– At each balance sheet section of the border facing the interests of two sides – the heating system and its users, one of which interested in the implementation of metering and the other, on the contrary, it does not want it. One of them takes what position depends on various local conditions: the state of heating and attached objects, acting regulations and tariffs for thermal energy, etc. The winner of this debate who has more powerful administrative levers. No wonder that in such situations energy conservation concern to the parties the least. " If talk about the industrial sector, used by many domestic energy firms tariff policy encourages users not to save, but rather to an overestimation of consumption. This is explained by the fact that price of fuel (gas), the lower the greater the volume of consumption, and for arrears specified in the contract amount the consumer must pay a fine. And the size of a similar penalty for exceeding the limit is usually much lower. It turns out that commercial companies have no incentive to implement energy-efficient equipment, the more so because its prices are quite high.

In such circumstances, much more profitable to burn cheaper fuel than to invest funds in energy efficient technologies. Even despite the fact that the modernization of industrial enterprises will not only reduce production costs, but in the long run to obtain substantial gains from trade quotas on greenhouse gas emissions under the Kyoto Protocol. However, sharply release energy prices are also impossible.
