Improvement of the energy efficiency of a national economy greatly enhances
energy security of the state, improves the environment and the quality of life of the population
and contributes to the social and economic development of any country. Energy efficiency is
often the least expensive means of meeting new energy demand. Governments of countries that
contribute to increased investment in activities aimed at improving energy efficiency and
implementing a set of government support measures that determine reduction in the energy
intensity of GDP of the countries, significantly save budgetary funds, reduce dependence on
energy imports and reduce environmental pollution. All that in combination leads to an
improvement in the indicators of sustainable development not only of individual territories, but
also of the national economy as a whole. Nevertheless, measures to improve energy efficiency
still do not have the desired effect on a global scale, despite proven numerous advantages and
potentials to be the largest resource to meet the growing demand for energy around the
world.Energy service contracts are the actual energy saving instruments which have proved their
success in many economically developed countries of the world. In Russia, the market for
energy services is in the process of formation and is significantly inhibited by the negative
impact from a number of groups of factors.
