The Enabling PV Russia study shows the potential that solar power generation can unfold in Russia. Possible applications were analyzed using the example of the two regions Krasnodar and Kaliningrad. The analysis focused on the potential of medium-sized solar parks, photovoltaic diesel hybrid systems and small roof systems. The study, sponsored by the Federal Foreign Office, was prepared by the Berlin consulting firm eclareon together with the German Solar Industry Association and the Russian section of EUROSOLAR.

On 8 January 2009, the Russian government approved State Policy Guidelines for improving the Energy Efficiency of the power industry through the use of Renewable Energy for the period up to 2020.
Russia renewable energy 2020 targets:
- Overall target: 4.5% of share of electricity generation from renewable energy sources, excluding large hydro (over 25 MW).
The guidelines outline measures to be taken in three broad areas:
- Improving the state oversight system for renewable energy generation,
- levelling the playing field to make renewable energy more competitive, and
- improving renewable energy generation infrastructure.
