The Federal Law No. 261-FZ "On Energy Conservation and Increase of Energy Efficiency € introduces a new type of civil-law agreement - the energy performance contract (EPC). The contractor under this kind of arrangement undertakes to take steps aimed at energy savings by the customer and increasing efficiency of energy resource consumption. The Civil Code of the Russian Federation (the "Civil Code €) provides no regulation for such contracts, while the Law itself offers special regulation for only some of their aspects, so that in the remainder the parties to an energy performance contract are free to agree upon its terms and conditions subject to the Civil Code general provisions on contracts.
