   Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak was appointed head of the group. His deputies are Energy Ministry Nikolai Shulginov, Deputy Energy Minister Pavel Sorokin and Industry and Trade Minister Denis Manturov.

    The Scientific Head of the Group – doubling as a deputy head of the group – will be the Rector of the St Petersburg Mining University, Vladimir Litvinenko. The group’s Secretary is to be Alexey Kulapin, head of the Russian Energy Agency.

    Other members include the heads of Russia’s largest energy companies, among them Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Board of Gazprom, and Alexey Likhachev, General Director of Rosatom.

    The guidelines for the development of hydrogen energy were set down in the document Energy Strategy 2035 – adopted by the government in June 2020. In accordance with that document, Russia is to export 200,000 of hydrogen annually by 2024 and 2 million tonnes by 2035.

    Plants within the Gazprom group are now producing more than 350,000 tonnes of hydrogen, the company announced in March. And other companies intend to set up their own production.

    In April, Rusatom Overseas, an affiliate of Rosatom which oversees Russian nuclear technology abroad, along with the government of the Pacific island region of Sakhalin and Air Liquide, French producer of industrial gases, agreed to conduct a technical-economic analysis by the end of 2021 on producing from 30,000 to 100,000 tonnes of hydrogen annually on Sakhalin.

    And at the St, Petersburg International Economic Forum in June, Novatek and Severstal signed a memorandum on a joint project to produce “blue” hydrogen from natural gas, using CO2 capture technology.
