“This strategy must reflect modern trends and contain answers to the challenges we face, first and foremost the challenges linked to the climate agenda,” Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak told a meeting of senior Energy Ministry officials.
“We understand that the task today is lowering greenhouse gas emissions and improving the efficiency of the fuel and energy complex in terms of CO2 emissions.”
“We will have to tackle this seriously, approach it in a comprehensive way and work it out in the ‘New Energy’ strategic programme.”
The other strategic task facing the Russian energy complex is diversifying the traditional sectors of the fuel and energy complex.
This must proceed, in the first instance, through the development of new aspects, like LNG, oil and gas chemistry and hydrogen energy.
In addition, due attention must be paid to the development of international cooperation, on traditional markets and on new markets, like the Eurasian Economic Union. The Member-States of the Eurasian Economic Union are the Republic of Armenia, the Republic of Belarus, the Republic of Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic and the Russian Federation.
