Russia has a scheme of capacity supply agreements for financing new investments. And agreements that were created by us during the power reform, 10-year, are terminating now, and there is question whether to repeat them for the next 10 years and if to repeat on what goals they should be aimed, he said.

The final decision of the presidential meeting it is necessary to repeat them, the second stage of these agreements, they can be modified. They should be allocated for several goals And renewable energy is one of the goals, Chubais said.

Rusnano will file bids both for solar and wind power at a tender to choose renewable energy projects in 2018, he also said.
