In order to build a constructive dialogue with all interested parties and develop the distributed generation market, the Distributed Power Generation Association works in close cooperation with state authorities and public organizations. The Association actively participates in the strategic development directions' elaboration of the industry by strengthening cooperation with the Government of the Russian Federation, the Energy Committee of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation; Russian Export Center, etc.
The Distributed Power Generation Association actively participates in legislative and processes on the distributed generation development. In 10 years, it has issued a number of important legislative initiatives aimed at supporting the industry. In particular, took part in development of the draft federal law «On the Distributed Power Generation» and also of the necessary amendments in the federal law dd. 26.03.03 No. 35-FZ «On the power industry» and the federal law dd. 27.07.2010 No. 190-FZ «On the heat supply».
In 2019, the Distributed Power Generation Association opposed a bill to introduce a charge for reserved electric power. According to the members of the Association, this legislative initiative can lead to an increase in the total prices of electricity and, in general, have a negative impact on the economic and technological development of the country's power utilities. In addition, it can put consumers with own generation in deliberately discriminatory conditions, and therefore slow down the development of the distributed power generation in the country. The Distributed Power Generation Association sent a letter of recommendation reflecting the position of the industry community on this initiative to the Government of the Russian Federation and the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation. The adoption of the bill was «frozen».
