The growth trend in electricity prices seen throughout the world, and expected liberalization of the Russian energy market in 2012 may contribute to higher growth of prices on the energy market. Thus internal gas prices are expected to increase by more than 25% per year, starting next year. As a result, by 2015 in the country, they can grow more than fourfold.

Now electricity is very cheap in Russia: the Nordic power market NordPool wholesale prices for electricity and a half times higher than those in European Russia, in Western Europe, electricity prices twice as high in Italy – in four. Abroad in the development of energy-saving subjects invested fortunes.
In China in 2006 adopted a large-scale program to support private business engaged in the development of led projects, it would cost the Treasury at $ 754 million. There have calculated: If you change only one third of the country's lamps and fixtures, will be spared the power that produces the largest npp in the world. Worth it. In the U.S., a similar program until 2011, the Government allocates about $ 1 billion. We were on such investments represent only a dream. And despite the fact that the standard calculation, we consider only the direct savings, and set of proxy indicators, such as reducing energy shortages, the decline in new construction, reducing the consumption of cables and wires, etc., give the effect that actually reduces the 2-3-year-old payback period of led lamps, at least in half. Macroeconomic benefits of led lighting: 1.
