the area of energy use by state standards, technical regulations and rules are binding on the entire territory of the Russian Federation. Article 6: Mandatory certification and declaration matches (In the revision of Federal Law from 30.12.2008 N 313-FZ ) The energy consuming products of any destination, as well as energy resources, are subject to mandatory certification of or the declaration of compliance with the established laws of the Russian Federation Requirements. Mandatory certification of or declaration of conformity is carried out in accordance with the procedure established by the laws of the Russian Federation on technical regulation. (In the wording of Federal Law dated 30.12.2008 N 313-FZ ) The compliance of household equipment with the requirements set by government standards for energy consumption is confirmed by the mandatory marking of specified equipment. Article 7. Metrology In the production, production, processing, transportation, storage and consumption of energy resources, obligatory state metrological control and supervision in the field of energy saving are carried out. (In the wording of Federal Law of 30.12.2008) N 313-FZ) Chapter III. THE GOVERNMENT OF ENERGY CONSERVATION GOVERNANCE Article 8. The main principles of management in the field of energy efficiency of the state are implemented through the implementation of federal and interregional programs in the field of energy saving by: promoting the production and use of fuel and energy saving equipment; organizing accounting for and control of energy consumption; efficient use of energy resources; Energy surveys of organizations; the conduct of a State examination of the project documentation for construction; (In the wording of the Federal Law of 18 December 2006). N 232-FZ) implementation of energy efficiency demonstration projects; realization of economic, informational, educational and other activities in the field of energy conservation. Article 9. The development of an energy-saving state policy and the implementation of state supervision over the efficient use of energy resources OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION State supervision of the efficient use of energy resources is organized and conducted by the authorized President of the Russian Federation, the Federal Executive. Article 10. Energy surveys of the organizations Energy surveys are conducted to assess the efficient use of energy resources and reduce the costs of fuel and energy supplies to consumers. The mandatory energy surveys are subject to the organization regardless of their organizational and legal form of ownership if their annual energy consumption is more than 6,000 tonnes of conventional fuel, or More than one thousand tons of motor fuel. Energy surveys of organizations, if their annual consumption of energy resources are less than 6,000 tons of conventional fuel, are carried out by decision of the executive authorities of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation Coordination of work on efficient use of energy resources. The procedure and timing of energy surveys is determined by the Government Plenipotentiary of the Russian Federation as a federal executive body.
