RAO UES suggests creating an agency for guaranteeing investments in the electrical energy industry under the non-commercial partnership Trading System Administrator (TSA). As Deputy CEO of RAO UES Sergey Dubinin stated at a round-table meeting on reforming natural monopolies in Moscow, the management of the energy holding still insists on creating a mechanism for investment guaranteeing. According to him, this suggestion corresponds to the provisions of the RAO UES development concept. This mechanism is necessary to compensate to an investor the reimbursement of investments in the event the tariff, stipulated in an investment project, is higher than the actual tariff on the market. Additionally, it is planned to create a supervisory board of the agency, which is to hamper lobbying any interests. Dubinin pointed out that the Economy Ministry was currently discussing this issue.
