International Cooperation to Develop a Low-Carbon Hydrogen Sector: Alliances and Partnerships
We are at the point where a new energy market is emerging. Each country will try to take its lead in terms of technological solutions. <...> We need to form unified technological solutions so that either the technology can be exported or the hydrogen itself. We need to solve the issue of technological standardization, legal issues, we need clear mechanisms to attract investment in this industry

International Cooperation to Develop a Low-Carbon Hydrogen Sector: Alliances and Partnerships
About investment: serious investment decisions should already be taking place in this area. There is such a movement. There are many multi-level projects at different stages. McKinsey estimates the current volume of investments at USD 240 billion. About 50% is going to countries outside the EU and the U.S.: Asia, Australia, Latin America. At the moment, the leader of hydrogen consumption is China – they consume 25 million tonnes of hydrogen per year, while the EU consumes only 10 million tonnes per year <...>. In China they are stimulating the consumption of hydrogen, they are carrying out projects to develop technological solutions in the field of hydrogen, and it is bearing fruit. <...> We need to think about this, otherwise it will be difficult for us to increase our market, because there is no motivation

International Cooperation to Develop a Low-Carbon Hydrogen Sector: Alliances and Partnerships
Powerful development is only possible with strong support from the state. If we do not invest in technology development, we will have no reason to work with this hydrogen. At the same time, we need to create incentives to develop demand for hydrogen. <...> We need to form incentives and motivation systems to develop production capacity

International Cooperation to Develop a Low-Carbon Hydrogen Sector: Alliances and Partnerships
If there is economic efficiency, investments are collected and channeled. But the entry threshold into this market is very high – from USD 500–600 million. This is the first stop factor. The second is a very long project implementation period. Third, we are just forming the market, just forecasting economic efficiency

The Importance of the Climate Agenda in Key Eurasian Economies
How do we assess the development, ESG dynamics in the EAEU? In 2021, financial instruments were issued on the territory of the EAEU in the amount of RUB 250 billion, which is a multiple higher than in the previous period. According to the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the EAEU countries and Tajikistan need to invest more than USD 550 billion in decarbonization by 2030, that is, almost USD 70 billion annually. It seems that in order to attract them and operate them effectively, it would be right to think about creating a unified ESG infrastructure in our common space. I think that we are practically ready for this; the infrastructure in Russia is almost ready and will begin to operate in full starting from the beginning of 2023. Kazakhstan has progressive solutions that are already functioning, and there are great developments in other countries

The Importance of the Climate Agenda in Key Eurasian Economies
The volume of green financing that Sberbank implemented in 2021 and continues to implement this year: last year we issued 25 billion green bonds, they were used to refinance renewable energy sources. And last year we finished with a portfolio of RUB 306 billion in green loans. And as of 1 June, this amount is RUB 395 billion, which indicates that funding continues. These are not new projects, these are projects that have been launched before. And we see this as a great demand, great opportunities on the market side

The Russian Fuel and Energy Sector in a Time of Transition
Later on, we will of course have to take decisions and achieve the right balance between investment amounts and hitting carbon-related targets, while gradually introducing renewable energy sources and increasing their share. However, it is absolutely clear that our base – gas – will remain regardless

The Russian Fuel and Energy Sector in a Time of Transition
We have excellent prerequisites in place. Our gas generation production is currently at 47%. We have a major share – 38% if I am not mistaken – of production coming from nuclear and hydro energy. This is an excellent share, which will ensure we have a stable and high-quality economy during this period – a period of transition

The Russian Fuel and Energy Sector in a Time of Transition
In order for new technology to be developed, implemented, and made more powerful, a balance needs to be struck, particularly in this period of transition. It appears that everything currently happening in the EU is not so much a crisis – so to speak – of alternative energy sources. Rather, it is about certain difficulties, and even, if I may say, mistakes that were made at the stage of planning for the energy transition,

Business in a Post-pandemic World: Responsible Investing in the Future
ESG, or sustainable development, has already become a kind of new standard, or a new guarantee for successful business all over the world. <...> The pandemic has further accelerated this process and this ESG transition. In addition to the fact that we can already see [it, Ed.] on both state and corporate levels, [ESG transition, Ed.] has received extra financing. For example, the way out of the post-COVID crisis across the world is now seen through a 'green door‘, through ESG-related projects, primarily environmental ones. As far as I know, three trillion dollars have been allocated to this globally
