Similar goals, divergent motives. The enabling and constraining factors of Russia's capacity-based renewable energy support scheme

Abstract: In 2009, the Russian government set its first quantitative renewable energy target at 4.5% of the total electricity produced and consumed by 2020. In 2013, the Government launched its capacity-based renewable energy support scheme (CRESS), however, the Ministry of Energy (2016d) expects it will merely add 0.3% to the current 0.67% share of renewables (Ministry of Energy, 2016c). This raises the question what factors might explain this implementation gap.
