A structural analysis of energy consumption over the branches of industry and separate types of consumers is presented. It is demonstrated, on the basis of the development of the power-manufacturing capacities of Russia and global trends in the development of power electronics, that the introduction of energy-saving technologies involving the means of power electronics allows achieving substantial saving of electric power and reducing its deficit. Taking account of the structure of consumers over the branches of industry and specific features of the necessary means of power electronics, the limiting volume of the Russian market is estimated from the financial viewpoint, both with respect to the power electronic units and systems, and with respect to semiconductor devices used in them.
