Student: Ruslan Valiev

Supervisor: Anna A. Dekalchuk

Faculty: Saint-Petersburg School of Social Sciences and Area Studies

Educational Programme: Political Science and World Politics (Bachelor)

Final Grade: 7

Year of Graduation: 2020

This paper focuses on the capacity based renewable energy support scheme (CRESS) analysis in Russian regions. The purpose is to reveal the reasons why in some regions the CRESS was implemented, while in the others it was not. Statistical methods of analysis will be used to figure out the political factors that could affect its implementation from 2013 to 2018 in each region. Among them there could be distinguished: upcoming elections, the fossil resources endowment, the openness of the political regime, and the level of regions’ connection with the federal center. As a result, we have upcoming elections, the fossil resources endowment, and the level of regions’ connection with the federal center factors to influence the regions’ decision (not) to implement the CRESS.
