The choice of energy resource must be up to consumers – CEO of SUEK
13
Choosing one or another energy resource is not up to regulators or producers, but rather consumers, the CEO of Russia’s SUEK energy company told a Russian Energy Week session.

“We don’t work with regulated consumers, we work with people who are operating in markets and that is much more interesting and correct,” Stepan Solzhenitsyn told the session entitled ‘The Future of Coal in a World Shaped by the Climate Agenda: The End, or a New Beginning?’

“There is therefore no need to forecast how much coal there will be in this or that energy balance. And not just because forecasts are not a particularly noble undertaking, but because this choice must not be in the hands of suppliers or some officials but, rather, in the hands of consumers who should be getting the best possible choice, be it decarbonisation or new products.”

Solzhenitsyn cited the example of the creation of smoke-free briquettes. Made available to consumers in the Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk it captured 10 % of the market solely on the basis of the quality of the product.
