Abstract

The regional power system of the Sverdlovsk region with an annual electricity consumption of over 40 billion kWh per year is one of the largest in Russia. There are powerful mining, metallurgical and machine-building enterprises on the territory of the region which require large volumes of cheap thermal and electric energy. One of the options for reducing the cost of electricity is to change the structure of the installed capacity of power plants. The key facility of the power system is Reftinskaya SDPP with an installed capacity of 3800 MW, which operates on coal and provides up to 40 % of electricity generation. Reducing the cost of electricity in the future can be achieved by reconstruction of power units at Reftinskaya SDPP, as well as its transition to Kuzbass coal. In addition, by 2030 the commissioning of new generation facilities in the region may take up to 2000 MW due to the construction of a new power unit at the Beloyarsk NPP (1200 MW), small gas generation facilities (up to 500 MW) and due to the construction of small hydro power plants (up to 300 MW). The possible potential for reducing the cost of electricity when changing the structure of electricity generation in the region can be no more than 30 %. Taking into account the long construction time of power plants, the structure of their installed capacity and the structure of electricity generation will not change in the region in the future until 2030, and in order to curb the growth of electricity tariffs in the region, innovative market management mechanisms or other methods of electricity production are required.
