ABSTRACT

The paper demonstrates the necessity for Russia to review its development strategy for energy markets and ensure phased transition to energy efficient technologies. Although the Paris Climate Agreement only outlines certain guidelines, implementing its provisions will have an impact on the Russian economy. The reason is that many countries have already embarked on a journey to carbon-free solutions and prevent products that do not meet their standards from accessing their domestic markets. Applying the Paris Agreements and transiting to a low carbon – and consequently – energy-efficient economy in Russia will affect the real estate sector, in particular construction and operation of buildings, in many aspects, such as energy saving and the introduction of "green" standards. The paper analyzes the possibility of putting the Paris Climate Agreement into practice in construction and operation of buildings, highlights the problems which this implementation involves, as well as substantiates the lines in the state policy, which help promote the introduction of "green" standards in real estate.
