Sergey Machekhin, RusHydro’s Deputy Director General for project engineering, sustainable development and international cooperation, was addressing a session of the Second Eurasian Congress moderated by Sergey Brilev, President of the Global Energy Association.
“The hydroelectric sector in Central Asia could become a serious tipping point, the peak of development for the regional macroeconomy,” Machekhin told the session.
“In mountain regions, hydropower stations become a huge carbon sink. When we talk about the green economy, we speak immediately about a new economic growth point for our colleagues. These are the green certificates, that can be used in trade and issued on international exchanges. And they are yet one more driver of growth for our colleagues.”
