Apparently, no one in a flat can change that temperature, every room is heated equally.
Is that surplus heating...? Or is it just a result of Russian splurging on gas?
Russia is quite heavily set on a nuclear path to decarbonization, and I dont really see that they have that much of a choice. - Russia has good hydro reserves, and quite substantial biomass waste from their forestry operations, but other renewable options do not really get along with russian weather. At all.
Not that carbon is why they are doing it - Russia is building reactors because burning gas that could be sold abroad is an affront to gasproms accountants, and the cold war left them with an enormous legacy of institutional expertise in all things related to fission.
Also, the planned Arkhangelesk, Voronezh, Saratov, Dimitrovgrad Chukoyka, Severodvinsk, Leningrad and Severs plants are to be either exclusively heating, or cogen plant which, no, windmills really not an option for that.
Or is it just a result of Russian splurging on gas?
According to a friend who has worked with post-Soviet energy on a city level, the efficiency is horrible with lots of heat leaking out.
So I would say that it is probably a legacy of large-scale planning that did not really care about energy efficiency.
