Green energy is already becoming the ‘new oil’ worldwide, and Russia needs to implement a larger number of new projects to create alternative energy sources
For us, hydrogen means not just an energy transition, but also a diversification of the economy, not only because oil and gas will run out soon, but also nobody will buy without tax, and then they will buy the types of energy with a minimum carbon footprint, because this will be related to the price. That is why hydrogen is promising — Valery Limarenko, Governor of Sakhalin Region.
Water-based power generation is great in terms of an understandable power generation factor. <...> The main advantage is that the cost of generated electricity does not depend on the cost of fuel. Recently the coal price has risen catastrophically, and the perspectives of gas prices are unclear — Roman Berdnikov, First Deputy General Director, Member of the Management Board, RusHydro.
Speaking of the advantages of tidal power plants, they are a long lifetime, in our modern economy land transfer is not required, and the amount of energy generated can be predicted. Tidal plants have biological permeability for the passage of biological resources, fish are an important part of the entire environmental agenda. This is not only energy from a renewable energy source, this is also a green technology — Konstantin Korotov, General Director, Kamchatka Development Corporation.
Today nobody says that we are shifting away from coal and gas. They are going to be the main energy sources for a while, for 30, 40, 50 years, according to many assessments, but I am certain that the time the generation will dictate a much faster transition to alternative energy sources and achievement of carbon neutrality — Gadzhimagomed Huseynov, First Deputy Minister of the Russian Federation for the Development of the Far East and the Arctic.
