Implementing strategic documents while getting all market participants to work together; protecting buyers of green certificates
Hydrogen is a segment where we still have chances to make an early start, and instead of playing catch-up, work to become leaders in the field. [Companies – ed.] have come together and joined forces to develop an integrated strategic document for the country. It is called the Comprehensive Programme for the Development of Low-Carbon Hydrogen Power, and we are playing a key coordinating role in it. And the objective of this document, aside from everything else, is to set out specific goals and determine the technological resources which we could lead the way in, or at least localize right now, so as to not import foreign technology — Denis Deryushkin, Deputy General Director - Head of Analytical Center, Russian Energy Agency of the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation.
Today, we are again faced with the task of getting all participants working together to [build – ed.] a hydrogen unit market, and to do so at the start, on a voluntary basis. <...> According to our information, around 10 companies have confirmed their willingness to join us for the testing stage — Alexey Khersontsev, State Secretary – Deputy Minister of Economic Development of the Russian Federation.
The best from the proactive system should be transferred to a system which protects in general, and protects buyers of this [green – ed.] certificate. <...> This is so as to avoid duplication on the part of the producer, and to confirm that you were indeed the producer of electric power, and that it is a low‑carbon variant — Andrey Maximov, Head of the Department of Electric Power Development, Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation.
