Project Description
According to NDB website, Russia has vast untapped renewable energy resources, with non-fossil fuel based energy currently only accounting for 3% of total primary energy consumption of the country. In Karelia, a federal subject of Russia, energy generation capacity is low, with power imported from other regions of Russia. Power supply in Karelia is still not sufficient. Developing power generation projects in Karelia using renewable sources will help tackle this challenge and contribute to the region’s sustainable development. In this context, the project, with Nord-Hydro as a model project, is designed to enhance power generation capacity in the region and facilitate renewable energy development. The project is in alignment with the New Development Bank’s objective to accelerate green financing and promote renewable energy development. The NDB will provide two loans to support Eurasian Development Bank (EDB) and International Investment Bank (IIB) to on-lend to renewable energy projects. The two loans will finance the Nord-Hydro project to increase energy supply in Karelia region through renewable energy resource. The project is supported by the Russian government with a preferential tariff. With this project, a small dam and two hydroelectric generation plants will be constructed, providing a total installed capacity of 49.8 MW. A 220 kV power transmission line of 10-km will be constructed.
