Tyumen looks to lead on energy efficiency

Abstract:
Tyumen is one of a number of regional Russian cities participating in a pilot project aimed at slashing energy consumption, with each having already set up special energy efficient areas.

It's hoped energy consumption will be reduced by 30%, and each family will cut their public utility bills by a quarter with these measures. The next step is for several of the houses to be painted with nanotechnology paint. Just one millimeter of it replaces 20 centimeters of rockwool insulation and it's 7 times cheaper than siding.

This paint was once top secret and was used to cover the outside of space ships. Although, for the most part, the best ways to use less energy are not rocket science, with Elvira Nabiullina, Economic Development minister, stressing that the Russian way of thinking is one of the key obstacles on the way to a more energy efficient society.
