Belarus

Strategy of technological development of Belarus up to 2015 (Resolution of the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Belarus No. 1420)

Executive
Resolution; Strategy
Passed in 2010
The Strategy aims to reduce the energy intensity of different industrial sectors by 10-30% (textile and clothing industry: 25-30%; production of building materials and construction 30%; wood, wood products and paper industry 10-15%; agriculture 10-12%). It lays down the objectives for energy efficiency improvements in the ‘electricity, gas and water' sectors. Among others, the targets include:
  • Annual savings of fuel and energy resources equal to 1.015 million toe compared to 2009
  • Development of technologies for energy production from alternative sources, as well as from oil shale and lignite
  • Development of technologies for 100% recycling of coal ash from power plants and development of peat and biomass electricity and heat production
  • Development of technology for biogas production from organic waste
  • Modernization of energy sources through the introduction of highly efficient CHP technology
  • Installation of steam and gas turbines in existing boilers and transforming them into mini-CHP in order to improve the efficiency of power equipment
  • Introduction of photovoltaic technology and optoelectronic technologies, and energy efficient LED lighting and alarm devices and systems

  • 10-15% reduction energy intensity of wood products and pulp by 2015 against a 2008 baseline
    Industry | Intensity target | Target year: 2015 | Base year: 2008
  • 1,015 thousand TCE fuel and energy resources saved annual by 2015 against a 2009 baseline
    Industry | Intensity target | Target year: 2015 | Base year: 2009
  • 30% decrease in energy intensity of construction by 2015 against a 2009 baseline
    Industry | Intensity target | Target year: 2015 | Base year: 2009
