Green Energy in the Arctic
14 October 2021
16:45—18:00
The priority of Russia’s chairmanship in the Arctic Council is ‘Responsible Governance for a Sustainable Arctic’. In this context, the region’s development should not only take into account the vulnerability of the Arctic, but also its potential contribution to the transition to a low-emission economy and, consequently, to the fulfilment of the goals and objectives of the Paris Climate Accords. Regional development must be based on advanced innovative technologies, including expanding the use of renewable energy sources to improve the living standards of the Arctic people. Numerous new challenges, including the growing role of renewable energy sources, involve complex issues that go beyond technologies in such areas as the economy, regional development, and many more. This integrated approach helps developing a ‘transformational dialogue’ to voice, understand, and resolve the various aspects of these complex problems through equal participation of all stakeholders. What challenges and threats does the Arctic face amidst this ‘technological transition’? What are the prospects for developing nuclear power generation in the Arctic? Can the development of hybrid energy projects in the Arctic (diesel generation + RES) increase the availability of renewable energy for consumers in the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation? How can the development of a gas chemical cluster based on the resources of the Yamal Peninsula contribute to a low-emission economy?
