Active Consumer: Optimization Problems of Power Consumption and Self-Generation
To solve problems of demand management in terms of smart energy systems (Smart grid), we need a mathematical model of active consumer decision-making. Existing models either do not consider important aspects of consumer behavior, or are too complex for use in multi-agent simulation. A mathematical model of an active consumer is proposed, based on which we formulate and solve the problem of optimization of electrical appliances and consumer equipment, as well as determine the loading conditions of self-generation, under which the consumer problem allows simple and effective solution. The proposed approach is illustrated by equipment optimization of a single household.
Development of Russian electric power industry in recent years is characterized by a multitude of problems and a decrease in a number of performance indicators. It dissatisfies consumers and encourages them to implement various measures to reduce risks and costs of energy supply. This creates preconditions for the emergence of «active» consumers in the domestic electric power industry. Given this trend it would be appropriate to switch from Supply Side Management to Demand Side Management. This will require the implementation of a wide range of measures, including strategic issues of industry development, legal framework and transition to a customer-centric market model.
Principles and mechanisms of implementation Smart Grid, that are successfully realized abroad, cant be automatically transmitted to Russian ground. What is from this viewpoint the specificity of Russia in organizational, economical, technological and resources aspects - this question is decided in the article by the authors.
This Study was prepared by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the Russian Energy Agency (REA), and the United States Energy Association (USEA) under the framework of the U.S./Russia Bilateral Presidential Commission Energy Efficiency Working Group’s Russian/American Smart Grid Partnership Initiative. This study was designed to provide the Russian and American stakeholders with on overarching 360 degree perspective on the major impediments to Smart Grid deployment in the U.S. and Russia. The study doesn’t include recommendation; it only assesses the current barriers that prevent smart grid technology deployment in the United States and Russia. It is organized into two parallel sections, one focusing on the impediments to smart grid technology deployment in the United States and the other on the impediments to its deployment in Russia. A common analytical framework for the study was jointly developed by the U.S. and Russian counterparts to ensure that the studies were parallel in their analyses and the impediments are divided into the following high level main Smart Grid related themes: Smart Grid Concept Markets Efficiency Cross-Subsidy Generation Consumer Participation Behavioral Norms Data & Analytics Smart Grid Investment Environment Education Grid Modernization A parallel series of in-person interviews were conducted in the U.S. and Russia with relevant smart grid stakeholders including government agencies, regulatory officials, infrastructure companies, electric utilities, industry associations, market operators, and research institutions. The interviews ranged 2-3 hours in length. The subjects were informed in advance that their opinions were not for attribution, leading to a candid exchange of opinion. A customized questionnaire jointly developed by the Russian and American expert consulting teams was utilized during each stakeholder interview.
Under the conditions of low energy rises the need for a control system housing sector with a new ideology , which is the interaction of producers and consumers. In developing countries, ensuring the control of production, distribution and consumption of energy through smart grid technology (or SmartGrid). The article discusses the creation of the primary metering infrastructure in the residential sector, as the initial phase of the smart grid in the implementation of energy efficiency management . The experience of developed countries analyzed the organizational and economic methods of the primary metering infrastructure , are considered to be implemented in Russia .
The article is devoted to the analysis of changes in electricity market connected with Smart Grid implementation. Characteristics of new market participants are listed as well as changes in the roles of already existing agents. Economic analysis of the changes in terms of market conjuncture is given.
The paper examines the structure, governance, and balance sheets of state-controlled banks in Russia, which accounted for over 55 percent of the total assets in the country's banking system in early 2012. The author offers a credible estimate of the size of the country's state banking sector by including banks that are indirectly owned by public organizations. Contrary to some predictions based on the theoretical literature on economic transition, he explains the relatively high profitability and efficiency of Russian state-controlled banks by pointing to their competitive position in such functions as acquisition and disposal of assets on behalf of the government. Also suggested in the paper is a different way of looking at market concentration in Russia (by consolidating the market shares of core state-controlled banks), which produces a picture of a more concentrated market than officially reported. Lastly, one of the author's interesting conclusions is that China provides a better benchmark than the formerly centrally planned economies of Central and Eastern Europe by which to assess the viability of state ownership of banks in Russia and to evaluate the country's banking sector.
The paper examines the principles for the supervision of financial conglomerates proposed by BCBS in the consultative document published in December 2011. Moreover, the article proposes a number of suggestions worked out by the authors within the HSE research team.

At present many industries reveal tendency for setting up of vertically integrated companies (VIC) the structure of which unites all technological processes. This tendency proved its efficiency in oil industry where coordination of all successive stages of technological process, namely, oil prospecting and production -oil transportation - oil processing - oil chemistry - oil products and oil chemicals marketing, is necessary. The article considers specific features of introduction of "personnel management" module at enterprises of oil and gas industry.
