Operating Activities

Electric energy transmission services

The principal activity of Federal Grid Company is the transmission of electricity via the Russian Unified National Electric Grid (the UNEG). Payments for this type of services are the main financing source for the revenue side of the Companys budget.

According to Russian legislation, electric energy transmission services through the the UNEG are monopoly-type activities and are regulated by the Russian Government.

The price for electric energy transmission services is determined via respective tariffs set by the Russian Federal Tariff Service, taking into account normative technological losses of energy during the UNEG transmission for the respective subject of the Russian Federation, as adopted by the Russian Ministry of Energy.

Since 2010, within the framework of measures to upgrade investor attractiveness for the power industry, tariffs for Federal Grid Company on services related to the transmission of electric energy via the the UNEG are set based on the method of return on invested capital (RAB regulation). The change in method ensured a significant increase in the tariff growth rate.

Over four years, the volume of electric energy transmission services provided by the Company increased more than 100%, reaching 136,558,888 thousand rubles in 2012, according to the Companys IFRS consolidated financial statements.

The number of our customers constantly increases. In 2012, the number of consumers for electric energy transmission services provided by the Company amounted to 207 organisations (having connections to the the UNEG).
